FALL FUNDRAISER
 
MS54 PTA's fall fundraiser includes a magazine sale, deals on digital products, and gift items. The homeroom with the most participation will be awarded a pizza party! Find out more here.

In past years, the PTA asked parents to consider a gift subscription for the library as part of the fundraiser. Here is a list of magazines the library would like that are available for parents to order.
 

DISTRICT 3 CEC TOWN HALL EVENT

The District 3 Community Education Council will host a town hall event with Chancellor Carmen Fariña on Wednesday, October 28 from 6 to 8 PM at P.S. 191, 210 W. 61 Street. Don't miss this opportunity to discuss issues and concerns in our district.

SPRING AUCTION NEEDS WORKERS

Thanks to everyone who attended the kick-off Auction Meeting. It was nice to see so many new faces.  We are very excited for this year’s event. We have some great new ideas and will be making some BIG changes. However, in order to make this a spectacular party we still need more volunteers. Aside from collecting donations, we need parents to help with the following committees: Baskets; Raffle Sales; Data Entry; Solicitations; Communications; and Food. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Auction Committee at auction@ms54pta.org or come to the next meeting on Thursday, November 12th at 8:45 AM in Room 133.

SAFETY PATROL --> NEW THIS YEAR

We are asking parents to volunteer a half hour one time during the school year to walk around the neighborhood at dismissal time. If you are interested in signing up, please email Alix Botwin Krell.

BE A CLASS PARENT

Being a class parent is a great opportunity to work with teachers, staff, and other parents while at Booker T. If you have any questions about the role or responsibilities, please email Parent Coordinator Anne McIntosh Pejovich.

PARENT ENGAGEMENT THURSDAYS

At this Thursday's Parent's Engagement Meeting, the Ryan Health Center will discuss the services they provide to students. The meeting is from 8 to 8:45 AM in the auditorium. Please see the MS54 Calendar for details on all upcoming Parent Engagement Thursdays.
