We Want to Hear from You!

Hard to believe but first day of school is around the corner!  We have been busy getting ready for another amazing year at PS 199.  We are overhauling our classroom technology and the audio system in the auditorium, expanding the recess coach program and welcoming the new leadership of Principal Louise Xerri! All in all, a lot to look forward to in September!  

The first few weeks are packed with great events so please review the upcoming events on the school calendar.   

Enjoy the last few days of summer and we'll see you in the Yard on Sept 4th.

Eric Shuffler, your PTA President and the 2014-15 PTA Executive Board
