ITS THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR- SHOPPING FOR SUPPLIES

Every parent must be familiar with that school supply shopping commercial…

Parents overjoyed while gliding through the aisles on their shopping carts. Kids downtrodden and filled with malaise walking around the store. Both realizing that the summer months are clipping along.

Please find all the info you will need for that  It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year supply shopping moment.

We yearn for the sound of little voices in the hallways and hope everyone is having a safe and fantastic summer! (In case you were wondering…Class Assignment Letters will be mailed August 20th.)

See you September 4th!!!

PLEASE NOTE******FAMILIES WHO PURCHASED KITS FROM 1St DAY SCHOOL SUPPLIES BACK IN JUNE- Please see the extra blurb on your child’s individual class supply lists below. (There may be some specific items that are not included in your kits that you may need to get for the first day.)

Be sure and check the  Science, Art and the Coalition for the Homeless list as well for specific supplies needed.

Homelessness in New York City

Today, there are more children without homes in New York City than at any time since the Great Depression. Over the course of the last academic year, nearly 77,000 NYC school kids were homeless or living doubled-up with family or friends at some point. Tonight alone, more than 23,000 girls and boys will sleep in homeless shelters.

Project: Back to School

Project: Back to School aims to collect at least 3,000 new backpacks to fill with school supplies this year, which we will deliver directly to students living in New York City homeless shelters.

The instability and stigma faced by homeless children – who simply cannot afford basic items like pencils, erasers and rulers – can be devastating, and makes it difficult for them to keep up with their peers in school. By supporting Project: Back to School, you’ll help give these kids the tools they need to succeed in class.

We Need You! Monday or Tuesday or Both….

Monday between 9-1 a big truck is going to bring all the 1st Day School supplies

We need all hands on deck! If you live near Lower Lab and can help once the truck arrives, (Gina will let families know it is here) or the following day any time between 930-12:00 it would be very helpful.  Please email Gina at ggoodman@schools.nyc.gov if you can help out. Much appreciate!

Thanks!  It takes a village!

We are mailing all the placement letters tonight. Gina will be out of town tomorrow and Friday with limited access to phone or email.
