SCHOOL NEWS AND ANNOUCEMENTS

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
PS89 encourages parents, family members and friends to collect Box Tops. Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Mott's®, Yoplait®,  Nature Valley®, Ziploc® and  Kleenex®  in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip, trim and send them into school with your child - a Box Tops box is located at the security front desk. Each Box Top is worth 10¢ for PS89. You can find a list of participating products at btfe.com. Thank You for supporting our school!

SQUARE 1 ART
Square 1 Art stickers and order forms will be sent home in red folders this week. Please place your orders generously and promptly. All merchandise will arrive in time for the holidays.

PS89 FACEBOOK PAGE
The PS 89 Facebook page is now active! Please ‘Like’ the page and make sure to set it as ‘See First’ in your News Feed to ensure that you get all the updates/news/events on the page.

LOST AND FOUND
If your child loses anything at school, please check the Lost and Found in the cafeteria.

ANNUAL APPEAL
Our goal is to receive a donation of any size from 100% of PS89 families. Combining last year's PTA expenses and the sizable grant it gave to PS89, the PTA spent over $1,400 per child. Please consider donating that amount to the Annual Appeal to ensure that we can continue funding to the extent we have in previous years. However, please remember that no donation is too small. 

To make your Annual Appeal donation, send a check made out to the PS89 PTA in your child's folder. Remember, the PS89 PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law and are eligible for corporate matching. You can go to corporatematching.org to find out if your company will match your donation.

If you need the school's EIN# please send an email to Team Treasurer:
Stacy Francis:  Stacy@francisfinancial.com
Amy Hughey:  amymhughey@gmail.com
Cristina Marzo: cristinamarzof@gmail.com

AMAZON MATCHING
Please support PS89 students when shopping on Amazon by going to smile.amazon.com and designating PS89. Up to 0.5% of your purchases will be donated back to the school.
