Beast Relief Committee
It's Cinco de Rhino!!! This Thursday and Friday, May 3rd-May 4th, look for the Cinco de Rhino raffle, spare change drive, and bake sale at drop-off and pick-up.

  2. Rhino Sweets: Contribute to the cause at our two-day bake sale.
  3. Spare-Change Drive: Dig under the sofa cushions and bring the rhinos all your spare change.

Proceeds will benefit the the International Rhino Foundation, which works to ensure the survival of the world’s five remaining rhino species.

 

Lost & Found
Are you missing a pair of sneakers? Snow boots? A sweaters, hat, or water bottle? Please check the Lost & Found by the school office! Also, please email rebecca@ps107.org if you’re missing a white, unmarked magnetic key card for your home or office; or if you lost a hoop earring at the auction gala.

 

MathMagic!
Please note that there is no MathMagic! this Wednesday, May 2, due to state testing. However, MathMagic! will be back the following week, May 9th, at 7:30am, when Brooklyn Game Lab will be returning once again to host a special morning of math-inspired games and activities with our students. This was hugely successful last time – even kindergarteners were doing algebra! – and we are so excited to welcome sponsors Brooklyn Game Lab back again. Please join us!

 

NYS Math Testing
This is a reminder that NYS math tests will be administered to 3rd-5th grade students this Tuesday and Wednesday. Make-up days for illness or absence will be on Thursday and Friday. If you have any questions or concerns about testing, please speak to your child’s teacher. Please note that the 4th + 5th Grade Book Club, MathMagic!, and Learning Friends will not meet on Tuesday or Wednesday due to testing.

 

PTA Fun Run
The 11th Annual PTA Fun Run in Prospect Park is less than two weeks away! Join us on Saturday, May 12th for this family-friendly walk/jog/run through our neighborhood park to raise money for ALL participating Brooklyn PTAs. To register, go to: https://nycruns.com/races/?race=brooklyn-pta-5k-fun-run-for-schools

Please register family members together under one name rather than individually to make the most of the funding formula ($20 for the first registrant, $5 for each additional family member up to 5). Registration and Sign-in begins at 9:00am and the “race” begins at 10:00am. If you have any questions about joining our group, please email angela@ps107.org.
