Deadline Extended: Discounted Tickets to ‘Twas Night Before…Cirque du Soleil

Get your tickets to the Winter PTA Fundraiser and Fun Event – ‘Twas Night Before Cirque du Soleil event at MSG NOW!  

On the evening of December 14th, many will ride the LIRR Polar Express into the Madison Square Garden Theater, NYC to see ‘Twas The Night Before… by cirque du soleil. This adventure is not a supervised event nor considered a school event, but rather a fun wholesome family event. It will follow the Douglaston Village Winter Festival that takes place that afternoon at the Douglaston Station Plaza (next to the LIRR Station). We have 63 tickets on hold with LIRR daily r/t tickets included in this purchase.

Please get your ticket requests in by Friday, October 25th to secure your transportation/theater tickets as once these seats are sold, we cannot guarantee additional accommodations. Theater tickets are located in section 202, rows x-z. This is a small theater and there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. It is a day that will get you in the holiday spirit for sure!

Please see the flyer HERE for more information and ticket purchase form.

Senior Trip Information Session

Dear 8th Grade Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Referring to my previous letter dated September 10th, since the Washington D.C. senior trip is an overnight, out of the city trip, parents/guardians who are interested in having their child attend must participate in a mandatory information session. For your convenience, one early morning and one evening session was available to choose from.

We will offer one final session on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 at 9 AM in our school auditorium. If a parent or guardian did not attend any one of the information sessions, your child will not be able to attend this trip.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (718) 423-8138 or by email at Tlampoutis@schools.nyc.gov.

Sincerely,
