WELCOME FROM THE PTA PRESIDENT
Dear PS/IS 187 Parents,
As the newly elected PTA president, I would like to welcome back returning students and families, and extend a warm welcome to the new 187 families joining us this year. The 2015-2016 school year at PS/IS 187 promises to be very exciting, so a heartfelt welcome to all!
For those of you who are new to our school, the PTA consists of parents, guardians and school faculty members, and is a highly effective and successful way to support our school. Each parent/guardian automatically becomes a member of the PTA once his/her child begins matriculating at PS/IS 187. As a member of the 187 community you will have the opportunity to show your support for the PTA by participating in the exciting events and programs that we have planned throughout the year. Whether you volunteer your time at a PTA sponsored event, or share your talent and skills to enhance our current programs – whatever level of participation you impart – please know your involvement is greatly appreciated.
I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage all parents/guardians to attend the monthly PTA general meetings. The PTA meetings are an excellent opportunity to learn about upcoming school events and fundraisers, meet fellow parents and school faculty members, and learn about PS/IS 187 educational programs in general. Our first meeting of the year will be held on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 in the school auditorium from 6:30pm-7:45pm. The PTA meetings are usually held on the 3rd or 4th Thursday of each month, but will vary depending on scheduled holidays. Please be sure to visit our website at www.187pta.org for the most up-to-date information. Free child care is provided.
Once again, welcome to PS/IS 187!
Isabelle C. Elton
