  • March of Dimes Charity Character Walk

    Please join the fight for the health of all moms and babies by supporting your child’s participation in March of Dimes’ WonderWalk fundraising event.  P.S.159’s WonderWalk will take place on Friday, October, 29th. 

    Together we can take on the critical issues facing families, fight for their health and make the country a more equitable place for everyone. Donations can be made on our school page Begin by clicking JOIN and create your child’s online fundraising page under the school’s team, shown above. You and your child can use that page to fundraise and earn a free, LIVE, virtual cooking class for raising $25 or more.  Your family is encouraged to start fundraising as soon as today and you can continue through November 30th.

    On Friday, October 29th students and staff are invited to parade around the schoolyard with their class in costume according to the schedule below. Costumes should be school appropriate. No weapons or scary masks are permitted. There will be stations set up in the school yard where classes can pose for pictures and receive their giveaways from the PTA. We will be scheduling each grade separately so that parents can be socially distanced while watching the parade. Please note that parents are not permitted inside the schoolyard. They can view the parade from the sidewalk outside the schoolyard fence on the 205th Street side as well as the Clearview Expressway side. For the safety of all of our families, staff, and students; all parents that are attending should wear masks. Donations to this charity are completely voluntary, all students will participate in the Character WonderWalk.
