Volunteers Needed For Track Team Election Day Bake Sale

Tuesday is Election Day, and the Track Team will be hosting an Election Day bake sale at the Armory to feed all the famished voters of Park Slope. We still need lots of donations and volunteers to help sell and man the table. Please sign up here and bring your child along to help. Email with any questions. 

Fall Photo Retake Day

Parents that are not happy with their child's photo can have their child re-photographed. They need to send their child in with the unwanted photos to return to Irvin Simon.

Children that were absent on photo day can have their photo taken.  They just need to show up - no paperwork necessary.

Photos are taken first thing in the AM.

If you have any other questions, contact Jennifer Kattamis. 

Last Call For Lice Payments (No need for animated gif)

Thanks to those who have paid your lice fees, but if you haven’t gotten around to it yet, please remember to do so (unpaid fees are taken out of the PTA budget.)  You can pay via Zelle and Paypal to  If you're unsure whether you've paid yet, e-mail, and we will check the records for you. 

4th & 5th Grade Book Club Update

The 4th + 5th Grade Book Club hosted our Biggest meeting yet - 17 kids - who participated in a thoughtful discussion about Hello Universe
Next month's book will be Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos. Dead End in Norvelt is a novel about an incredible two months for a kid named Jack Gantos, whose plans for vacation excitement are shot down when he is "grounded for life" by his feuding parents, and whose nose spews bad blood at every little shock he gets. But plenty of excitement (and shocks) are coming Jack's way once his mom loans him out to help a feisty old neighbor with a most unusual chore - typewriting obituaries filled with stories about the people who founded his Utopian town. As one obituary leads to another, Jack is launched on a strange adventure involving molten wax, Eleanor Roosevelt, twisted promises, a homemade airplane, Girl Scout cookies, a man on a trike, a dancing plague, voices from the past, Hells Angels ... and possibly murder. 
We will gather on Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 am on the 4th floor. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to our next meeting regardless of whether you have attended before and even if you haven't finished the book!
