But that’s not all! There will also be tons of crafts, a special clay show, delicious chili and cornbread and zero waste (cool!). The PS3 Square Dance is one of the best family-nights out that you will have, so be there, or (truly) BE SQUARE! See you in the Auditorium!

Lost and Found Needs Some Fixin’

And here’s how you can help!! Grab a Sharpie and LABEL your child’s clothes:

  • Coats
  • Sweaters
  • Lunch Boxes
  • Water Bottles
  • Hats
  • Gloves/Mittens/Scarves

with NAME and ROOM NUMBER. Or, you can also purchase labels from Name Bubbles (Put your child’s Name & Room Number in the Bubble and it will be easily seen).   These labels are dishwasher / laundry safe, waterproof and durable.  Better yet, PS3 receives 20% of all purchases if you use code: PS3PTA15 (all caps). If labelled, Lost and Found Volunteers will return your items to the classroom once a week.

Morning Bus

Dear PS 3, 

Is your bus running late in the morning?  
Well you can do something about it.   Write to the link below.
You might want to do it every time they are late and twice.  
There is an old saying the squeaky wheel gets the grease. 

Let’s squeak!!

Did you know that during the growing season and according to availability, vegetables, fruit and herbs from the PS3 Woolly Pocket School Garden and the Battery Urban Farm are available at the cafeteria Salad Bar? Encourage your kids to eat local at lunch.

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!


NYS test scores are up in ARIS

Go to arisparentlink.org and enter your child’s OSIS (student ID) number & your password.
If you need either your child’s OSIS number or your password, please contact Terry, our Parent Coordinator at TSpringRobinson@schools.nyc.gov. She will see that you get the information you need.
VERY IMPORTANT - put your passwords in a safe place.  They move with your child from grade to grade and school to school.

Summer Programs

Dear Parents,

As I receive Camp Programs, I will be placing them under Vacation & Summer Programs in Featured Pages in the left Hand Column.  As they start to take up space in the center, I feel it is better to have them together.  The latest are on top and it includes everything from educational to play camps and expensive to free.  I haven’t removed the camps from previous years,  because I haven’t received new literature yet.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call 212-691-1183 x2 or write TSpringRobinson@schools.nyc.gov.
