BIKE LANE PROPOSAL — PASSED!
Thank you to Principal Havlik and parent activist Anne Lanier for your many months of effort to make our streets safer. And a huge thank you to the many other 154 parents and community members who took the time to go to meetings this past week at our school and the Greenwood Cemetery chapel to ensure the success of DOT’s new 10th and 11th Ave Bike Lane proposal, designed to slow traffic and make our streets safer. We did it! The proposal was approved by our Community Board 7 on Wednesday. Check out the plan here.
RESPONSIVE CLASSROOM TEACHER TRAINING — SCHEDULED!
Response Classroom, described by experts as one of the most “well-designed evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) programs” is coming to 154 in the 2017-18 school year, thanks to the Social and Emotional Experience (SEE) Committee of the School Leadership Team. The teacher training will take place Nov. 7-8, 2017 and June 6-7, 2018. Here are more details about the training. Our teachers, administration, staff and parents have worked so hard to realize this goal, and we couldn’t do it without YOU funding it.
HELP ART TEACHER MS. KELLY JUNE 29
If you’re available the day after school lets out, Thursday June 29, please consider spending an hour helping Ms. Kelly move art supplies from her room in the MMR into the regular classroom she will be occupy in September. Kids may pitch in, or hang out and draw while the grown ups work. Sign up here.
SCHOOL TOOLKITS — DEADLINE JUNE 30
You can order school supplies from Edukit now so you won’t have to do school shopping at the end of the summer, and your child’s supplies will be delivered right to the classroom. Plus, part of your payment benefits the PTA. Ordering a toolkit is not mandatory! You will get a list of the items in August if you prefer to buy on your own.
A REMINDER FOR SUMMER: SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL WHILE YOU SHOP!
This August when you're doing your back-to-school shopping, don't forget about our "free money" fundraisers:
AMAZON SMILE: Use this link instead of the regular Amazon site and they will donate a portion of your purchase to our school. Be sure to bookmark the link and use it every time you shop. And feel free to tell relatives and friends who might want to contribute as well!
MABEL'S LABELS: These personalized, dishwasher- and washer/dryer-safe labels will keep your kid's clothes, containers, backpack, and lunchbox from going missing. And, if you click "Support a Fundraiser" on the top right corner of the page and select PS 154 Brooklyn, they'll donate 20% of the sale to our school!
FATHER’S DAY COOKIE SALE THANK YOU
Thank you to 1st grade dad Alex Costas for single-handedly selling hundreds of cookies to benefit our school last Friday. Thank you also to Meg Moorhouse for the awesome designs. And thank you, PS 154 families, for your generosity with this fundraiser! We cleared more than $2,000 that will benefit the school via PTA-sponsored programs.
If you find yourself in need of beautifully designed, delicious cookies, Eleni’s Cookies, the bakery that gave our school the cookies at a great discount, has given us a coupon code, “PS154” which will give you a 10% discount on any order between now and next June.
