Summer Camps

Hello Parents/Guardians -

Do you have a camp you would like to recommend to other families.  A day camp in the city or is it an away camp.  Please write and give us details of your favorite camps.  Also, while you are at it, do you have places in the city that are fun and you would like to recommend for others this summer.  Summer is a time that we have camping and activities with our children.  Let me know your recommendations.

The March Issue of Manhattan Family has a lot of good information about summer camps.  There are articles about first-time campers, artilces about allergies,  and lots of information about possible camps for your child.

If you haven’t looked into camping yet, check it out.  I have a copy in Room 408 you can look at or you can just go online –

Any questions, please feel free to call.

The Auction was a fabulous night!! Hmmmm…I wonder what will pop up next at PS 3. Wait, did somebody say POP UP!!!!!

That’s right, it’s time to clean out your closets for the PS 3 Pop Up shop. Clothes can be dropped off in the mornings starting after Spring Break in the gymateria or you can bring them up to the parent room.
We are accepting new and gently used women’s clothes and accessories. So round up those things you haven’t worn in awhile…clothing, shoes, purses, jewelry…  As a guideline of what we will take, think Banana Republic or higher.  As always we will need a whole bunch of volunteers to make this happen. We need help collecting clothes and sorting, help in the store and then help after breaking it down. If you are interested in helping us out email We always have a blast running the store!

***we are on the hunt for space for this years store….so if you know of a spot please email us!***
