JAM

Come and join Mr. Mischel for the TGIM@PS3 tomorrow and every Monday at 8:10am by the amphitheatre in the courtyard.

The PS3 PTA is proud to announce that Frank R. Conwell Elementary PS#3 has been selected to be the New Jersey State Leader for the 3rd Annual JAM Day for the JAM World Record on Thursday, February 12th, 2015.

What is JAM? 

The JAM (Just-A-Minute) School Program brings physical activity and health education to the classroom. It is promoted and backed by leading groups such as Let’s Move! (First Lady Michelle Obama’s comprehensive initiative dedicated to solving the childhood obesity epidemic), the American Heart Association, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, NFL Play 60, USDA, National PTA, NBA FIT, Discovery Education’s Energy Balance 101, NASPE (the largest group providing physical activity resources to teachers across America), plus hundreds of state and local groups and organizations with health and wellness initiatives.

As New Jersey’s JAM leader, it will be Frank R. Conwell Elementary PS#3’s challenge to recruit and encourage as many New Jerseyans as possible to register with http://www.jamworldrecord.org/ and join us wherever they are on Thursday, February 12th and JAM. Last year’s winners had 7% of their state’s population register and participate. As you all know by now with Principal Mischel, we "GO HUGE!!! ALL THE TIME!!" 

As a multi-culturally diverse school, we are challenged to reach out to schools and communities outside of our own borders. Let’s invite the Conwell Tigers’ Extended Family & Friends in every corner of the world, including the rest of North America, Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe. The World is our limit!

Stay tuned for updates as we prepare for the 3rd Annual JAM Day for JAM World Record on February 12th, 2015
