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!

This is an admittedly busy time for our school and your families but everyone on the Executive Board is excited to see how our community continues to rise to the challenge.
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:
- Send cash or check (payable to PTA of PSMS278) in with your student and their completed fundraising form (sent home in back packs)
- 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)
- Create your own personal crowdrise page to share with friends and family members via email and social media.
Pledges of any amount are welcome!
Please Note: All donations must be collected by December 7 to be eligible for prizes.
It’s September and your annual PTA membership dues are due! PTA Membership dues help pay for school enrichment and afterschool actives! Our Dues Drive letters were sent home in the backpacks today.
