OUR SCHOOL'S EVENTS ARE COMMUNITY BUILDING

Not only are our events an important part of the PTA’s fundraising activities, PTA events are also about bringing our community together in fun ways to allow everyone associated with P.S. 154 to show their support for our children and their teachers. Your participation helps our children and our community grow!

SUN DOJO’S FOCUS FOR FALL!

SAT, SEPT 22, 2:30 - 3:30 PM
AT SUN DOJO, 1256 PROSPECT AVENUE

Focus for Fall is a new seminar designed for 1st-5th graders that will set your student off to a great start this September!

Martial Arts has long recognized the power of focus, a skill that that can be trained, and which can greatly increase our ability to learn. Studies have shown that children who train in the martial arts frequently have better grades, classroom conduct and socialization*. Sun Dojo is presenting a seminar that will enable your child to tap into the power of focus and equip them with the tools they need to have their best school year ever!

Used Book Fair

Dec 17-Dec 21

Pre-loved books will be collected and distributed by grade so that all of our children will have access to new (to them) books.  We’re looking for more help organizing this essential event — please email Used Book Fair Chair, Inna Kalin if you’re interested in learning more!

We’re organizing a wonderful (and free) New-To-You Book Fair in December, and will start collecting books at our first PTA meeting.  Please group your donations by your best guess of grade level, and bring them to school on Monday, September 17 at 6:30pm.

With a used book fair, we get all the benefits of the Scholastic one, without the complication of handling money during the school day -- every student gets to participate at the same level.  We decided to test this concept this year after the superintendent implored PTAs to stop running Scholastic-type book fairs at a diversity town hall last spring. For those interested in buying new books while supporting our school, we’re looking into partnering with Terrace Books for a special week or two.  Stay tuned for more information!
