Spearheaded by our Parent Coordinator, students and their families are engaged in a myriad of activities throughout the year, some of which are aimed at just having a good time as a school-wide family, and others which have a deeper sense of giving back and civic engagement. In recent years, families have made tremendously generous donations to the annual food drive, coat drive and toys drive. In collaboration with McGolrick Park, the beautiful historic park across the street from the school, families have come out for the annual "It's My Park Day" during which the PS 110 community helped clean up litter, raked leaves and planted bulbs and seeds. Students, parents and staff come out in droves for "Family Fun" activities such as trips to see the Mets, the Harlem Globetrotters, Sesame Street Live, Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey Circus, Family Movie Nights (which are hosted at the school), McTeacher Night where PS 110 staff worked the counters at McDonalds and Fall Fest in October.
Another important aspect of parent involvement at PS 110 is the role that parents play during the school day through our Learning Leaders program which recruits, trains and places volunteer tutors at our school. The Learning Leaders at PS 110 are incredibly helpful whether they are lending a hand in the lunchroom, creating displays on hallway bulletin boards, bringing in cupcakes for a celebration, providing translation services or working one-on-one with a child who needs extra attention.
