Harvest Day 2021
We are excited to announce that on Friday, October 29th we will have our annual Harvest Day Celebrations at PS 59! This year the event will be an in-school celebration for our students. All members of our school community are encouraged to wear a costume, silly hat, our school t-shirt, or autumn colors.
Our Pre-k through 1st grade students will participate in a special story time in our school yard. Our 2nd through 5th graders will attend a recess dance party hosted in our auditorium. We will also visit our neighbors at 350 Richmond Terrace. They will once again host a trick or treat for our students. Each child will receive a goodie bag that will be sent home with them in their backpacks. Children will be instructed NOT to open the goodie bag until they are home. This portion of our day’s celebrations will be live streamed via zoom.
In order to make the day enjoyable and safe for everyone, we ask the following:
- Costumes must be appropriate for the school environment. They must be able to walk through the hallways and stairs without any difficulty. They must be able to use the bathroom without assistance.
- No accessories (swords, chains, etc.), facemasks, heavy face make-up or fake blood allowed. These may impede vision, become a distraction and pose a safety risk to others.
- We will not take on the responsibility of changing students into or out of their costumes. Students will be allowed to remove their costumes if they are wearing clothes underneath and are able to do so independently.
How can families get involved? The PTA will be requesting for parents to volunteer, please visit their webpage for more details.
If you would prefer for your child to not participate in some or all of our Harvest Day activities, please email your child’s teacher or firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your preference online at: https://forms.gle/VWXqQWLR98sJFity8 by Thursday, October 28th.
