National Walk to School Day (and More)

Dear P.S. 41 Families,

We hope all of you are settling in nicely to the new school year. Fall is really in the air now, and we have lots of activity on tap for October. The school calendar went home in backpacks last week, and you can always check out important dates online on our PS41 school calendar. (If you already use Google calendar, remember you can add the PS 41 calendar to yours, so you always have dates handy.)

Here’s what’s coming up:

This Wednesday is National Walk to School Day. This year we are partnering with the national organization, which is mobilizing millions of kids to use their feet instead of riding in cars for one day. Students who walk (all or part of the way) to school that day, or who ride the bus, will get a sticker as they arrive, and we’ll tally up which class had the best participation. The class with the most walkers will win a special prize! (Pledge forms will be going home in backpacks tomorrow, but you can also get it here on the site.)

OCT 10
Friday is the annual Harvest Bake Sale, featuring all kinds of baked goods (as well as alternatives for students who prefer non-edible treats). Please bring in your donations of baked good on Friday morning, and send your children in with a few dollars for a special treat. For more information, contact Julie Douveas (

OCT 13
Columbus Day – no school!

OCT 16
Picture Day – be sure to send your child in with the portrait order form filled out already.
It’s also the October PTA meeting, where we will honor September Students of the Month.
Fifth grade parents – if you’re interested in working on the graduation committee, please attend the first meeting at 6pm, just before the PTA meeting.

OCT 18
It’s the PTA yard sale! Save the date – flyers will go home in backpacks soon.

There’s a lot more coming up later in the month, so keep an eye on the calendar, and we’ll also send reminders.

See you at school!
From the PTA Executive Board
