Upcoming PTA Meeting and PS 185 Goes Pink

October 11, 2018

October's PTA Meeting will be held this Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 PM.  Children are always welcome to attend.  This is your opportunity to hear about what is going on in the school and for you to ask questions.   Please make every effort to attend!!!

 

Also, please keep sending in those membership envelopes.   Remember all money collected goes to supporting many different activities in the school.   Please check out our PTA Guide here for more information.  

 

October is Breast Cancer awareness month.  Pink ribbons and a banner will be going up near the main entrance of the school.


***Fifth grade parents:  Your student should have brought home this year’s list of MS Open House dates as well as the 2019 Middle School book. This year’s Middle School application must be completed online.  You will be getting a Creation Code mailed directly to your home from the DOE soon.  You’ll use that code to do the application online. Mary Maguire will be setting up a date to do a workshop at school but there will be two (2) information sessions regarding the new process during the MS Fair. The deadline to submit your application will be December 3 this year.  Mark Twain’s request for testing must be done online as well. Feel free to contact Mary Maguire with any questions you may have.

 

Save the date for Spring Gals which will take place on Friday, March 8th from 7PM to 11:30PM at the Dyker Beach Golf Course.  Our fabulous Gala Committee is looking for monetary and prize donations.  Letters were sent home asking each child to donate $10 to be used to purchase gift items for raffle baskets.  This is our big fundraiser so help is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please reach out to our Gala Committee at 185fundraiser@gmail.com.   

 

Stay tuned for more information regarding the Halloween Dance-A-Thon and Parade to be held on Halloween. 

 

Also, the Book Fair, which will be held on November 15 and November 16 is looking for volunteers for assistance.  Please click here for more information and to volunteer.
