Hello P.S. 144 Families!

Thank you for a fantastic start to the new school year!

Important Note: Registration for the P.S. 144 After School Program (ASP) has officially closed. If you receive an e-mail from the ASP, kindly respond promptly because it affects how quickly they are able to put together classes and finalize registration for everyone.

P.S. 144 families and friends, we need YOU! YOU support the programs and activities that bring the community together and enhance the quality of the educational experience at P.S. 144. Your contributions help make this possible. There is not enough money in the New York City Department of Education’s budget to support the arts, sciences, music and physical education for all students. It’s that simple.

To enable our children to have these opportunities, we must raise the funds. These funds are used to support various enrichment programs right here at P.S. 144, such as Queens Museum of the Arts, Solar One, DNA Learning, Making Books Sing, Guggenheim Museum-Learning Through Art, among other wonderful programs.

We are planning several exciting September and October fundraising events!

We need class parents like YOU! - Do you have spare time? Are you willing to help, approachable and efficient? Looking for a way to take an active role in your child’s classroom and school? Be a class parent. Class parents play a vitally important role in the P.S. 144 community as liaisons between teachers and the parents. Visit http://www.pa144.com/classparents.html to find out more and complete an application. If chosen, you will be notified by your child’s teacher.

As always, thank you for your time.

Best wishes,
Shawn & Jodie
