The Parent Teacher Association at P.S. 150 is holding a fundraiser this Friday to raise money for a host of programs offered at the 40-01 43rd Ave. school.

The fundraiser is scheduled to take place at Jack’s Fire Department, a bar/restaurant located at 39-46 Skillman Ave., from 8 to 10 p.m.

The funds raised will got toward the school’s chess, dance, art and music programs. It will also fund the 5th grade musical production that plays to a sell-out crowd each year.

P.S. 150 is a sought-after school, offering a gifted and talented program and a thriving dual-language Spanish/English program. The school is also a title 1 school that supports students from low-income families.

PS 150

“As a parent new to the P.S. 150 community, I am impressed with the level of dedication of our current PTA … and how many projects and events that the PTA funds and hosts,” said Crista Giuliani, who has a child at the school. “The PTA really does do an amazing job of enhancing the already great programs offered at P.S. 150.”

The event will take place in the outside area of Jack’s Fire Department and has a theme of “Night Under the Stars.” The outdoor space is covered.

The PTA is inviting the public—including residents without students at the school—to attend. Tickets, which can be bought online, are $25 and include two drinks and appetizers.

The event also features an auction, with residents able to bid for items online.

Auction items include signed footballs from the Giants and Jets, tickets to Mets and Yankees games, summer camps, tickets to One World Observatory and American Girl Dolls among others.

Items can be bid on at https://www.32auctions.com/ps150qPTA

Skip the racist bull, Skip the awful food, skip the fact that 150 might not be the best..and just help the kids get a few bennies in the way of enhancement. It’s for the kids. Focus!!! I will make a contribution.

Obviously you’ve never stepped into Jack’s. Racism would get chased down the street with a pitchfork if it showed up at this beloved neighborhood watering hole. Great Owners, Great Bartenders, Great Customers and a Great Kitchen.

They weren’t eighty-sixed from Jack’s because of racism. They were bounced for acting like idiots.

This is a school that I emailed because they could not spell the words “parent” and “meet” on their public notice board. Parant and meat dont cut it.

Please forgive my poor punctuation. Spellcheck not needed as THAT’S how it is spelt.

“don’t” is more forgivable that parant and meat for meet.

This is a school of education. Illiteracy is not allowed.

You emailed them because they couldn’t spell on their message board. You need a life. Maybe you should go to the fund raiser.

You are donating money to the school, accoutrements notwithstanding. How much will you be donating if you skip the event?

I wonder if JVB will show up? I would like to discuss his illusion policy and how he will not win queens boro president. Definitely will show up cause he’s definitely scared of the true sunnysider’s and how they oppose his politics especially those dumb bike lanes that no one asked for in this neighborhood.

Why don’t you confine comments about VanBramer and bike lanes to articles that are actually about VanBramer and bike lanes? This is getting like Captain Queeg and the strawberries.

You’re partly right – the majority of Sunnysiders did not want the bike lanes, but the mayor approved the lanes anyway.
