School Spirit Day- Pajama Day

A Day to Believe in Winter Dreams

Dear PS 101K Parents/Guardians:

On Friday, December 22, 2017 we will be holding our annual Pajama Day celebration: A Day to Believe in Winter Dreams.  All students are encouraged to wear comfortable sleepwear to school for a fun-filled day as we engage in a school viewing of the popular, holiday inspired movie entitled, “The Polar Express”. Students will enjoy some warm treats, sponsored by our Parent Teacher Association and share in special times to ring in the New Year together.

Please be sure students come to school wearing comfortable and age appropriate sleep attire.

We would be happy to have all of our students to participate in this warm, cozy and exciting event.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact Ms. Bova, Ms. Nessas as part of our Little Lighthouse Team or our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at (347) 563-4680.

Sincerely,

Ms. Bova, Ms. Nessas, Little Lighthouse Team Liaisons

and the Little Lighthouse Team

Please bring your donations to the PTA room on December 8th, either during morning drop off or before 10:15am.
