Help with PTO Conference Meal

Calling all Parents and Cooks!

Parent Teacher Conferences will soon be here and the PTO is asking parents to help provide a meal for our teachers on the night of Tuesday, February 11th. These tend to be very long, and busy days for the teachers and the convenience of having a meal ready for them to eat throughout the evening is much appreciated! Please go to this sign up genius link:

There you can sign up to bring items on or before February 11th. Thank you for supporting our teachers during conferences.

Dismissal Reminder

Just a reminder that 138th Street is a one way street from 8:00-9:00 in the morning and 3:15-3:45 and 2:00-3:00 on Wednesday.

Cars should not be blocking both sides of 138th Street and the upper parking lot.
