Our First Grade classes are leading the charge to collect as many NEW PAJAMAS as we can through November for kids in need this holiday season. We are partnering with Scholastic, which will donate an age-appropriate book to go with every pair of pajamas to help make bed-time more comforting for kids in shelters and transitional housing.
Last year, we met our goal of 300 pairs of pajamas! What a great feeling! This year, so far we are not as close as we should be.
Stores such as Costco, Target and Children's Place have pajamas on sale for as little as $8 - $10 a pair. Please buy AT LEAST TWO PAIRS and send them into school with your child. Conway on Northern Blvd. in the Old Navy shopping center in Queens has pajamas for $5 and up. Infant to adult sizes are needed for babies, kids, and teens.
Please HAND IN the pajamas with your child with a note to their teacher asking that they be delivered to Ms. Zucknovich and the 1st Grade classes at 217. Kid who need a holiday gift will really appreciate it, and the students of 217 can feel good about helping out other kids at holiday time!
The deadline for sending in pajamas is December 1st, 2015.
