A Message For Grandparents & Special Friends supporting PS 107
Fri, Dec 6 10:33am

The PTA has heard that some families would like to invite grandparents and special friends to contribute to PS 107 PTA’s Annual Fund, so we created the message below that you can forward to them. We are so grateful for the support of everyone in our school’s community.

Thank you!!!!

Dear Grandparents and Special Friends of PS 107,

Today is PS 107’s Grandparents and Special Persons Day. We love sharing our community with you, and we hope that you feel the school is a great place for your student(s) to learn and grow. 

To provide all of the enhancements that make our school special, we rely on the generosity of PS 107 families. Although PS 107 is a public school, government funding does not cover the full cost of the enriched education we would like for our students. 

This year through the Annual Fund, the PTA is supporting:

  • Arts residencies for each grade

    • Pre-K & Kindergarten: Creative Movement with Together in Dance

    • 1st grade: Gotta Sing Gotta Dance with TADA! 

    • 2nd grade: Building the Brooklyn Bridge with League of Young Inventors

    • 3rd grade: African Dance with Alvin Ailey

    • 4th grade: Ballroom Dance with Dancing Classrooms

    • 5th grade: Improv with Freestyle Repertory Theatre

  • Art teacher (funding 80%)

  • Lowering student:teacher ratio in lower grades

  • Social and emotional support for our students through extra days for guidance counselor

  • Science field trips and project-based learning

  • Author visits

  • Professional development for teachers

  • Teacher and program grants because no teacher should have to spend her or his own money buying supplies for their classrooms or students

  • AND MUCH MORE!!!!

You can help! We are about halfway to our ambitious 2019-2020 Annual Fund goal of $250,000, and we hope that - with your support - we will reach $125,000 or beyond by the end of this weekend. Our goal works out to roughly $500 per student, and gifts of all sizes help us get there. Please join our community of support for students. We greatly appreciate your generosity.

Just visit www.ps107.org/AnnualFund to give today

You can also send your gift via check - made out to "PS 107 PTA" with your student's/students' name in the memo - to:

PS 107 PTA

1301 8th Ave

Brooklyn, NY 11215.

Thank you! 

With gratitude,

PS 107 PTA
