Welcome to the new and improved P.S. 185 Website! Extra special thanks to Nathan Bond for making this a reality!
Friday, March 2nd is the PTA’s Annual Spring Gala! Be sure to get your tickets for a fun filled night of dinner, dancing and great prizes. Contact the committee at 185Fundraiser@gmail.com for tickets or additional information. The Gala is the PTA’s largest fundraiser of the year and we need your support to be able to keep funding all of the events, supplies and enrichment that we are so happy to offer. Get a table together with other parents or neighbors!
You should have received your annual green Parent Survey envelopes before the break. Please complete and return your survey. Once returned, your child’s name will then be entered into a raffle to win a $25.00 gift card generously donated by your PTA. Classes with 100% return will enjoy classroom parties in the spring! We hope you “strongly agree” that PS 185 is the place to be!

We’re sure you’ve been hearing on the news about the high number of influenza cases being reported. If your child is sick, PLEASE KEEP THEM AT HOME to avoid exposing other students and staff to the virus. They should not return to school until they have not vomited for 24 hours and/or they do not have a fever (without the use of Tylenol or Motrin) for at least 24 hours as well. For example: if they vomited or had a fever before going to bed but not the following morning DO NOT send them into school that day. Keep them home until the next day. You should also review this letter from the NYC Department of Health’s Bureau of Communicable Diseases, which contains information to help decrease the risk of spreading illnesses at school; for additional information, see these resources on Noroviruses and Influenza/Flu that may be of assistance in answering questions from students and parents.
