Box Tops for Education


This year, our school will be participating in the Box Tops for Education™ program and the MS 67 PTA Box Top Coordinator is Christiana Moy. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. This school year, our school’s earnings goal is $1,000.

To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on everyday products, clip them, and send them in to school. Students can submit them into the collection boxes set up in every homeroom. For more information on the Box Tops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school’s progress, visit Be sure to become a member to receive exclusive coupons and recipes and learn about extra ways for our school to earn. Enter contests to help our school earn even more!

I hope you’re excited for everything we can do this year with Box Tops! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at We are here to make our school’s Box Tops for Education program a huge success this year. Remember to also invite your family and friends to help clip box tops for our school! Every box top you clip is money for our school. Thanks for your help!

Meet the Board

Megan Rha is the proud parent of an MS67 7th grader, one former student, and three students-in-waiting (yes, FIVE kids!).  As a graduate of the New  York City public school system, Megan has seen firsthand the importance of a safe, supportive, and challenging school environment for students during their formative middle school years.  She considers it a privilege to serve as a bridge between the parents and the school.  She hopes to give parents both information, and a voice, and to strongly support the kids, the teachers, and the administration as they pursue their academic and enrichment goals.  Aside from her primary commitment to her family, Megan runs her own business, an established and successful law firm in Bayside, and is fluent in the Korean language.
Dina Katz is a proud parent of four kids: an MS67 6th grader, an MS67 8th grader, and two 9th grade alumni. Although she is a full-time working mother, she is very involved in her children’s education. She has served as a member of the School Leadership Team for the past two years and is continuing in that role again this year. Her goal is to collaborate with the school administration and help keep parents informed and involved in our ever-changing school community. She is also fluent in Russian.
Ruth Harrigan is busy as a bee. She has one child in College, one in High School, one in Middle School, and one in Elementary school, not to mention her husband who graduated from grad school just last year. She believes in volunteering at MS67 to foster a stronger bond between the parents and the school as this is her fourth term as the Treasurer. Ruth had a career in finance for more than 20 years. Three years ago she got laid off and decided to change careers by turning her hobby of beekeeping into a full time job. She formulated a line of skincare which is infused with pure honey. Ruth’s mission is to help save the honeybees by donating to 1% For The Planet through the sale of her products. She wants to leave this planet better than she found it for the next generation to enjoy… sweetest regards.
Hila Shalev-Gideon is a parent of  2 boys, a 7th grader and a 9th grader, a former MS67 student. She is a seasoned PTA board volunteer who understands the importance of parents’ involvement in kids’ education. Hila is a high school teacher. She is also fluent in Hebrew.
Arvee Toskas has been involved with the MS 67 PTA as fundraising VP since last year. Currently, she has a 7th grader at 67, an older son who graduated last year and a daughter who is a sophomore in college. She is excited to begin the new school year and hopes that students and parents will participate in the many activities the PTA has planned for the year!
Randy Lee will be serving as one of our Fundraising Vice-Presidents this year. She works for Morgan Stanley in Garden City. She is the proud mother of two daughters, a rising seventh grader at MS67 and a rising fourth grader at PS221. This year, MS67 PTA will have many fundraising events: school rewards through Stop & Shop, Amazon, Target, and Modell’s; we will sell MS67 t-shirts, food, and drinks for all school and PTA events; and we are looking into setting up Chipotle night, an ice skating event, and others fun fundraising activities. Randy would love to have your help, support, and suggestions! Please sign up to receive PTA info, and join us as volunteers. Randy is fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin.
Lidija Markes is the mother of a 7th grade daughter at MS 67. She is a strategic communications professional with a passion for digital content and past experience in fundraising and development. Her goal this year is to upgrade the PTA’s communication with the parents by managing the web site and establishing an active email list. Lidija is originally from Croatia which explains the pesky “j” in her name. (Yes, it’s pronounced just like Lydia.)
Olga Fridman is the parent of a MS67 rising 8th grader. She got involved in the PTA’s board as a volunteer coordinator by chance, but after a couple of fundraising events, she has realized that their success depends a great deal on parents’ involvement. She could share with you a very satisfying experience of helping 8th graders during “Picture day” or selling piece of pizza to hungry and excited 7th graders during a “Valentine’s Day” dance. Working full-time as a psychotherapist, she really appreciates time and commitment of a busy parent who also chooses to be part of her or his child’s school life. Olga is also fluent in Russian.
Christiana Moy is a proud parent of two children, with a son in the seventh grade at MS67 and a daughter in the fifth grade at PS203. She enjoys being active in children’s schools and feels that it is important that parents be involved with their children’s education in any way possible. She is an active PTA fundraising volunteer at her younger child’s school. Christiana is a product of the NYC public school system and believes that public schools provide an excellent education for our kids despite the challenges of overcrowding and limited funding. Parents should be advocates for their children’s education, and it is important that we maintain a voice in this community.
