Hi PS10 Families,


As we head into the Spring Break, we wanted to send a few reminders about dates below and also announce the 2018 Read-a-thon winners!  See everyone back in school on April 9th!





 Congratulations to all the students, teachers, and families who helped make PS 10’s 2018 Read-a-thon a huge success. This year, 520 students read a total of 479,363 minutes and raised over $35,000 for the school. We surpassed last year’s totals by almost 20,000 minutes and more than $5,000! WOW!
