Dear PS 188 Families,
 
One of our Kindergarten students, Kinsey Saleh, is very ill and needs our help.  From her YouCaring website:
 
Kinsey was recently diagnosed with end stage renal disease. Kinsey was a healthy, active, little 5 year old girl who suddenly developed this unimaginable, life threatening condition, which is extremely rare in children. She was hospitalized for over 2 weeks in January 2014, underwent a total of 4 surgeries, and suffered from a seizure among other complications. She takes numerous medications and daily shots to survive. She also follows a very restricted renal diet that prevents her from eating all of her favorite foods and retards her growth. She is currently on dialysis 3 times a week for 3 hours each session.
 
As a community, we can certainly help Kinsey and her family.  To find out how, please visit the following websites:

Please share the links above on your own social media sites to help spread the word of Kinsey’s needs and wonderful spirit.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
 
The PS 188 Community

Welcome to PS 188Q!

 The PS 188 Water Bottle Project  

water bottle project 2

Dear P.S. 188 Families,

Student Council is participating in the Wellspring for the World project.  The mission of Wellspring for the World is to provide safe drinking water for the people of the world. The project will raise money to provide safe drinking water for the people of Mali, Ghana, and other areas of the world.  The cost of a drinking well is $5000.  To help with this project, Student Council will be collecting 5 cent deposit plastic bottles (water, soda, etc.) and 5 cent cans (NO GLASS) to raise money to build water wells.   

The bottles will be collected in the gym and the art room. They will be collected until April 1st.

Sincerely,

PS 188 Student Council
