  • Ruben is Retiring!

    Our beloved custodian, Ruben Santivanez, will be retiring at the end of this school year after 25+ years of service.  In addition to making our school shine, we are indebted to him with the many hours he's helped us before, during and after school events.  He's been an integral part of the PS166 community both during and after school days. Ruben's not only willing and able but always cheerful with a guiding hand.  We are sad to see him go! If you see him in the halls, please wish him well. Our kids will be drawing/writing cards in the classrooms. If you’d like to write something personal, there is a collection box at the PTA front desk near security till Tuesday.

  • Teacher Gifts - Last Chance!

    All gifts are voluntary with a suggested donation of $40 per child.  Gifts can be passed along to your class rep per their instructions, or you can give cash directly to PTA Co-Presidents Monica and Moira on Monday or Tuesday morning at drop off, outside of the blue doors.
