Red Communication Folders
All students have a red communication folder with a PS11 logo that goes home with them every night and returns to school with them every morning. The folders will hold important notices for families and may serve as a vehicle to return notes or permission slips to teachers. It is imperative that parents check the folders each night and return them to school daily in their child's backpack. Parents will be responsible for replacing lost, misplaced or damaged folders.
PTA general meetings, usually held on the third Wednesday of every month, are a great way to keep on top of important PS11 news including PTA events, DOE initiatives and school-wide programs. Regular speakers include Principal Wrighton, PTA executive board members and committee chairs. Parents are encouraged to get involved, ask questions, voice their opinions and volunteer new ideas for fundraising and community building. Check the calendar on our website home page to stay current on PTA meeting schedules.
The PS11 PTA listserve is an email-based communication group that serves members of the school community. The listserve is used for discussion of general school issues. All posts must be respectful and should adhere to the rules of internet etiquette. Only school staff, parents and caregivers of PS11 students may join and post to the list serve. To join, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Include your name, your child(ren)'s name, and your child(ren)'s teacher. Requests will not be processed without this information.
We have set up a system of parent volunteers to help facilitate lunch and recess. Each grade has a rep who schedules the volunteers on a monthly basis. Parent volunteers are needed daily - one parent per class. The lunch/recess period for grades K-1 is 11:10-12:10 and for grades 2-5 is 12:15-1:15. The DOE has approved PS11 for a salad bar, which is available during Friday lunch periods. Parent volunteers are needed to help manage the salad bar during these hours. Parent involvement is necessary to keep and hopefully expand this healthy food option for our kids. Please think about volunteering for at least one day per month. Everyone's help is needed a few times during the school year. Check our website home page for volunteer opportunities.
The PS11 website is located at www.ps11brooklyn.org and contains information about the school, the PTA and School Leadership Team. The website also holds the school calendar listing all yearly school events, tests, breaks and holidays. Contact the web master at email@example.com.
