THANK YOU FOR POETRY NIGHT
What a wonderful evening at PS 154, with parents, friends, and teachers watching brave students share their original words of poetry and their favorite published poems. Thanks to the parents of the Poetry Committee for organizing this wonderful event: Alex Lesman, Jeff Allred, Marcella Hahn, Francesca Richer, and Astrid Lewis Reedy.
REQUEST: AUDIO EQUIPMENT FOR GRADES 3-5 MUSIC CONCERT
We are looking forward to seeing our PS 154 families at the Grades 3-5 music concert at Bishop Ford / K-280 Auditorium on May 22. Due to broken equipment in that auditorium, we have a request of our families. Do any parents have any of these pieces of equipment that we could borrow for the day? If so, please get in touch with music teacher Ms. Christine Gabel at email@example.com. Thank you!
