PS10 NEWSFLASH // OCTOBER 12TH, 2020

Dear PS10 Families,

Welcome back to Remote and Hybrid families and to all our teachers and staff! We are one big PS10 family. We are a little delayed in getting Newsflash up and running but we are also working in a new world!

The PTA E-board and the Administration are excited about the new school year and we look forward to a wonderful year ahead. The PTA has been working all summer to get the school community and building ready for this new year in our new world. But we have a lot more work to do! Please join us on the Board, in committees, and at “events!” Elections are on October 22nd at 6 pm on Zoom!

This Newsflash will give you a snapshot of what’s going on with the PTA and the school in general. Please read on and stay updated-- don't hit delete!

Thank you again for all your support, we will really need your help this year whether it’s financially, with your time, or with your ideas!

Sincerely,
Heather Volik, PTA President & PS10 Executive Board
