Cannonball Park was turned into a spooktacular wonderland when the PTA hosted The Pumpkin Stroll. Hundreds of decorated pumpkins - donated by our students - lined the cobblestone pathways of this picturesque park as more than half of our entire school community showed up for a gorgeous evening of costumes, activities and fall treats. The PTA partnered with NIA to bring a food truck and photo booth to the event and Bay Ridge/Sunset Park Rocks provided rocks, paints and materials for crafty fun. To celebrate Día de Muertos, a Day of the Dead ofrenda with pictures of our families and staff's ancestors, was beautifully displayed. Thank you to our partners, NYC Parks & Services, our families and our staff, who handed out candy and goodies all evening long on our trick-or-treat trail!
Together with volunteers and our custodian team, the P.S./I.S. 104 "Gatto Squad" turned our outdoor space into a bonafide pumpkin patch! Students in K-5 took home a free pumpkin courtesy of the PTA, Whole Foods and Foodtown. We cannot thank these wonderful supermarkets enough for donating over 700 pumpkins - enough to gift every elementary student and arts students in 6-8.
