Sign up for the PS 198 Student Showcase!


Show off your talents and help our community at the same time!

On Wednesday, May 16, PS 198 will be putting on our first-ever Student Showcase for the seniors at the Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center at 415 East 93rd St. Does your son  have a favorite song he wants to perform? Does your daughter want to show off her dance moves? Her latest poem? Her gift for stand-up comedy? This is their chance. Parents can get involved, too–by volunteering to organize the show, purchasing an ad in the program, or making a donation. Best part is, you and your kids will  be connecting with our community and showing seniors a fun time!

So encourage your kids to get some friends together and sign up now! Click here for details and to download and print out the sign-up sheet. Please submit to the PTA office by Monday, April 16. Break a leg!


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).
