Food Grow Play Committee

An umbrella committee comprised of the Cooking Room, Lunch & Recess, Gardening, Green and Wellness committees.

The Gardening Committee offers guidance and support to teachers as the children in their classes learn to sow, care for and harvest crops in our Woolly Pockets school garden. They also coordinate the use of PS3′s plot at The Urban Farm at Battery Park.

The Green Committee develops and implements ideas to help make our school greener, healthier, and more environmentally friendly.

The Lunch & Recess Committee recruits volunteers to assist our kids in the lunchroom. Most K/1 kids can’t open milk cartons on their own and 2/3 students always need to be reminded to eat. This committee is also responsible for certain aspects of the play yard.

The Wellness Committee administers our healthy lunch program, Wellness in the Schools (WITS) and helps educate kids on healthy food choices.
