Daily Announcements

You are all invited to join us for PS 158’s Curriculum Night on September 17, 2014. 

There are two classroom sessions available for you to attend;

5:30-6:00 or 6:30-7:00, at which time you will get an overview of the upcoming year from your child’s teacher. 

Specialty teachers (art, music, science, PE, media specialist) will be talking to families in the Media Center, room 310.  They will also have two sessions, 5:00-5:30 or 6:00-6:30. You need only attend one of each of the two sessions. 

Curriculum Night is for grownups only.  Babysitting will be available for a fee of $5 per child.  You can sign your child in for babysitting in the small cafeteria. 

Please return the RSVP form you received to your classroom teacher by ASAP, if you have not already done so. 

We look forward to seeing you all on the September 17th

Dear Parents: 

This year the PA is collecting contact information electronically.

In your welcome packets that you received on the first day of school is a 'contact information' sheet. In lieu of completing this form, you can enter your information (name, phone number, address and email address) by clicking on the link below.  

The information that you enter goes directly to a spreadsheet that is only accessible by the PA--your information is not live on the Internet. 

For kindergarten parents who have already entered this information, please edit it to include your child's class code.
This system will help to ensure your information is entered into the database accurately.
