Contributions for Ms. Niemis

Important News
As many of you may have heard, a member of the PS41 family suffered a heartbreaking loss last week. One of our new third-grade teachers, Ms. Niemis, lost her husband very suddenly, at age 37. The family has four young children, ages 18 months to 11 years. Class 3-104 is taking up a collection from her students as a gesture of support. Families with children in other classes have asked how they can help – if you’d like to contribute to the class collection, please put a cash contribution in an envelope addressed to Donna Evangelista, with your family name and your child’s name and class on the outside, and send it in with your child.

Some of the young couple’s friends have started a memorial fund to get the family through the difficult days ahead. If you would like to donate to the family that way, here’s the link:

The family is well loved in their community, which has stepped up admirably to take care of meals for the coming weeks. A friend is coordinating the schedule through, and they are well covered for now. If you’d like to see the schedule or offer to participate in the future, you can see the meal calendar here:

Ms. Niemis’s class is being covered by excellent substitutes, including Mrs. Miller, so the students are in good hands during what is sure to be a confusing time for everyone. All of our hearts go out to this young family during this terrible time.
