Why say Count On Me?

PS 163 is able to offer all these programs because of the generous support of PS 163 families. The Department of Education continues to cut school budgets which directly affects our kids. Without financial contributions from our families, PS 163 could not have these programs. We need your support, at any level, to keep these programs for the benefit of all of our kids.

We are asking for participation from EVERY family as generously as you can. No donation is too big or too small!

Our kids are counting on you!


For further information or with any questions, please contact Deborah Lo Cascio and Tracy Newirth at or in person anytime!
