Congratulations PS107 for another successful Fall Festival! The gross income from our festival was over $26,000!

Despite a rainy forecast the weather cooperated and families enjoyed bouncing, face painting, donut chomping, miniature golf & corn hole on the lawn, taking pictures in our amazing PS107 Fall Festival photo booth, making slime, playing Battle Lab, playing archery, watching Liam's magic show, painting mini-pumpkins, playing Human Foosball, tasting 14 different kinds of chili, enjoying 15 different flavors of pie, tossing pies, eating popcorn & cotton candy, and savoring more than 39 different donated desserts!

A fundraiser like this is impossible to pull off without generous support from our school and neighborhood community. A HUGE THANK YOU to all who attended the festival and all who volunteered their time to help make our annual festival a success!! We had over 350 VOLUNTEERS who came out to help with setup, cleanup, and everything in between.

Thank you to the entire PTA Board for your support: Leigh Smith, Jenara Prieto, Angela Kurzawa, Kate Gitnick, Rebecca Calvani, Ellen Jan, David Kausch, Bobby Markowitz, Deepika Sankaran, Cathy Campbell, Stephanie Hochman, and Brandie Krulik.
