Donations of baked goodies are appreciated; please send them in with your child in the morning.

Attention parents: PS41’s News & Views needs you! The quarterly PTA newsletter that chronicles life and events at PS41 needs volunteers to help produce the publication. Be a part of this fun project!

The Blackboard Awards for Schools and Principals are coming up. Nominate your school and/or principal for the 2014 Blackboard Award, but hurry, the deadline for your nomination is Nov 10th. Click here for details.

Don’t forget to return your Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF collections via personal check, money order or Coinstar receipts. This campaign was to introduce children to the idea that they can make a difference globally. See the flyer that came home with the little orange UNICEF trick-or-treat boxes.

The annual Penny Harvest has begun, please start collecting and bringing in those pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. See how we can make a difference by helping local charities.
