    2018/2019 School Supplies

    Q300 Parent-Teacher Association has teamed up with Mülee to offer you a discounted package that contains all the school supplies requested by your teacher for the first day of school for Fall 2018.

     

     

    Each year, Q300 makes a request to all families that they provide school supplies from a grade-specific list. In Q300’s first year, families found it time-consuming and insufficient to individually search for items on that list and deliver those items to school. Since then, we have worked with Mülee to develop a one-stop website where parents can purchase all the items on the list with a few clicks of a computer mouse and have them delivered directly to the school.

    To participate in the program, please do the following:

    1.Please order the school supplies at the following website: www.themulee.com

    2. Click on the “Order Now” tab and enter Q300’s school code: 8502.

    3. Select and purchase the school supplies package based on your child’s entering grade for 2018-2019 academic year.

    4. Order must be made by Thursday, June 28, 2018.

    In early September, each student will receive a custom packed cardboard “briefcase,” containing all the school supplies requested by your teacher.

    While participation this program is not mandatory, we have found this to be a wonderful way to save time, effort and money and have one less thing to worry about in those first few days of school next September!

    Summer Read-a-Thon & Online Book Fair

     

    Your kids are gonna read their heads off this summer! The class with the highest level of participation wins a pizza party for the whole grade. This year it's even better because we've brought back the Online Book Fair as an added benefit to help raise money for enrichment programs for our children. But the Online Book Fair only lasts for a short time starting June 4 and ending June 18. Find out the details.

    Upcoming Events

        Winter Auction for Summer Fun.  Now through March 1st.   Does your kid love mythology?  Soccer?  Gymnastics?  Coding?  We have several summer camp opportunities related to these themes (as well as a Pennsylvania Farm House rental) that are being auctioned from now until March 1, 2018 on an online link!!  All proceeds go to the Q300 PTA and help fund enrichment and other needed items. Anyone can bid, so please share these with friends and family!  (Camps are in several boroughs and even a sleep-away one).  Summer Camp Auction

         Annual Zumba-thon with PS 17, Mar. 9th, 5:30 pm at PS 17 campus.  Save the date for and get ready to move at our 3rd annual Zumba-thon!  There are two ways to sign up.  You can create an online platform here to get pledges and share via email and social media:  Zumba-thon Sign Up!.  Or, if you are old school, you can get paper sheet pledges (to be sent in kids’ backpacks and via google group). And, if you don’t like to dance, you can participate by helping “thon-ers” raise money but sharing their online pledge sheets!  Kids can also participate (with parent/guardian there) though it is more geared to adults! Last year, we not only had a blast but we also raised almost $4,000 (split between the schools)!  Let’s exceed that goal this year!
