Field Day Volunteers Needed

Be a Kid Again! Volunteer at Field Day

Relive your own youth while our kids have a blast outdoors on Friday, June 2. Pre-K kids play Field Day games on the roof, and K-5 kids compete in classic Field Day activities like relay races and tug of war at Pier 40. Kids will be assigned to teams – Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Thebes – the week of May 29.

We are looking for parents who are willing to help the Pre-K teachers on the roof, as well as K-5 parents who can get equipment to the field, score the games, fill water jugs so the kids stay hydrated, and help everyone get back to school at the end of the day. If the rain washes us out, we do the entire show in the school.

To volunteer, please contact Camille.

“Talking with Your Kids About Sex, Sexuality, Puberty and Gender:” A workshop for parents

Our final parent workshop of the year will take place on Tuesday, June 13, at 6:15 p.m. Appropriately enough for the last week of spring, the general topic will be the birds and the bees. It’s never too soon to talk to your kids in an age-appropriate way about sex and sexuality, and it’s never too late to better understand evolving concepts of gender. This workshop will be helpful for parents of children of all ages.

Kate Greenberg, a certified health education specialist and director of School Health Solutions, will give relevant, candid and compassionate advice on how to talk to your children about issues around sex and gender. She will allow plenty of time for a Q&A session, so please bring your questions and don’t be shy.

Dear PS3 Partners & Community:

Hello everyone, I just want to update you on another great month! Earth Day was a huge success and I was so grateful to be invited to be a part of it! The different tables, the students participation and smiles were so nice to see. Everyone loved the WITS No Waste Salad. I roasted potato skins, used carrot shavings, red & green bell pepper scraps, broccoli stems, cucumber & tomato scraps and more! The kids were very interested to hear about the different veggie scraps used.

Our next and last WITS Labs for the year are the week of May 15th. This will be our Greens Lab, the kids will get to make different salad dressings and trying them with different greens. There will even be a fun fruit surprise with a yummy yogurt dip!

Our next Food Grow Play committee meeting will be May 3rd at 8:30am. Please join us if you can. There are always great ideas and your participation would be a huge help!

As always please reach out to me at any time.

All the best, Lauren Nilsen PS3 WITS Chef
