2017 Holiday Fair

Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of November 27, 2017

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

One of our biggest fundraisers of the year, the Holiday Fair is quickly approaching; it is an event for the whole family (and it makes a great playdate).  There are many ways to participate in this event and support our school.  Please look out for opportunities to volunteer... to set up, work a booth the day of, or clean-up.  I hope you will join the fun and support our many PTA funded projects including our arts programs, camp for our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders and teaching assistants in our early childhood classrooms, just to name a few!  The Holiday Fair is Sunday, December 10th from 11AM - 5PM.

Mark Your Calendars:

  • The Museum of Impact training for volunteers is Monday at 8:35AM in the PTA Room.  

  • SING is Wednesday at 8:45AM in the auditorium.  Please also join us for the bake sale in the lobby beforehand (also, this is a call for donated baked goods).

  • Friday is a half-day.  Dismissal is at 11:45AM.  

  • Friday is the deadline for submitting Middle School Applications to Noemi.  

  • The Museum of Impact is Saturday, December 2 from 1 - 4PM.  The Museum of Impact creates immersive experiential voyages into the heart of social movements; Visitors participate with all senses and leave their own mark.  Installations and accompanying art offers a multiplicity of avenues allowing for individual and collective reactions, and help participants adopt concrete ideas for effecting change.  Please join us and bring your friends!


Have a wonderful week,

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.
