Black History Month has begun at PS 20. While we celebrate Black people year round, we spend February highlighting and celebrating the genius of African Americans. Next week is Black Lives Matter week. If you are interested in learning more about how we teach Black History month, read this article. Over the last few months we have seen an increase in families requesting clothes, toiletries, and food. Next week, we will begin collecting lightly used clothes, kids & adult, which can include shirts, pants, jackets, hats, gloves, new underwear or socks, and shoes (all sizes). If you have lightly used or new items at home that you would be willing to donate, there will be a donation box in the main lobby. In addition, some of our families do not have kitchens and are in need of premade meals that does not require reheating or food that does not require cooking like snacks, fruits, vegtables. Thank you in advance for supporting all our community members.

Support the PTA GiveButter Campaign to fund Interactive Whiteboards in all classrooms. All donations are tax deductible.

El Mes de la Historia Negra ha comenzado en PS 20. Mientras celebramos la comunidad negra durante todo el año, pasamos febrero destacando y celebrando el genio de los afroamericanos. La próxima semana es la semana de Black Lives Matter. Si está interesado en aprender más sobre cómo enseñamos a los negros Mes de la historia, lee este artículo. En los últimos meses hemos visto un aumento en las familias que solicitan ropa, artículos de tocador y alimentos. La próxima semana, comenzaremos a recolectar ropa ligeramente usada, niños y adultos, que puede incluir camisas, pantalones, chaquetas, gorros, guantes, ropa interior o calcetines nuevos y zapatos (todas las tallas). Si tiene artículos ligeramente usados ​​o nuevos en casa que estaría dispuesto a donar, habrá una caja de donaciones en el vestíbulo principal. Además, algunas de nuestras familias no tienen cocinas y necesitan comidas prefabricadas que no requieran recalentamiento o alimentos que no requieran cocción como refrigerios, frutas, verduras. Gracias de antemano por apoyar a todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad.
