Harvest Day was a HUGE success!

Best Kids’ Quotes:

  • Can we have this tomorrow?
  • This lunch is so great! I can’t wait until the next Harvest Day

Thanks to Anna Scott Ellis and everyone at the Battery Urban Farm — thank you for your generous donations of organic produce provided to our cafeteria every week during the growing season.  The kids enjoyed wonderful roasted sweet potatoes and purple top turnips as well as greens and herbs.  Thank you too for your farm education and engaging the children around healthy food and how food is grown.

Thanks to Chef Deborah, Willie and the entire kitchen staff and everyone at Wellness In The Schools for your dedication to serving real, homemade, locally grown food to our kids.  The children love your recipes and we love having you at PS3!  Thank you for also engaging the children around cooking, nutrition and healthy eating.

Thanks to Dawn and Seuvena for your support with our efforts!  Thanks to all of the parent volunteers who came to help serve healthy food.  We so appreciate all of your support.

Let’s Keep Our Children Healthy!

Some serious viruses are going around and precautions are our best defense against the spread of disease.  While some of these basic routines might seem obvious to you, younger children still struggle so it is important to continue teaching:

  1. Hand Washing: Use soap (not antibacterial sanitzer!) and wash for 20 seconds.
  2. Nose Blowing: Tissues should be used!
  3. Coughing and/or sneezing into the inner elbow!
