Join PS10's Crayola ColorCycle Collection and Recycle Old Markers!

This school year, PS10 will be joining Crayola's ColorCycle program. All around PS10, students and teachers will be collecting used markers that are ready to be discarded and recycling them instead. Please help support our efforts by putting any used markers you may have around the house - even non-Crayola brands, highlighters and dry erase markers - in a bag and sending them into school with your child. Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Amy in K209 will be spearheading the collection with all PS10 teachers. All donated markers will be shipped to Crayola as part of their amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills! Thank you for your participation and support!

 

Lunch and Recess Volunteers - Reminder we need Volunteers

Our volunteer program offers valuable hands-on assistance throughout lunch recess period. Our mission is to foster inclusivity, kindness, empathy, wellness, and fun in a safe and enabling environment. We work to empower our community with an organized infrastructure that allows the kids to have a great experience during lunch and recess period. A total of three classes per week will share in the work of supervising lunch and recess. We have three lunch periods every day between 11am -2 pm. We will need at least 2-3 parents for each lunch/recess period. 

Thank you for volunteering to assist all of the students during Lunch & Recess period!  We are fortunate to have an interested, committed and involved parent community.  

Please sign-up for a time slot here!  We welcome volunteers even when it’s not your classes week.

 

Bringing Bowling to PE - Donors Choose

Ms. Kramer would like to bring bowling to PE.  Here it in her words. On the first and second week of Physical Education, she asked our students what they want to learn and practice in class this year. The curriculum is based around what the students share during this discussion. This year, the students asked to learn to bowl. However, they do not have bowling equipment to make that happen.  If you’d like to donate, she has setup a fundraiser at this link.

 

Mabels Labels

Tired of losing your child's lunchbox, gloves, coats, water bottles, sweatshirts, hats, backpacks, school supplies etc. etc. Avoid rifling through the lost and found this year and support PS10 at the same time by fundraising with Mabel's Labels! To purchase your labels, visit this link and search for PS10 PTA (Brooklyn).  Before purchasing, make sure you see "You are now supporting PS10 PTA (Brooklyn)".

 

PS10 is collecting Box Tops!

Looking for an easy way to raise money for PS 10? PS 10 is participating in the Box Tops program throughout the school year and all the proceeds go to the PTA’s general fund to support enrichment activities for the students. Box Tops labels can be found on many products including LARABAR, Annie’s, Ziploc, Papermate, various cereals, and many more. There are two ways to submit Box Tops to PS10:

1) Clip any Box Tops dated after 11/1/19 and put them in the collection box located on the black shelf outside the PTA office.Please do not submit expired Box Tops. 

2) Download the Box Tops App! Click here to download the Box Tops App for easy submission without the clipping. Once you’ve downloaded the app and selected Public School 10 Brooklyn as your school, just scan your receipt right away whenever you buy products with the Box Tops label and our school will receive the proceeds. Please note that we do not get credit for clipped copies of the new scannable Box Tops. You must scan the receipt.
