Parents at P.S. 117 in Briarwood are asking for donations so their children can have the full graduation experience. 

They started a crowd funding page on giveforward.com, hoping to raise about $4,500, which is needed so the nearly 170  graduating fifth-graders can receive caps and gowns, yearbooks and a senior prom.

The graduation items and senior dance are usually sponsored by the school’s PTA. However, because the Department of Education is investigating $30,000 missing from the accounts of the school’s PTA—which The Courier first reported earlier this month—the current PTA is barred from fundraising and any other financial dealings, officials said.

Parents are organizing the school dance and the buying of the yearbook, and caps and gowns by themselves. They have received more than $1,000 already.
