Join The Lunch Bunch! Info Session on Thursday


Recess should be fun and lunch shouldn’t be stressful. You can help make that happen!

Volunteering during lunch period is a great way to get to know more students by assisting them and encouraging them to eat up in 25 minutes. Two parents are needed to commit one hour, one day a week, from 10:40 a.m. 11:40 a.m., to ensure daily coverage for grades k-1. Parents are also welcome to volunteer for grade 2/3 periods.

10:40 – 11:05 a.m. kindergarten
11:05 – 11:30 a.m. grade 1
11:35 – 12:00 p.m. grades 2/3
12:00 – 12:25 p.m. grades 2/3

Kindergarteners and 1st graders need the most help. Second- and third-graders need help learning which items go into landfill, recycling and compost.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to: Interested parents can attend the Lunch & Recess Committee first meeting on Thursday, Sept. 22, 8:30-9 a.m. in the gymeteria.

The Lunch & Recess Committee is part of the umbrella of Food Grow Play, which also includes the Garden Committee, Wellness in the Schools (WITS), and Green Committee. For more information, please visit the lunchroom committee page on

Introducing Carrie Reynolds, PS3 Parent Coordinator

Carrie Reynolds


Carrie will be a first point of contact for all questions regarding your child’s experience and education at PS3. She is going to be a great liaison between families and the office and will connect you with a relevant staff member when necessary.

From Carrie: “I’m thrilled to be at this wonderful school. As the parent of two teenage girls, ages 13 and 16, I have logged many years as a PTA president and volunteer in District 3 schools, and I’m passionate about helping parents and families improve their school experience. I’ve already met a number of parents, guardians and babysitters, and I look forward to meeting everyone over the coming weeks.”

If you haven’t already, you’re likely to see Carrie’s smiling face around school. Please visit her in Room 408, call her extension (212-691-1183 x2), or email her at with any questions, concerns, or suggestions, or just to chat.

MyLibraryNYC for PS3


The New York Public Library has a special relationship with PS 3 families. All PS 3 children are able to have fine-free borrowing on books (late fees still apply to DVDs). If your child already has a library card, go to any NYPL branch and tell the librarian that he/she goes to PS 3. They will switch the privileges on the card. If your family doesn’t have a card, fill out an application at the library (Hudson Park Library at 66 Leroy St. is closest to PS 3) and get one today!
