Dear Families,

State tests begin next week with the ELA exam. Please click here for an important message from the School Principal Gluck-Schneider

The P.A. has some wonderful events coming up to share with you all!

• April P.A. Meeting & Math Fun Night: April 9, 6:30-8 PM.

While we talk business, the children will be treated to math fun and games by Mathnasium Forest Hills (http://www.mathnasium.com/foresthillsny). The math games are primarily for grades 2-5, but younger children may join in if you are interested. Please let us know if you're planning to attend so we may give our visitors a head count. (RSVP to president@pa144.com).

• Disco Night at Club 144 and Spirit Week!

To celebrate the last of the state tests and generally celebrate our amazing community, we will be holding a week of Spirit Activities for all to enjoy. For the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade families, there will be a dance party on the evening of Friday, May 2 (6-8:30 PM). Dance the night away and de-stress from the test! Admission will be $5 and include soft drinks and favors, with great music throughout.

• 25th Annual Career Day!

On May 15, our children will enjoy presentations on various professions throughout the school day. This is a wonderful event every year, and we are calling for extra hands to help make the day a success! See the flyer for more information on how you might get involved: http://pa144.com/14/CareerDay.pdf

• Grand Auction & Talent Show, May 31, beginning at 2 PM.

We’re continuing to solicit some great items for our auction, and invitations to join our talent show are forthcoming. Talk to your favorite businesses about providing vouchers or merchandise, or offer your own professional services or talents up for bid.

• Lost & Found.

There are two bins of items our children have misplaced in the cafeteria waiting to be claimed. Please have your children look for their missing items (or come ask to check the bins yourself). It takes up so much space, and is a discourtesy to our aides, cafeteria, and custodial staff, who are constantly trying to match things to their owners. Let’s make spring cleaning happen together!
