Every year Mr. Bender carefully selects a book for each month of the school year. These books are always connected by a particular theme which changes from year to year. This year’s theme  is really powerful, but we aren’t going to tell you what it is just yet.

At the end of each month, we will share the Book of the Month with you in the hopes you will discuss it further with your children. And while you’re at it, see if you can figure out Mr. Bender’s theme! 

Check out what we've read so far! With November's Book of the Month we have included some easy and fun ways for your children to spread kinds around the community and the world.

Free Online Parenting Course Exclusively for PS11 Families

Does your child think more than talk? Show great focus while working alone but become inhibited in front of big groups? Talk freely one-on-one but is reluctant to participate in class discussions? Appear shy but is bursting with creativity and passion? If this sounds like your child, we have a great resource for you! 

We are thrilled to announce that through our partnership with Susan Cain's Quiet School Network, all PS11 families will be able to take a Parenting Quiet Kids Online Course for free!  
To register and learn more please see this flyer!

The PS11 Lost and Found team and LabelDaddy.com are joining forces to help you keep tabs on your kids clothes and raise money for the PTA: a win-win situation. 

LabelDaddy.com will make a donation to the PTA for 25% of each purchase made on their website using the promo code "PS11" at checkout. 

This code can be used by friends, family and everybody you can think of to help support this fundraiser. 
We will be sending home flyers in backpacks announcing the start of this program, that will be ongoing throughout the year. But now is an especially important time to label your kids stuff and help us minimize the Lost and Found 'unclaimed' pile... because Winter is coming and "it's cheaper to buy labels from LabelDaddy.com than it is to have to buy a new coat!!!"

We will also create a link to LabelDaddy.com on the PS11 website. They have hundreds of colors and styles with customized and washable peel and stick labels. Just remember to use the code "PS11" when making your purchase.
