What's Happening at P.S. 247?

NYC Reads 365 challenges New Yorkers to read every single day. Read for pleasure, read to find out, read to argue, read to persuade, read to laugh, read to cry, read to understand, read to forget. Help us create a new generation of readers.
As part of the New York City Reads 365 initiative, our school was sent many wonderful books to get our students started. Posted outside the library are the reading lists for grades K-5. Stop by the library to check out our new books!
For more information, read the press release for 
NYC Reads 365.

Our student council did a beautiful job of putting together activity bags for children who are patients at Maimonides Children's Hospital. Mrs. Meyerson dropped off the character band-aids and the bags to the hospital. Thank you so much to all who participated!

Our school raised over $5,000 during Jump Rope for Heart this year.
We're so thankful to all of the students and staff that contributed!

Our top 3 star fundraisers are
Jack S. (2-319)
Evan C. (4-305)
Madison H. (5-417)

A Note from our Parent Coordinator

PS 247 is joining the Relay for Live movement on June 18, 2016 to raise funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. During a Relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they've overcome. Please join us with your support and donations towards a future without cancer. Send donations to Melissa Sheredos.

Each participant will have their name written on a Relay for Life footprint and will receive a breast cancer pencil.

The PTA at P.S. 247 will be holding our annual school auction on Friday, May 6th, at the Rex Manor. Tickets are $60 per person. While joining us for a fun-filled night of dinner and dancing, you will be supporting our students and school!
