P.S. 139 Launches Its First Gift Card Fundraiser!

The Parent Association of P.S. 139 is launching a new kind of fundraiser.  No catalogues!  No boxes of chocolate!  Instead, we invite you (and your friends and family) to buy gift cards from your favorite stores through the Parent Association.  The P.A. will receive the cards at a discount, and can use the money raised to continue to support the school’s music program, Multicultural Night, Science Night, after-school clubs, and Pre-K literacy curriculum.

HOW DOES IT WORK?  Please look out for the P.A. flyer and gift card form in the student folder that your child brings home.  Details will also go out on the P.S. 139 P.A. Facebook page and to the school Yahoo group.

Happy holiday gift card shopping in support of our school!

Book Fair This Week! November 2 – 6

Parents and Caregivers, you can purchase books during school hours and conference night, or send your child with money on the day his/her class is scheduled to visit.  Reach out to your child’s teacher for that date.

Also, just a friendly reminder when sending your child to school with his or her book allowance that all items are taxed.

Looking forward to seeing you!
