Dear Maspeth Elementary School Families:
On Tuesday May 28th, 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., we will be hosting our Spring Walk Through and Caine’s Arcade fundraiser. The event promises to be a fun and exciting time.
Over the course of the evening you will have the opportunity to walk through our school to see the projects your children have been working on. You are invited into your child’s classroom, where you will see different grade level projects including as follows:
Kindergarten: Kindergarteners in Full Bloom First Grade: Children of the World
Second Grade: A Walk through New York City Third Grade: Roller Coaster Project
Fourth Grade: American Revolution Fifth Grade: Caine’s Arcade
Sixth Grade: How Ancient Greeks Influenced the Future
We will also have an art exhibit in the old wing cafeteria, where students’ creative masterpieces will be shown. This year our students have studied elements of design such as line, color, shape, space, texture, form and value.
In addition, we will have our annual Caine’s Arcade 5th grade fundraiser in both gymnasiums. Families can purchase tickets to play the amazing arcade games built by our 5th graders. Tickets will be sold at a cost of 7 for $5 or 16 for $10. The funds raised from Caine’s Arcade will be used to support Bobbi and the Strays in Atlas Park, an animal shelter/adoption center that cares for dogs and cats and Little St. Nick, a foundation that helps ill children in hospitals cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and activities.
We hope you will come out on May 28th to help the P.S. 153 community celebrate the fantastic work being done by our students.
