Info Session for 5th Grade Parents on Puberty Workshops

Science Committee and Science Fair Planning Meeting

Friday, January 26, 2018: 8:35 am - 9:15 am

Please come to the next Science Committee meeting and help us plan for a PS3 Science Fair.

This will not be a competition-based fair; rather, the theme would be a learning-based fair. The goal isn’t to show off who’s got the bigger and blastier volcano, but rather, how we can design simple but effective demonstrations that can clearly communicate an immutable but basic scientific principle, from K to 5.

Parenting Workshop: Parenting in the Digital Age

Back by popular demand! Don’t miss hearing from Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, Executive Director of the National Association for Media Literacy Education, on January 17, 2018, at 6:15 p.m.  Michelle will discuss the many ways — both positive and negative — in which media is impacting our children’s lives. Michelle will address social media, digital citizenship, and media literacy, and will offer tips on how to navigate parenting in this digital age. The various forms of media are a huge part of our kids’ lives. Let’s work together to prepare them for a successful life in today’s world.

Childcare and pizza for kids will be provided!

WITS Update December 2017

wellnessDear PS3 Partners & Community:

Hello everyone! I would like to take some time to let everyone know all of the the fun things going on with Wellness in the Schools (WITS) within your school!

On January 3rd I will be holding a tasting of the menu item Shepherds Pie. This will give the students a chance to taste it before we serve it again on January 24th.

First a note from our coaches Jamel and Jordan: Our fitness partners from SocRoc came to hold a play day on December 5th. The kids had a ton of fun and it was great to see the kids play soccer. Thank you to SocRoc and we hope to see you soon!

Our next round of WITS Labs will be held the week of January 29th, we will be learning about carrots. The students will be making a recipe using carrots and of course tasting their work. As always I will send the recipe out with additional ones for everyone to try together!

February 14th we will have a WITS Cafe Day featuring Untitled and Chef Suzanne Cupps. The team from Untitled will bring a tasting from the restaurant for everyone to taste alongside their lunch. This will be a fun, delicious day and a great experience for the students to get a chance to chat with the restaurant staff!

I hope everyone has a restful and happy Holiday! As always please reach out at any time!

All the best,

Lauren Nilsen
