Dear P.S.20 Families,


#Sustainability is making a final call to all of us at #PS20, before the end of this school year 2020-2021.


Clean out your closets, and shop outdoors for a good cause!


The #PS20PTA $1 Rummage Sale is happening on Saturday June 19 from 11am-3pm in the schoolyard (Clermont Ave.) This is an outdoor-only event.

Shopping second-hand is an affordable and sustainable way to keep clothing out of landfills. 
To make this event a success we need your gently-use donations, and volunteer power. Scroll down to read how you can help.
