Dear PS 41 Parents:


Hello! We hope everyone has settled into the new school routines and new activities of this brand new schoolyear. October is busy and fun! Check out what’s going on in the school this month!


Ongoing – Enter the Labels for Education Sweepstakes online and help P.S. 41 win $500 or, if we’re lucky, a $10,000 Grand Prize! You can enter through noon on Oct. 9 with no purchase required at Entrants must be 13 years of age or older. First-time entrants will need to register and agree to the Labels for Education rules and privacy policy. Each entrant can enter an unlimited number of times each day.


Oct. 2Welcome Back Breakfast for Grades 3-5 (8:30am): Grades K-2 parents had their breakfast last month, this time it’s Grades 3-5 parents’ turn! This is a great opportunity to know fellow parents and PTA members. We eat bagels, drink coffee, and share ideas on how we can all get involved in the school and help our kids get an excellent education.


Oct. 7Walk to School Day: This Wednesday is National Walk to School Day. Students who walk all or part of the way to school that day (as well as students who use public transportation) will get a sticker as they arrive. We’ll tally up which class had the best participation and the class with the most walkers will win a special prize! Pledge forms will be going home in backpacks, but you can also get it on our website. Here’s the link to the Walk to school day 2015 pledge – FINAL.


Oct. 9Harvest Bake Sale: Friday is the annual Harvest Bake Sale. Please bring in your donations of cookies, cupcakes, and brownies on Friday morning and send your children to school with a few dollars for a special treat.


Oct. 12Columbus Day: It’s the only holiday in October – let’s enjoy it!


Oct. 14SLT Meeting (7:10am): The School Leadership Team meeting with the Principal, Mr. Ferrara, is open to any parent who wishes to listen in on a discussion about academic and curricular issues.


Oct. 15Fall Picture Day and PTA Meeting: Smile! Picture Day is Thursday – send your child to school in his/her favorite outfit! As usual, student portraits and class pictures will be taken and yearbook pictures will be taken of our Fifth Graders.


At 7pm, parents are encouraged to attend the October PTA Meeting where September Students of the Month will be honored. In addition, Fifth Grade parents interested in working on the Graduation Committee should also attend the meeting right before at 6pm.


Oct. 17 (Saturday)Fall Schoolyard Festival and Yard Sale (9am-4pm): Bring your friends and family! Cousins and neighbors too! This Saturday is the Fall Festival and Yard Sale in the PS 41 schoolyard. There are two ways to participate and help the school: (1) You can get a table and sell old toys, books, or other interesting items you might have. (2) Or you can just come, shop, and eat. There will be hot dogs, cotton candy, and popcorn for sale. Come and have fun! Bring a blanket and picnic on the grounds! This year, an FDNY Mobile Fire Safety Truck and an FDNY EMS CPR Demonstration Team will also be in the grounds to provide us with instructions on life-saving skills. How cool is that! PS 41 Yard Sale Flyer


Proceeds from this fund-raiser will fund art supplies for Ms. Cilla, the art teacher, who is planning major art projects with the kids this year. Parents donating items to be sold at the PTA table should drop them off by Friday, Oct. 16. For more information, please see the Fall Schoolyard Festival and Yard Sale flyer on the website.


Oct. 20Parent Math Night (6:30pm-8pm): Teachers representing each grade will present workshops on how they’re teaching math and how this instruction relates to the Common Core Learning Standards. There will be a separate room for each grade.


Oct. 24Rain date for Fall Schoolyard Festival and Yard Sale: Let’s hope we don’t have to think about this date!


Oct. 26Parent ELA Night (6:30pm-8pm): Similar to Parent Math Night, teachers will present workshops on how they’re teaching English Language Arts and how this instruction relates to the Common Core. Again, there will be a separate room for each grade.


Oct. 27Third Grade Theater Arts Show (7pm): It’s the first show of the year and it will be spookily fun!


Oct. 30Halloween Party (6:30-9:30pm): Come out in your scary costumes and join us for our annual PS 41 Halloween Party! There’s music and candy and dancing, so kids love this celebration! Look out for the flyer about tickets in your child’s backpack soon.


October is exciting at the school! And with the backdrop of the fall foliage at Crocheron Park, it’s beautiful, too. We hope you and your kids have a great month!

Best regards,
