No amount too small - or too large!
WE NEED YOUR HELP TODAY TO CONTINUE THE PROGRAMS THAT MAKE STAR Academy-PS63 SHINE
Every year, our budget is cut. We are asked to do more, with far less. We are left with fewer and fewer dollars to spend towards programming we know is important to our students and families. If you, family, friends or companies you know want to support our programming there are a few ways to make tax-deductible donations. Here is an example of some of our costs and some ideas of how to donate:
Full Time Art, Music an Physical Education teacher: $150,000
Technology- Computers, Smartboards, Printers, Laptops- $15,000
Classroom essentials for teachers (markers, paper, chart paper): $5,000
Family Fun Events (Ice Skating, STAR Week, 5th grade overnight field trip): $4,500
Substitute teachers so our teachers can attend Professional Development- $5,000
Student trip subsidies: $3,000
Supplementary math and science programming: $8,000
Staff Development: +$35,000
Recess supplies: $300
...and much more.
Many thanks to ALL of our families for their many contributions to the school!

Donate School Supplies
Every year, the PTA partners with SchoolKidz to allow parents to order supply kits, which are delivered to the school the first week of school. A small percentage of the cost of the kit goes towards the PTA.
In addition, the PTA donates 1 kit per classroom to provide additional supplies to teachers.
Teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pocket on school supplies. If your company would like to donate school supplies, our school is always in need of items such as:
Please contact our school secretary Felicita Carmona at FSalem@schools.nyc.gov to coordinate a donation.
Our teachers are constantly advocating for the needs of their children and thinking of creative ways to get classroom supplies with constantly dwindling school budgets. In the past few years, they have received a total of $21,000.
Teachers often write grants for items that their children need and post them to the website DonorsChoose. You can make a tax-deductible donation of any amount towards the projects they post. Also feel free to post links to them on your social media.
