Thursday, June 16, 2016: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The PS3 SLT will be presenting the results of the PS3 Grade Composition Poll which was conducted between February-March 2016. We had an overwhelming response of over 470 responses across multiple cohorts— current parents, current teachers, alum parents, recent alums (currently middle school and high school age children), and administration. It took us some time to analyze the information and we are excited to present the results and start a dialogue as a community about grade composition at PS3. All cohorts are part of the overall PS3 community and so the discussion is expected to be a reflection of the many perceptions which make up our community.
PS3 is an unusual elementary school as the values espoused by PS3 go beyond the elementary school years and have often been cited by alums as the root of their sense of joy of learning and community. It is therefore the pleasure of the SLT to also welcome the voices of our recent alums as part of the discussion. The evening will begin at 6 pm on June 16, 2016, and the overall goal of the evening is simply to start a dialogue and a discussion which will continue.
Feel free to bring children who are interested in participating. Childcare will also be available for younger children.
Tuesday, June 7, 2016: 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
The PTA meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 6/7, has been moved to take place at 6:15 pm in the gymeteria.
We need images from the square dance, movie night, holiday bazaar, Frost Valley trips (grades 4-5), auction, Halloween, creation of class projects, Whitney field trips, and shots from any event that will reproduce well on the printed page. Please register for a login and type in PS3 Charrette School (make sure there is no space in PS3 and that you spell out Charrette) in the “Search For Your School” field at http://link.entourageyearbooks.com/. Click on the “UPLOAD” tab in the tool bar and choose “UPLOAD PHOTOS,” the first item in the drop-down menu. If your photo doesn’t belong to one of the categories in the menu, please add it to “Other.” There is no need to write a caption if you are using an existing category, but please describe any photos filed to “Other.”
If your class has a creative parent who designed the page, please send the PDF to email@example.com and we’ll upload it for you.
BUY AND CREATE ADS IN THE SYSTEM
Ads help to offset the cost of the yearbook, which is free to every student, teacher, and staff member. Our budget is slightly higher this year because we’re using a vendor, and making available tools for designed ads and class pages. Why not pitch in to buy an ad to thank your child’s teacher(s).
Go to http://link.entourageyearbooks.com/, log in or register, and select “DESIGN a Yearbook Ad.” Again, when selecting your school, please type in PS3 Charrette School (make sure there is no space in PS3 and that you spell out Charrette) in the “Search For Your School” field. Select either “Personal Full Page Ad” or “Personal Quarter Page Ad.” You will see a “Create Your First Ad” pop-window to your left with three steps on how to create your ad using the icons to the left. There is also a “HELP” tab to assist with troubleshooting. If you encounter any problems or need help creating an ad, please call 1-888-926-6571, extension 2, and identify yourself as a parent from PS3 Charrette School.
The Spring Fling is the annual PS3 FUNraiser bringing together parents, students, teachers and neighbors for a day of family fun.
The carnival-like atmosphere includes bouncy castles for young and older kids, live music and karaoke, delicious food from our WITS program, the amazing family dessert table, the infamous PS3 Haunted Glenn, the Wheel of Fortune, games and prizes, educational organizations with fun activities, pocket lady, PS3 committee tables, a raffle and more!
Hitting PS3 on May 14th this year from 11-4, this is truly an all-community event that requires dozens of volunteers to make it happen.
YOU CAN HELP, TOO
The Fling thanks you!!
To the PS 3 Community: Welcome Spring!
We were also treated to a SCOBY petting zoo! SCOBY, or “symbiotic ‘colony’ of bacteria and yeast” is used in making kombucha, a fermented tea. The SCOBY resembles a jelly fish and it made a fascinating appearance, with the bravest students running their fingers along its smooth skin.
TREAT OUR TEACHERS!
We’re celebrating Teacher Appreciation Day this Thursday May 5th. It’s our way to say thank you to the teachers and staff that make PS3 such a special community.
Please bring a main course or dessert of any size to Room 408 after drop off Thursday morning. If you don’t have time to prepare something and you can’t pick something up en route to school, you can place an order with Fresh Direct to be sent to the school lobby (490 Hudson Street) between 8-10am.
