What an exciting Fall so far! The PTA would like to take a moment to thank all of you who volunteered during our many events this fall. A hearty thank you to the parents who donated their time and/or resources to the Dues Drive, Movie Night, Book Fair, Picture Day and Community Dinner.

We are also grateful to these local restaurants for supporting our school with their wonderful food! Remember their generosity when you are going out to eat or ordering in!

We could not do it without you.

Every year PSMS 278 students and teachers solicit pledges from the community and then walk the track at the Lawrence A. Wien Stadium at Columbia University. This year the students walked on Thursday, October 12

Please support your student with a pledge for their walk.

Our goal is $20K. We need this money in order to fund:

  • 92nd Street Y dance (formerly funded by DOE)
  • Elementary school choir
  • Middle School Choir

Turn in Donations by Thursday, December 7!

All donations are tax deductible and go right back to the kids at PS/MS 278

The highest dollar amount in pledges in grades K-8 will win a Nintendo Switch. The second place student for grades K-5 will win a $50 Target gift card

The second place student for grades 6-8 will win a $50 Target gift card.

The classes with the highest number of contributions in grades K-5 will win a school pizza party

The classes with the highest number of contributions in grades 6-8 will win a school pizza party

And everyone will receive a no-uniform pass for every $75 earned.

Three easy ways to collect pledges:

  1. Send cash or check (payable to PTA of PSMS278) in with your student and their completed fundraising form (sent home in back packs)
  2. Fulfill your pledges through our online payment portal. Simply add your student’s name in the “In Honor of” field and Designate your donation to “Arts Walk” (example below)                                         donate-snip
