“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is positive involvement of parents” -Jane D. Hull
P.S. 215’s PTA Fall Harvest
On a crisp fall afternoon, P.S. 215 families gathered to celebrate the season at their PTA Fall Harvest Festival. The schoolyard was decorated with beautiful artwork by our students. Parents admired their children’s creations while stocking up on healthy fruits, vegetables, and sweet treats at the farmers market. Children picked and decorated sugar pumpkins, played games, danced, and covered their teachers in ‘Silly String’. This year’s festival was a great success, filled with wholesome family fun.
P.S. 215’s Italian Heritage Celebration
P.S. 215 faculty and PTA collaborated with the NYJTL afterschool program to celebrate Italian Heritage Month. This Saturday family enrichment gave us the opportunity to share all the richness of the Italian culture with our school community. They shared a “family-style” Italian dinner, participated in an Italian inspired art activity, danced and sang along with professional vocalist, Angelo Venuto. ‘Ci Siamo Divertiti Moltissimo!’
PS / IS 95 is off to a strong start! On Monday, September 17th PS / IS 95 formally welcomed all families back to school. All families were invited to the school to hear about the amazing and rigorous year that lies ahead for their children. Parents met with Ms. Ndzibah, their principal to discuss all of the resources and programs available to their children. Parents had an opportunity to meet all of the school’s amazing support staff and hear about their roles in the school. Families then traveled to the classrooms where they met their child’s teacher and discussed the curriculum, class rules and expectations. It was an informative night that has set the tone for a productive school year.
