June-September Summer Reading Challenge




Just before school, we invite new and existing PS29 families to get together in the school yard. This informal meet-up allows children to reconnect after the summer and for new kids to meet and get ready for their first year at PS29. We will have PS29 merch for sale and tie dying available. Bring other things to do – chalk, sport balls,  jump ropes and a water bottle!



Each September we host a family Movie Night in the school yard. Bring blankets and chairs and grab your spot. The event is free but we offer a concession stand with treats and drinks.



29 Cheers is the first event of the school year just for grown-ups! This event is held on a weeknight in the fall at a few local restaurants. There will be suggested venues for each grade. It’s a wonderful way to meet new folks and catch up with old friends!  



The Rummage Sale is a favorite event for the entire neighborhood! PS29 families and community members can bring electronics, textiles, and clothing to the PS29 Schoolyard on Baltic Street. Clothing and shoes are offered for sale at just $2!

Everything collected will be: Re-used, Re-purposed, or Recycled. Electronics will be collected by 4thBin to be recycled. Unsold clothing and textiles will be recycled by Wearable Collections. Stained & ripped clothing and textiles welcome (to recycle not to sell.) No books or toys please. Textiles & shoes only. Items can be dropped off anytime between 10:30 am and 3 pm on the day of the event. 



Possibly the cutest day of the year! This is a great event to volunteer for; it’s busy and fun and you can schedule your volunteer time when your kiddo has their session. Irvin Simon takes class and individual student photos. Your photo purchases raise money for the school.  



PS 29’s Sweetest event - Eat Pie & Shop - is a fabulous holiday event in December that seems to get better each year! This event includes a holiday market for both kids and adults, a pie contest, professional portraits, and crafts and games. And of course you get to eat pie! Stay tuned for more details and volunteer sign ups. 



What is Super  Science Saturday? It is a Saturday in March when PS29 is transformed into our very own hands-on science museum. A day when our kids see that science is the coolest. A day collaboratively conceptualized and planned by PS29 parents and our science teachers, Tina Reres and Molly Dubow. Most importantly, it’s a day when kids and their caregivers celebrate the love of learning something new, together.  Children  can  participate  in workshops,  explore  science  concepts  and  watch demonstrations  that  illustrate  science concepts  we  all  know and  love. This day requires lots of hands-on volunteers. Check out our website for more information, volunteer sign ups, and tickets. Questions? Feel free to email us at


Join us for this super fun party and biggest fundraiser of the year! Enjoy drinks, food, dancing and participate in the silent auction; it’s supremely fun and a great night out (adults only.) Bidding is online and starts a few weeks before the event; this means grandparents, neighbors and friends can also bid on items! Stay tuned for more information and ways to help. 



The PS 29 Block Party is held in the PS 29 school yard in May or  June each year. This incredible event is fun for the whole family and open to the entire community! Like an old fashioned carnival - enjoy food, games, bouncy houses, arts and crafts activities and the biggest hits – face painting and hair coloring! Planning starts early and the event’s success is entirely dependent on great volunteers. We hope you like cotton candy! 


This summer fundraiser is a contest to help make reading fun. Students keep track of the number of minutes they read and ask friends and family to sponsor their reading. Kids who log at least 30 minutes or more of reading over the summer, will be invited to a fall pizza party and will earn a certificate and small prize! Details are sent home in your child’s backpack in June.
