The Walkathon is an awesome PS199 day and our SECOND largest fundraiser. All funds raised through registration fees, donations and sponsors from friends and families enables the PTA to support Ms. Xerri and our teachers in creating a great learning environment for our children.
The PTA plays a critical role in filling the gap created by a reduced education budgets. Your support is instrumental in providing our teachers and children with additional resources and programming that help our school thrive.
Sponsoring a student is a great way to support PS 199. All money goes to the PTA which funds the science teacher, arts enrichment programs in every grade, the hugely popular recess sports program, the Wellness in the School program that is bringing healthier food into our Cafeteria and pays for the classroom supplies that our kids use everyday.
