Fall Fest Face Painting

Fall Fest

 Each October, PS 166 parents run this fun-filled street fair for the PS 166 children and the greater community.  The entire block of west 89th street between Amsterdam and Columbus is shut down to make room for bouncy castles, arts and crafts, games, and our famous haunted house!

Montage of Parents at School Auction


PS 166’s Spring Auction Gala is a fantastic night out for parents and staff, and our biggest fundraiser of the year! Each spring, the PS 166 PTA hosts an online auction and evening out, with all proceeds going to our school. Local businesses donate hundreds of gift certificates, outings and products which are auctioned off online.  Each class creates a unique piece of artwork that is auctioned off, and teachers auction off exciting outings. The event culminates in a fabulous night out for parents and administration where the PS 166 community mingles, dances, and raises much needed funding for our school.

Hope to see you there!
