Thank you to our Class Parents, Specialist teachers, clerks and Nurse Brennan for all the time, effort and money they put into decorating cars for our 4th annual Trunk or Treat. Our students had an amazing time and it looked like the adults had the most fun! We are beyond appreciative to the PS16 community for everything you do to make memories for our children.
This year the competition among the grade levels was fierce and our secret panel of judges had a hard time picking the winner. The winning grade will be receiving an ice cream truck treat in the near future! The winning grade is revealed here:
We are so excited to finally be able to share information about our After School Enrichment Clubs!! We know how much our students benefit from the enrichment opportunities at PS16 each year. Our parent council has worked with our teachers to create a program filled with a multitude of fun learning activities. Classes will begin on Monday October 2nd and run for 7 weeks.
Uniform Orders are now OPEN online. Orders placed before Friday September 15th will arrive home in childs backpack on Friday 09/15 or Monday 09/18. We will temporarily close online orders on September 15th while we process and deliver orders.
**FUNDRAISER FOR THE AISHA KHAN LIBRARY AT PS16*** – We are selling heavy duty drawstrings bags with school logo- perfect for swim and field trips! These bags were kindly donated by the Khan Family and CPA team have decided to sell as a fundraiser for new books for the library. They are expensive at $10 but all proceeds will go directly to the library. We have currently sold 15! Bags can be purchased HERE

Cash only. Online sales will resume mid-September. We are happy to report that we are fully stocked on all items!!

As you all may be aware, the courtyard that your children play in during recess desperately needs a padded surface. The children have a wonderful time out there, but they do receive their fair share of skinned knees and elbows. We would love to provide your children with a much safer surface to play on. We can do it, but we need your help. In speaking with the vendor, the padded surface for the courtyard will cost $32,000. To help defray the cost, we are kindly asking each family for a donation towards purchase of the materials and installation. We know that it may be asking a lot, but it’s a great way to give a long-lasting gift to your children, and the children of the future. We are asking that all contributions be made by October 21st, 2022, so that installation can begin before the cold weather. We are hoping to have enough raised to begin work on November 1st. Thank you so much for your time and consideration as we work together to ensure the safety of our children.
We have temporarily paused online uniform orders while we prepare for order collections next week. Online sales will resume on Friday September 9th and any orders placed then will arrive home in your child’s backpack.
Online order collection will be held this coming Tuesday, September 6th, from 1pm to 3pm, in the courtyard next to the main building. Our team of volunteers, including many of our PS16 alumni who have moved on to middle school, will be on hand to assist you. We ask that you do extend some patience to our young volunteers working hard to gain community service. If you are unable to collect your order on Tuesday we will send it home with your child on Thursday.
In order to make the collection process faster please have your ORDER NUMBER. This can be found in the confirmation email you received when you placed your order. Print outs are not necessary, but it would be really helpful if you arrive with your order number written on a piece of paper. We are recommending that you arrive during your designated time slot based on order numbers.
1pm – #6436 through #6530
1:30pm – #6531 through #6590
2pm – #6591 through #6659
2:30pm – #6660 through #6733
We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
We do plan to hold an in-person uniform sale on Wednesday September 7th. We are expecting a delivery from our suppliers on Tuesday. On Tuesday evening we will send an email with an inventory update.
