Yes we are! But that means the P.T.O.'s fundraising needs to aim high—tens of thousands of dollars high. And so we've launched online donation by credit card. Several reasons exist for you and your family to give to the P.T.O.:
- Budget cuts over several years has led to staff cuts.
- The school needs a librarian for our new library.
- Arts programs still need to be funded.
- Every grade needs to upgrade its classroom technology.
- The P.T.O.'s new status as a non-profit carries a few new costs.
- P.S. 9's neighborhood, school leaders, and high parent involvement give it a good chance to become one of Brooklyn's standout schools.
Please ask your extended families and network of friends to help make P.S. 9 one of the jewels in Prospect Heights, and in the New York City school system. Every property owner in Prospect Heights has an interest in P.S. 9 flourishing. Grandparents can help their grandchildren's school soar to new heights of excellence.
To donate by check or money order, please make checks payable to P.S. 9 P.T.O. and send to:
P.S. 9 P.T.O. c/o P.S. 9, 80 Underhill Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11238.
