Invest in Our Children Annual Appeal


April 2021


Dear 276 Families,


Thanks to your generous contributions to our "Invest in Our Children" campaign, we were able to claim the full $45,000 match offered through our March Match-ness program! We are grateful to the five 276 families, including the Wann Family Foundation, who provided the funds for the match, and to everyone who contributed.


If you have not yet contributed, there's still time! Every gift gets us closer to our $500,000 fundraising goal. 


Why Give? The PS/IS 276 PTA raises funds to fill the gaps left by the NYC Department of Education’s budget. Over the past year, budget cuts and decreased enrollment have widened those gaps.


Thankfully, contributions from 276 families like yours make it possible for Principal Terri to continually adapt as our school faces the unprecedented challenge of switching between in-person, hybrid, and remote learning. Your generous gifts give Terri the flexibility to re-imagine the structure of our school and to create a three-cohort program across the lower and middle schools, ensuring that every 276 student receives more live instruction and is able to stay connected to their school community.


Looking ahead, your contribution will allow Terri to respond to the needs of our children as we work to get back to “normal”. As we strive to rebuild and strengthen our 276 community, our children will need not only strong academic skills but also social-emotional programs. Our school will need professional development for our teachers, school supplies and updated technology.


The PS/IS 276 PTA is a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.


We look forward to gathering together again soon. Until then, let’s get ready for what’s next and the future of 276!


Your PS/IS 276 PTA
