Congratulations on the first days of school and welcome to 282! See below for some clarifying and helpful information. Thank you to our PTO parents for welcoming new families and to our talented parents for creating the beautiful signage around the school on the first day.

(a) TODAY: FLOWER SALE at pick up. Flowers and herbs sold from our 282 garden. Buy a plant to bring home a piece of 282 to celebrate the first week of school.

(b) Monday, 9/9: Parent Meet and Greet in the 282 Garden after drop off.  Join us!

(c) See upcoming events at the end of this email...

(d) Air Conditioning: There was some miscommunication with the understanding about this work. The DOE has been in the school to update the wiring but not the actual units. The DOE has announced that all public schools will receive air conditioning by 2022. When we identify ways to advocate for our school to be one of the first for installation, we will let you know.

(e) NEW PTO Office: This year we have been given Room 126 as our new PTO office. We will spend the next month or so setting up the space. If you're interested in helping or donating items to help make the room beautiful and organized, respond to this message. Thanks!

Please complete this parent survey (CLICK HERE) so we can connect with you about opportunities to do important work for our school.

Attend the first PTO meeting on Wednesday, September 18 at 6 PM in the auditorium. Childcare will be provided!

282 is parent- and community-powered. We believe in shared leadership, feedback, and pitching in.  If you have ideas/events/programs PLEASE ALERT THE PTO before taking action so we can ensure there are no conflicts.

As you prep for back to school, buying school supplies for your kiddo and their teachers, here are a few ways you can help support P.S. 282
Make that hunt through the Lost & Found a little less painful by purchasing labels from Stuck on You. Use the code PS282PTO and the PTO will receive a portion of each purchase.

Make those dollars do more by using SmileAmazon to support PS 282. Choose PS282 as your charity. A percentage of your purchase comes back to the PTO. A super easy way to give back to 282! 
Did you know you can purchase items directly for the classroom? Teachers are always in need of supplies. From basics such as paper towels and Clorox wipes to more project specific items. The PTO is also always looking for a little help to do what we do. Head on over to the wishlist section of the PS 282 website and see if there is something you can purchase and spread the joy. Make your purchase through Amazon Smile and make those dollars do double duty! Items will be delivered to the recipient, no more lugging reams of printer paper with you to drop off.
Box Tops for Education is transitioning over to digital soon and we will send out a separate email with all the details, but in the meantime keep cutting and collecting. Get the kids involved.  Have them look for the box top logo on food products while you shop or cook. Clipped box tops can be dropped off in the PTO office.
9/6 - FLOWER SALE - Pick up something grown from our very own gardens to celebrate the first week of school!
9/12 - 1st Parent/Teacher Conference: The school hosts four Parent Teacher Conference dates each year. 
9/18 - First PTO MEETING
