Summer Emails

Letters from your new teacher(s), Mr. Foreman, and the PTA After School will be sent out by mid-August. Each year you must give us permission and provide us with the email you would like us to use (even if you think we have your email address, you still need to do this every year). If we do not have permission to email the letters, we will send them home via regular USPS mail.

  • Please email Debby Wattenbarger at dwattenbarger@ps154.org with the following information:
    Child’s Full Name, Current Grade, Your Name & Preferred Email Address (you can include two if needed)


Ordering a tool kit is NOT compulsory, but it helps keeps your child's classroom stocked with much needed supplies (chosen by the teachers), supports the PTA, and keeps you from having to rush around shopping and lugging bags of supplies to the school in September. These supplies will be delivered to the school by the end of August and then hand delivered to your child's classroom (by movers and a few hearty volunteers) before the start of school. Easy peasy!

Order by June 30 for the best pricing and delivery to the school. Extended online ordering is available through EduKit's Last Chance Program from July 1st through August 9th.  Last Chance orders are subject to a $20 additional fee and will be delivered to your home before school begins. (You will need to lug your Last Chance order to school.)

A complete list of items included in each kit can be downloaded from the PS 154 Windsor Terrace School ordering page.

If you have any questions or problems please contact Virginia Jarvis at virginiamjarvis@gmail.com or the EduKit representative Colleen Sullivan at colleen.sullivan@edukitinc.com. If you need to pay by check please write your child's name and grade and leave a check for the appropriate amount in the PTA lockbox by June 27.
