Bowling Club for Grades 3, 4 & 5

Bowling Letter 2019

Dear P.S. 101 Parents and Guardians,

P.S. 101 would love to give grades 3, 4 and 5 the opportunity to join a weekly bowling team. Bowling is a great way for kids to make friends and learn how to synergize. In order to create a bowling league, we would like to have an idea of how many students would be interested in becoming a member of this club. If there are enough dedicated students who want to join, staff members will contact local bowling alleys in Bensonhurst to find out the specific details. Although staff members will be present, parents/guardians are expected to supervise their child.

If your child is interested in becoming a member of P.S. 101’s bowling team, please complete and send in the tear off slip below by 4/03/2019. In the upcoming weeks, there will be an updated letter that will be sent home confirming if there will be a team, which will provide more information.
