Welcome to the second half of the school year! Your PTA supports the school not just through meetings and discussions, but more meaningfully through its yearly donation of $12,000 to the school. This year’s donation is in jeopardy! The PTA’s most lucrative fundraiser, Ice Cream Sales, has been dramatically reduced due to regulations. Since sales are reduced to once a month from twice a week as you can imagine a great SHORTFALL.

In order to make up this budget shortfall we ask that you support your PTA through a donation of $75 per family that will go toward supporting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) programs, all afterschool activities, clubs, sports, and student newspaper.

BONUS!! Anyone contributing to the membership drive by March 31st will be placed in a drawing for:

  • One of Two Certificates for group lessons valued at $250 at Top Prep, Great Neck
  • One of Three Certificates for two hours of one on one lessons at Top Prep, Great Neck for any subject!

Please return your donation addressed to the PTA. Checks should be made out to MS67 PTA. All contributions in any amount received in the PTA inbox by March 31st will be placed in the drawing.

Thank you to TOP Prep for supporting the PTA’s membership drive with their generous donation. https://www.topprepacademy.com/

PTA Campaña De Primavera Para Recaudar Fondos 2018-2019

Estimadas familias de MS 67,

¡Bienvenidos a la segunda mitad del año escolar!  El PTA apoya el colegio no solo con reuniones y discusiones, pero más significativamente con las donaciones anuales de $12,000 al colegio. ¡Las donaciones de este año están en peligro! La venta de helado lo cual es el evento que más fondos recauda ha sido reducido de manera dramática debido a regulaciones. Las ventas han sido reducidas a 1 vez al mes de 2 veces al mes, como se pueden imaginar esto a resultado en un DEFICIT.

Para poder compensar este perdido estamos pidiendo que apoyen el PTA con una donación de $75 por familia que será usado para apoyar el programa de STEAM (Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingeniería, Arte, Matemáticas) todas las actividades de cuidados después de colegio, clubes, deportes y el periódico estudiantil.

¡¡¡Bono!!! Cualquier persona que contribuya a la membresía antes del 31 de Marzo serán colocados en una rifa para:

Uno de Dos certificados para clases en grupo valorado en $250
O
Uno de tres Certificados para 2 horas de clase individual en Top Prep, Great Neck para cualquier materia.

 Por favor devuelva su donación dirigido al PTA. Cheques deben estar dirigidos a “MS67 PTA”. Todas las contribuciones recibidas en el buzón antes del 31 de Marzo serán incluidas en la rifa.

¡Mandemos nuestras contribuciones para llegar a la meta de $12,000 para el colegio!
