Updates, so many updates (we'll try and keep them short): 

Tuesday is Giving Tuesday!

If all that gratuitous spending on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday has you feeling down, cleanse yourself by giving to PS 107! In the sprit of Giving Tuesday, you can give back to the school through donating to the Annual Fund here, or giving your time by volunteering for one of the many opportunities available in the next couple weeks! (See posts below.) 

Only 2 More Days To Get Gear!

 

Get your gear before time runs out!  Order are only open until November 27th, and will be delivered by December 19th. Order online here!

Book Fair starts Wednesday, but you can volunteer today!

Classes will begin taking trips to Powerhouse on 8th this Wednesday. Find when your child's class is going and volunteer to join them here!

Two Amazing Parent Workshops this week!

First, on Tuesday morning at 8:30 in the cafeteria, join PS 107 Guidance Counselor Sarah Green for her workshop, Developing A Growth Mindset.  "Moving beyond a fixed mindset to develop a growth mindset can be transformative for students. Learn about strategies and also some tips on helping children manage stress and anxiety."
 
Then Thursday night at 6:30 on the 4th floor, by popular demand, we're bringing back Julia Storm for her workshop,  Screen Time Rx: Raising Healthy, Balanced and Mindful Kids in the Digital Age. Learn the ins and outs of your child's online world through a dynamic presentation and Q&A.  Featuring the latest research on screen time, gaming and social media, plus tips, tools and resources for your family. Bridge care will be available by contacting Sandy Phillips at director@psafterschool.org , and pizza and childcare will be provided during  the event. 
Movie Night This Friday!
This month, Movie Night has two movies to choose from! Incredibles 2 or WALL-E.
$25 for one child, $15 for each additional child.
Drop off at 6:30. Pickup at 8:45.
Pizza and childcare included.
(Children of volunteers get in free!)
Volunteer for Art Day!!!
Art Day is just around the corner (Saturday, December 8th) and we still need lots of parent (and student) help to make it happen so sign up today! Some jobs to consider:
  • Performers: Both parent and students can sign up to perform and show off their many talents. Dancers, magicians, singers, actors, mimes (only a few though) or any other talent!
  • Run a workshop: Or assist someone who is running a workshop. Need ideas? Some great workshops that have been a big hit are: cartooning, sewing, still life and portrait drawing, Gyotaku fish prints, mobiles, and anything else artsy you can think of!
  • Bake sale: Bake things! Or sell things others have baked!
  • Lots more!

Sign up here or contact Sarah Harlow with any questions!

Trees For 107!

If you are planning to purchase a Christmas tree this holiday season, Foley Firs is donating $10 for every full size tree sold to our PTA. Just mention our school when you purchase your tree (very important!) and sign the school’s fundraiser list and our PTA will receive the donation.

Their tree stand is located on the corner of 8th Street and 8th Avenue in Park Slope. They offer free delivery and will gladly set the tree up, provided the tree stand is in place. 

Foley Firs will contribute a personal donation if there are more than 55 participants that mention our school. This donation is 50% of our total amount raised and it will double to the full amount of funds raised if we reach over 110 participants!

OK, thank you. You can go now.
