We Want to Hear from You!

Step up for the PTA!  Our May PTA meeting is when we elect next year's PTA Officers.  All positions are open and we encourage you to think seriously about becoming the next generation of PTA leaders.  PTA officer positions include President (up to 2), Vice President (up to 3), Treasurer, Asst. Treasurer, Fundraising (up to 2), Recording Secretary and two corresponding secretaries.

Three School Leadership Team (SLT) positions are also open and will be voted on in May as well.

After the break, the Science Center/Greenhouse Committee is hosting our Earth Day Celebration on April 26th and the Diversity Committee is hosting our first Kids Film Festival on May 16th.

A lot of exciting events are on the horizon as we enter the final stretch of the school year.

Enjoy the time off and we'll see everyone soon!

PS199 is proud to host our first-ever Mixed Bag Design Fundraiser from April 23-May 7, 2014!  Mixed Bag Designs offers eco-friendly, reusable totes and other accessories in fun patterns including chevron, polka-dot and camouflage.  Stock up on bags, beach and shopping totes, travel gear and more for reasonable prices ranging from $10-$40.  Catalogs and order forms will be sent home today with all students.  Filled out order forms and check payments (payable to PS199 PTA) can be submitted via Kid Mail or dropped off in the school office.  PS199 will receive 40-50% of all sales!  Share with friends and family who aren’t local by sending them to the PS199 Mixed Bag Designs Fundraiser Web site:  Off-line sales are encouraged so that PS199 receives the maximum proceeds.  Happy shopping!
