I hope we are spared too much snow, but some thoughts to keep you warm in the meantime:
• March's General P.A. meeting is being held Thursday night, March 6th, from 6-6:30 PM, followed by Movie Night with our Parent Coordinator, Siobhán Kyne. We will enjoy a visit from J.R. Nocerino, a former 144 parent, who will come to discuss a Forest Hills girls' softball league. If you're attending the movie (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), please be sure to send back the ticket form to Siobhan tomorrow. The kids will have dessert while we meet. We'll have sign-up sheets at the meeting for auction solicitors, and briefly discuss next steps for forming a nominating committee for our 2014 P.A. elections.
• International Night. Saturday, March 8th, 4-7 PM. Join us for food and fun! Tickets are $10 each, and include a delectable buffet, songs, henna tattoos, and other great activities. Click here for more information and to dowload the Ticket...
• Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held next Tuesday, March 11th, and the children have a half day. The P.A. will be there with order forms for Spirit Wear and Coupon Books for sale. Be sure to see Siobhán as well to fill out your school surveys for the year.
You should have received in your children’s folders a notice asking for your help in soliciting donations for our grand auction this spring, our largest fundraiser of the year. The success of the auction will allow us to define our programming for the 2014-15 school year.
What has been built here by our current and previous administrations and our entire faculty is a unique culture of imagination and inquiry, rare in any public school, but especially so in this economy. The Parents’ Association has been an integral part of carrying out a vision that not only identifies the arts and sciences as a key part of the development of all children, but creates the means for deeper exploration during the school day, among peers.
We have an opportunity for growth, which will only be possible if we all work together. There's a way for every parent in our school to contribute to our auction. Click on our flyer to see what might work best for you.
