Last Call for Penny Harvest!

The last day to collect pennies for our Annual Penny Harvest is Monday, December 1, 2014! 

Here is a little more information about our Annual Penny Harvest from our PS 188 Student Council:

P.S. 188’s goal is to collect 25 thirty pound bags of pennies.  We are collecting pennies to help people in need and help solve problems in the community.  Every dollar and cent of Penny Harvest is allocated by our students for grants and service projects.  In the past, P.S. 188 has donated to organizations such as Windsor Park Library, Our Lady of Lourdes Food Pantry, Patriot Paws, 911 Memorial, Ronald McDonald House of New Hyde Park, and North Shore Animal League.

We need your help to have a successful Penny Harvest.  If you want more information about Penny Harvest, please visit www.PennyHarvest.org.  Thank you for your ongoing support.  Happy Harvesting!!!

Send in your Holiday Cards!

We would like to display family holiday photo cards again this year in the lobbies of our annex and main building!  If you have a holiday photo card or a family photo you would like to display in the lobby, please be sure to send it to school with your child in the month of December.  We will tape them on the walls in the main lobbies.  In past years, the children enjoyed seeing their family pictures.  We are excited to continue this tradition.  Please note that photographs will not be returned.  If you have any questions, please let us know.
