Thank you to everyone who participated in the Parents Association Halloween Fundraiser!

There was a bake sale, carnival games, face painting and other fun Halloween games. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who decorated, ran the bake sale, oversaw the carnival games and activities, provided face painting and clean up. And thank you to Miller’s Ale House for their Famous Zinger contributions!

Support the PA Today!

Every parent with a student at PS 139Q is a member of the Parents’ Association (PA). The PA raises money through membership donations, candy and picture sales. In the past these funds have helped supply classroom materials, daily planners for the children in grades 3-5, student prizes such as ice cream parties, Butterfly Kits for the Kindergarten children and educational assemblies such as Seussical. We were also able to invite authors and artists to work with our children.

To ensure that our children receive the quality education that they deserve, we are asking you to make a generous donation to PS 139Q PA. All donations will go towards PS 139Q programs and the children of PS 139Q. We need your support to keep our programs alive! Whether you donate your time, or money, or both, you can help make this a great year for our kids. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated.

On behalf of the students of PS 139Q, we thank you for your support!
