Please join us in the student cafeteria at 9:15 A.M. for Parent Coffee. We are fortunate to host our Assemblyman, Bob Carroll. He will update us on upcoming New York State Legislative meetings in Albany, including introduction of new bills and the state budget.  Join Us!

 

READ-A-THON BEGINS FRIDAY!!

On Friday 2/2 we kick off the month-long PS 10 Read-a-thon! Your children will come home with fun bookmarks and a packet full of info for our school's month-long reading adventure! We want to outdo last year's mega-successful Read-a-thon by encouraging the kids to collectively read 500,000 minutes and raise $30,000. Look in Yellow Folders for the Read-a-thon packet — an envelope containing instructions, tips for asking for donations, and a reading and donation log form. And go to ps10.org/readathon to find all this and more.

 

*NEW* this year: your family has the option to log reading minutes digitally on the MoxieReader app if you choose!!! Download it and check it out.  There will be a code per class and your Class Parents should help distribute that to each classroom.
