School Year 2016-2017


On behalf of the Parents Associationís Board Members, allow us to welcome you to another school year at P.S. 196. To parents who are new to this wonderful school, we welcome you with open arms.

Can you believe itís October already? We have lots planned for this month and the upcoming school year.

On October 7th, the PA will be hosting a Parent Mixer Cocktail Party at Oililoli. Parents can come meet board members and mingle with fellow 196 parents. Space is limited so please make sure to RSVP promptly.

This month we will be running, for the first, a Yankee Candle Fundraiser. Brochures and more information will be coming home with your children later in the month.

On Sunday, October 23rd we will have our Family Fitness Funday. Flyers went home last week but you can always find information about these on our website. Itís a great way to show our children how important and fun exercising can be.

We will also be hosting our annual Halloween Party on Sunday, October 30th from 4pm-7pm. Flyers will be going home the week of October 10th with more information. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting new ones.

Here are a few ways to get involved with the PA:

*Volunteer- We love when parents get involved. It doesnít have to be a yearlong commitment. If you have time to help out, please contact us at info@PA196.org

*Donate- Every bit helps. Donations allow us to give back to our children. Whether itís supporting our amazing after school program or throwing the end of year carnival.

*Sign up to join our email list. Go ahead, itís real easy. Just click on the

ďJoin Email ListĒ button on the bottom of the page and we will make sure you know whatís going on with our PA.

*Visit our website PA196.org We update information daily on not just whatís going on with the Parents Association but also on whatís going on in the school.

*Come to our monthly meetings which are on the third Tuesday of every month. A list of meeting dates can be found under the ďAbout the PAĒ tab.
