  • Winter Clothing Drive. PS34 & D14

    Dear District 14 Families,

    New York City has always been the hub of immigration, with a history of welcoming a rich mosaic of diverse cultures and languages. As part of the city’s Project Open Arms, our schools have welcomed students and families seeking asylum. As the winter season approaches, these students and families will need coats, jackets, and warmer clothing.

    From October 31 to November 9, each school in our district will accept donations of new and clean gently used coats, jackets, sweaters, hats, gloves, jeans, t-shirts, etc. At this time of year when we give thanks for the abundance that we can share with our families, we must think of our District 14 family as well. As part of the District 14 family, we are asking you to please contribute as much or as little as you can. If you wish to donate, please drop off all donations at your school’s designated location and times listed below:

    PS 34 Oliver H Perry Elementary School drop off in the Main Office.  Students can also drop off items in the cafeteria in the morning during drop off.

    Thank you for your compassion and generosity.

     Respectfully, The District 14 Team

  • PTA Pledge Drive

     

    Hello PS 34 Families!

    On behalf of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Executive Board, we welcome you to the 2022-23 school year! The PTA serves as a liaison between the parent body of PS 34, and our amazing teachers and administrators. We strive to ensure the very best learning environment for all our children.

    Last school year, with the generous support from families and friends of PS 34, the PTA pledge drive raised over $34,000. This amount funded many activities and enrichments for this year such as Dance with Marquis Studios, Lego Robotics, Art with Eckford Street Studio for Pre-K, and supplies for teachers. Participating in enrichment programs helps children expand their critical thinking skills, synthesize information in new ways and develop confidence in their own choices. The pledge drive and funds raised this year will go directly to enrichments for our students in the coming 2023-2024 school year.

    The PTA typically spends over $200 per child annually to fund enrichments and support our teachers and school. Our goal is to have 100% of our families participating in the Pledge Drive. This year we are still hoping to get 100% participation but are asking families to give an amount that they are comfortable donating. Each donation, no matter how small, makes a difference and helps us reach our goal. Not only does every contribution add up, but when the PTA applies for grants, potential funders want to see a community that is committed and invested in their children’s education. The PS 34 PTA is a 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax deductible. We encourage you to give any amount that is right for your family.

    As an added incentive, the three classes with the highest participation will be rewarded with a popsicle party!

    Please return the bottom of the form in your child’s folder between October 10th and 21st to make your donation. We thank you for giving as generously as you can!
    (See attached form)

    With sincere gratitude,
    Your PTA Executive Board President: Julia Kotowski, Co-Secretaries: Lilith Dollard & Molly Gillioti, Co-Treasurers: Brian Binsack & Jolie Ruhe

WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are looking for items for our Winter Auction, which will run from Friday, December 2nd, 2022 through Sunday, December 11th, 2022. The Winter Auction is an incredible way to support our school while also connecting with and publicizing local businesses - a win-win for the community and our students!

We would gratefully accept any donations from the following categories:

● Health and Beauty

● Hotels and Travel


All donors receive exposure to the over 400 families in our school community. PS 34 families love to patronize businesses that support us! We feature your logo and the link to your website on our Auction website, which is also shared with thousands of North Brooklyn families through various social media channels. The P.S. 34 Oliver H. Perry PTA, Inc. is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted under the law.

Don’t have a small business and still want to get involved? The Fundraising Committee would love your support! To make this a successful event, we solicit donations from hundreds of local organizations. We’d love your voice and time in helping solicit local businesses that you frequent or are in your part of the neighborhood. No donation is too small!
