My English Language Learners are learning a whole new language, culture, and history. In order to do this they need to learn about current events. These laptops would provide them with the means by which to research important topics like immigration, climate change, charter schools and New York City policies.

The PSC Annual Appeal 
Dear families and friends of Park Slope Collegiate,

 

We are so proud of the wonderful school we are building together here at Park Slope Collegiate. Ours is a close-knit community that supports a culture of learning in which students from diverse backgrounds are able to flourish intellectually, emotionally, and socially. 

 

Our dedicated teachers, staff, and parents are always bursting with ideas for enriching our children’s daily school lives, and a major part of the PTA’s mission is to turn our community’s great ideas into reality. 

 

But doing that requires the generosity of parents, families, and friends of Park Slope Collegiate. This is why we’re asking for your financial support in this year’s annual appeal.

 

With an increased budget, we can:

 

  • Offer students in every grade greater access to critical education resources, such as technology upgrades, library books, and other supplies. 

  • Expand our students’ horizons through field trips, team sports, clubs, after-school programs, and college preparation. 

  • Equip our teachers and staff with the supplies they need to create the most productive, inviting classrooms possible. 

 

In order to build a solid funding source for our students and teachers, our goal is for every Park Slope Collegiate family to donate to the annual appeal in whatever amount they can. Our suggested donation is $50 but any amount is welcome. 

 

All contributions are tax-deductible. Please return your donation with the enclosed form by Jan. 15, 2017. Checks and cash are both accepted. 

 

Your family’s participation in the annual appeal will make a measurable difference in expanding the educational opportunities available to our students. Feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or concerns you may have.

 

With our sincerest thanks,

 

The Park Slope Collegiate Parent Teacher Association

Estimadas familias y amigos de Park Slope Collegiate,

 

Nos sentimos muy orgullosos de la escuela maravillosa que estamos construyendo juntos aquí en Park Slope Collegiate. La nuestra es una comunidad muy unida que apoya una cultura de aprendizaje en el que estudiantes de diversas procedencias son capaces de florecer intelectualmente, emocionalmente y socialmente.

 

Nuestros dedicados maestros, personal y padres están siempre llenos con ideas para enriquecer la vida cotidiana de la escuela y de nuestros hijos, y la mayor parte de la misión de la PTA es convertir las buenas ideas de nuestra comunidad en realidad.

 

Pero eso requiere la generosidad de los padres, familias y amigos de Park Slope Collegiate. Por esta razón estamos pidiendo su apoyo financiero en este año.

 

Con un presupuesto mayor, podemos:

 

  • Ofrecerles a los estudiantes en cada grado mayor acceso a los recursos educativos críticos, como tecnología actualizada, libros para la biblioteca y otros suministros.

  • Ampliar horizontes de nuestros alumnos a través de excursiones, equipos de deportes, programas extraescolares y prepara-ción para la universidad.

  • Equipar a nuestros profesores y personal con los suministros que necesitan para crear aulas aun más productivas.

 

Con el fin de construir una fuente financiera sólida para nuestros alumnos y profesores, nuestro objetivo es que cada familia de Park Slope Collegiate done a la colecta anual en cualquier cantidad que posible. Nuestra sugerencia es de $50, pero cualquier cantidad es bienvenida.

 

Todas las contribuciones son deducibles de impuestos. Por favor devuelva su donación con el formulario adjunto antes del 15 de enero de 2017. Cheques y dinero en efectivo serán aceptados.

 

La participación de su familia en la colecta anual hará una diferencia apreciable en la expansión de las oportunidades educativas disponibles para nuestros alumnos. No dude en contactarnos con cualquier pregunta, sugerencia o inquietud que tenga.

 

Con nuestro más sincero agradecimiento,

 

La Asociacion de Padres y Maestros de Park Slope Collegiate
