Dear Walt Whitman Families,

Please SAVE THE DATE for our PTA’s annual Fun Fair – Friday, May 3rd from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.  More details to follow.  In order to make this event extra special for our children we will need help from our Walt Whitman community.

We are asking all parents to please make one or more “themed” donation(s) to help create and fill baskets that will be raffled off at the Fun Fair. Themes by class are listed below. All contributions are appreciated no matter the amount or quantity NO LATER than 4/12. 

For your convenience, we have created an Amazon Wishlist to help you with donation ideas. These items are to be shipped directly to the address under Tara Bensol at 4 Hillcrest Lane Woodbury NY 11797.

Any additional items you may want to donate (i.e. Sports tickets, unopen items) or any gift cards would be greatly accepted and appreciated as well. We realize that not everything is on Amazon so if you prefer to buy or donate something, please drop it off at Cara Kaplan at 3 Fairbanks Blvd Woodbury NY 11797 for collection (please just drop off & label with class name)  PLEASE NOTHING IS TO BE SENT TO SCHOOL

If you have any questions please contact Tara Bensol, Cara Kaplan, Niki Gionis or Cindy Ho.

As always, we appreciate your continued support and generosity. We know with all your help it will be a huge success! More details to come soon!
