Febuary Updates

Dear PS3 PTA 2013-2014 Members,


We hope you and your family have had a good start to the New Year.  February 20th marks the 100th school day, which means we are more than half-way through the school year.  For the remaining 80 days until summer vacation, the PTA‘s goals are to:

1. Sprinkle the students’ school days with a “Health & Fitness is FUN Event”, a “I Love Reading Day”, and a “Year-End Field Day”.

2. Encourage Family Time with “Family Science Week” and a “Spring Movie Night”.


February is Feb-FUN-Fundraising Month
