IMPORTANT – Venue Change for 5th Grade Prom

PTA Grade 5 Prom – Change in Venue 2018


June 8, 2018

2020 86th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11214
MONDAY, JUNE 11th from 4pm – 8pm

Dear Grade 5 Parents/Guardians,

With PROM right around the corner, we are informing you there will be a change in venue for the fifth graders to enjoy their time together. We will be holding the 2018 Senior Prom at Club 20/20 located at 2020 86th Street from 4pm – 8pm.

We were notified that the original catering hall booked was closed and they will not be reopening before our big day. However, we were fortunate to secure the Club 20/20 venue for our seniors.

We have used Club 20/20 in the past for many years and it has always even a successful prom party. We are sure the children will have a wonderful experience and a great time at this establishment. The price difference offered was $5 per child extra in comparison to the other venue and our PTA funded this amount for the children’s full participation. The prom will include DJ entertainment, a buffet style dinner with many choices for the children to select from, unlimited soda, juice or water and dessert cake.

Please ensure your child arrives promptly for the 4pm start and doesn’t miss any of the fun and kindly arrange for an adult to pick your child up at 8pm. Parent chaperones are not permitted during the prom as to the room capacity and student DJ events in and around the room.

We are excited to see our seniors at the widely anticipated prom and look forward to creating beautiful memories. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated regarding this new change in the prom location.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach our Parent Association at 718-372-0221 or you can also speak with our PS 101 Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at 347-563-4680.

Please be advised that Middle School Results are being given out to 5th graders today.

They will be given a sealed envelope at the end of the day.  When I spoke to them after lunch, they were encouraged to wait until they were with their family to open it.
