PTA MEETING THIS WEEK, GALA, MEGA RAFFLES & 5th GRADE ANNOUNCEMENTS

January 20, 2019

NEXT PTA MEETING WILL BE HELD  THIS THURSDAY, JANUARY 24, 2019 @6:30PM! HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!

 

There is no school on Monday 1/21 in observance of Martin Luther King Day.

 

Friday 1/25 will be ‘NAME DAY’ here at 185.  The Name Jar, our January book of the month led us to this activity.  Everyone will be given a name tag to wear for the day showing their first name.  Students may try to find out the meaning of their name or the story behind their name on this day.  It’s also a way to introduce yourself to another person and make a new friend.

 

GALA

The PTA’s Annual Spring Gala will be held on Friday, March 8, 2019, at the Dyker Beach Golf Club.  It will be a fun filled night of dinner, dancing and prizes! It’s also the biggest fundraiser for our school! Paperwork was sent home.  Classes have been asked to take a gala journal to honor their teachers, to donate a class basket and for any monetary donations.  If you are interested in donating any prizes, please contact the Gala committee at 185fundraiser@gmail.com.   

 

MEGA RAFFLES

$10,000 Mega Raffle. $100 per ticket. Only 300 will be sold.  Proceeds benefit the PTA.   Papers were sent home or you can send in an envelope with your child's name and class to the attention of the PTA: MEGA RAFFLE.  Checks can be made payable to PS 185 PTA.  You have to be in it to win it.
