Our Spring Carnival Is Almost Here!


Mark your calendar! The PS 198M Annual Spring Carnival is on:
Saturday, June 2, 2018
12 PM – 4 PM
This is a super-fun event for the whole family. Help make it a success! We need volunteers for the following:
  • Connect with neighborhood businesses and invite them to the carnival.
  • Invite vendors to participate by putting up a table at the carnival! It’s a great opportunity for vendors to support our school while also marketing their own business to more than a thousand potential new customers. Please have vendors fill out an application form and event policy agreement, which can be downloaded and printed here. Or click  here to register online.
  • Donate food or supplies; or help set up, clean up, or head up an activity or food booth. Click here.
For anyone who’d like to help out, please join our conference call on Tuesday, May 8, at 7PM. Email Mary Miele (mary@evolveded.com) to sign up.
Thanks for your support!

Coming soon: the PS 198 Student Showcase!


Don’t miss the PS 198 Student Showcase this week on Wednesday, May 16! For the first time ever, 28 of our 1st through 4th graders will be performing for seniors at the Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center at 415 East 93rd St —and all P.S. 198 families are invited! Expect a fast-paced evening, filled with fun skits, music, and dance. So please come and support our students as well as the seniors in our community. The show will take place from 5:30PM to 6:45PM, and the suggested donation is $2 per ticket. See you there!


It’s time for PS 198’s Read-a-thon!

It’s a school-wide reading activity!  It’s a fundraiser! Most of all, it’s a way to encourage our students to read more. Throughout March, our students will focus their efforts on increasing their independent-reading time in classrooms as well as at home.

Please encourage and support them!

To start, help your child create a read-a-thon page by clicking  here (use the secret code your child will receive in class).
