Spring into Spring Fair
Sunday, June 5th

PS 87’s annual Spring Street Fair is a little over one month away and we need your help!  Spring Fair is the final FUNdraiser of the year.  We close the block of 77th Street, transform our Big Yard, and share our community spirit with rides, games, arts and crafts, food, books, street vendors, and maybe even a little music.  The Green Team is once again adding its eco-friendly creativity, and we are teaming up with sponsors, Spring Lake Camp and the JCC, to provide additional activities.

There are a number of ways to help, but most importantly, contact your Class Parent or Spring Fair Liaison to sign up for a volunteer shift or two.  Kids are encouraged to work with you, as the fair only succeeds if we all contribute.  If you can spare a few hours, love to bake, show off your brawn, or want to get rid of the books that are collecting dust, please click here!
