As part of the 2/3 Greek Mythology study, this Tuesday, April 28 at 3pm is the MYTH PARTY in the PS3 Library. We will celebrate myths from Norse, Egyptian, Native American and other cultures.

Students are encouraged to dress as their favorite character and find the rainbow staircase leading from the second floor to Olympus (a.k.a. the Library), where they may sit in a throne, forge in Hephaestus’ volcano, pin the head on Cerberus, partake of nectar and ambrosia or enjoy a very special photo opp. Adult caregivers should accompany students.

NOTE: if a child in after-school wishes to attend, please give a permission slip to 3-6 staff and we can likely accommodate.
