Don’t let your kids say, “I’m bored!” this summer! Over the summer break, have your child log their reading minutes on the provided form. In August, all students who meet the goal will receive prizes, with top readers earning special recognition!
Young Authors’ Reception
The purpose of the Young Author Program is to encourage students’ writing, reading, listening, and sharing skills by creating their very own books. The PTC helps support this program by hosting a reception for all the young authors and their families in the spring.
We LOVE our Farmingdale teachers and each month, we try to show them how much we appreciate their work!

This is always a fun and educational week for students in the spring! PTC helps support teacher and administrative efforts to help students learn about cultures around the world.
The Fall Fundraiser is a great opportunity for students to get involved in sales for their school! Each fall, the PTC will send home a fundraiser packet and order form. This is a great time to stock up on holiday gifts!
