Cyber Monday / Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Thanksgiving and Black Friday are already just a blurry tryptophan memory, and Cyber Monday is one click away. While you’re thinking about gift giving, remember the following ways to shop to support TNS:

Cyber Monday - THREE WAYS TO SHOP for TNS:

1) MightyNest

2) Emily Press Labels

3) AmazonSmile

1) MightyNest - MightyNest donates up to 15% of every purchase to schools. Check out their healthy, safe products for the home.

2) Emily Press Labels - Emily Press Labels donates 20% of sales when you or your friends and family shop through our special shopping link. Support our fundraiser, help keep belongings out of the Lost & Found, and hang-on to your kid’s stuff!  (we’re also working on a Mabel Labels fundraiser--stay tuned!)

3) AmazonSmile - Amazon will donate a percentage (.05) to TNS every time you shop through the Amazon Smile site.

Sign-up so all your purchases count towards a donation to the school. First, designated “Parent Teacher Association Of The Neighborhood School Inc” as your charity of choice and be sure to use smile.amazon.com every time you shop.



Let’s also remember the most important day... the one that embodies the true spirit of this time of year: Giving Tuesday. This is a global celebration of philanthropy on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Please consider including TNS in your holiday giving this year. The PTA’s suggested donation is $550 per student, but we will gladly accept whatever amount your family is able to give. Not only will your donation support your child’s education and sustain vital school programming but also all donations are 100% tax deductible.

1) Cash/Check - Make checks payable to “The Neighborhood School PTA.” Deliver to the office or mail to 121 East 3rd Street, NY, NY 10009

2) Paypal Visit tnsny.org/docs/contribute and click on the button to create a recurring donation or one-time contribution. You may also donate directly from thePayPal site using the handle treasurer@tnsny.org.

3)Fee-Free Transfer of funds - Look for a PTA volunteer in the lobby on Wednesday or email treasurer@tnsny.org. We will then email an invoicethat allows you to make a Fee-Free Transfer directly from your checking/savings account.

4) Friends and Family Donations - Please ask relatives to support our school. As always, all donations are fully tax deductible, even for non-TNS parents.

5) Corporate Match - Many businesses match their employees’ charitable contributions. The PTA’s Co-Treasurers can assist in providing you with the information you need for a corporate match.

Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of November 20, 2017

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

It finally feels like Fall.  Please make sure your child has all the necessary accessories (hat, scarf, mittens and coat) to stay warm and active; it’s important children come to school prepared to play outside as temperatures drop.   Missing something?  Check our “Lost and Found” next to security.

Mark Your Calendars:

  • The Diversity Committee meets Tuesday at drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • There is no school Thursday and Friday this week.

Whatever family traditions you honor this weekend, enjoy the long and very well deserved break with your children.  I hope that it feels restful and rejuvenating.  

Much Love,

The Museum of Impact Visits TNS on Saturday, Dec 2

Museum of Impact

Our school will be working with the Museum of Impact to stage a unique social action exhibit celebrating upStanders in our community! Together we can raise our voices to combat hate speech, to support LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter, to make a significant impact on issues affecting every single one of us.

Action: Who are your upstanders - people who have inspired you to affect change? Post in the comments below and we will send in your suggestions to have the Museum of Impact create visual representation of our collective heroes.

This event is open to current families and friends and neighbors. Please share this event with the broader community.
