Greetings MSAP parents and teachers,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you back to the 2014-2015 school year. With hopes of bridging the gap between the parents, students and faculty, the MSAP PTA would like to invite you to our 1st annual Sip & Shop event. We will have vendors from various companies such as Mary Kay, Tracey Lynn, Isis Reigns, Inc. and many more available to you for your shopping pleasure.

If you or someone you know owns a business or works from home and would like to become a vendor, please feel free to reach out to the PTA via email at We truly appreciate your support. Tell your neighbors and friends about this event so that it can and will be a success.

Please keep in mind that this is also New York Cares Volunteer Day, so you will see many people moving around our building and doing work to help support our school. 

Event date: October 18th, 2014

Event time: 10am to 3pm

Admission: Free to everyone unless you are a vendor. Vendor fee is $25 per table.

We will be having a raffle and when you purchase from one of our vendors you will receive a raffle ticket. You could win a prize while supporting your school and child/ren.


Thank you again for your support
