PROJECT CICERO: USED BOOK DRIVE

Need to make room on your child's book shelf?

Please consider keeping your gently used books until early March for the PROJECT CICERO book drive to be held at MS 54!  These books will be contributed to the classrooms and libraries of children in under-resourced New York City schools.

If you'd like to help with the drive please click here to email Lauri Scharankov.

FUNDRAISE WITH FAIRWAY!

With the Fairway Community Partners program, for every dollar you spend at Fairway, 3% will be donated back to MS54 to support the school!

This is an amazingly easy way for MS54 to earn money for our school!  All you have to do is remember to use the card distributed to your student when you shop at Fairway!


If you did not receive a Fairway Community Partners card, or if you need a replacement, contact Anne Pejovich, Parent Coordinator.
