June 1 Fair for the Arts:
First, a big thank you to everyone who bid on Silent Auction items or came to the party at The Slope Lounge on Saturday night. Thanks to your generosity, we raised approximately $12,000 for 282!
But our fundraising isn't done yet--on Saturday, June 1 we will hold a Fair for the Arts from 11 am to 2 pm, featuring music, games, sports, food, and fun for 282 families and community friends of all ages!
School events like the Auction and Fair for the Arts are entirely parent-run and parent-staffed. Did you know that the money raised pays for valuable enrichment experiences like the Tiny Scientist and our Brooklyn Conservatory of the Arts music program as well as other PTO initiatives like reimbursements to teachers? You can sign up to make something, bake something, volunteer or donate. Commitments vary from only 1 hour or the entire fair based on your availability! Don't feel like being around kids on a Saturday? Volunteer to set up or clean up!
Please sign up to volunteer now! We need your help to make this day a success!
How to Volunteer:
Saturday, June 1, 2019, 11 AM - 2 PM
@ PS 282 (In the school yard, unless it rains, in which case entrance will be at the base of the Berkeley Place ramp by the Pre-K playground)
Can you help run the fair on June 1? Hurry... sign up for the slot you want!
Please sign up to help at the bake sale, be a ticket seller or get creative with kids at a craft table. Volunteer slots are only an hour so you can also attend the fair (but you can sign up for as many slots as you’d like!)

You can also find the sign up link on the 282 website!
Help us Prep in Advance:
We are collecting cardboard egg cartons for the craft table. Instead of recycling yours, please drop them off at the PTO office so we can up-cycle it into spring art!
Attend or Donate:
Don’t have a minute to spare? Come to the fair and support your school. Let your neighbors and Brooklyn friends know about it, and invite them along. Admission is a suggested $10 donation, and all the money raised pays for valuable enrichment experiences like Tiny Scientist and music, as well as providing classrooms with educational software and supplies. Ticket pre-sales will be announced in advance and sold closer to the event date.

Thanks, and hope to see you there on June 1!
