PS 99 is truly lucky to have such a caring community!

Some scenes from last night’s Bake Sale and Coat Fair. Thank you to all the parents and friends who brought in delicious baked goods, donated money and winter clothing to the effort!

Proceeds from the bake sale will be directed to help teachers’ classroom wish lists. We’ve distributed a good amount of clothing, and will send the left over gear to the local shelter.

We really appreciate everyone’s generosity, and are especially thankful for the parent volunteers who helped with setting up, selling, and cleaning up. PS 99 is truly lucky to have such a caring community!
