Green Commitee


Last week for our SHOE DRIVE  –  Donate your outgrown or otherwise unwanted shoes, now through April 18th. Donated shoes will earn 25-cents per pound so look for the separate box for shoes. To  learn about textile recycling, visit: wearablecollections.com.

Sign up here to volunteer in the cafeteria (helping kids sort their breakfast or lunch trash) or to help with curbside compost collection.

Curbside Compost Collection: Tuesday mornings 8-8:30 am. Please bring in a reusable or compostable container, if possible. Go to www.nyc.gov/organics for more information about what to bring.

Textile Recycling: Fridays until 2:45 pm in bin in the lobby. Clothes, stuffed animals, towels, shoes and sheets accepted. Clothes in good condition are sold for reuse, if they are not wearable they are made into rags or pulp for industrial use.

School Library


We love books! Each one of our kids has a library to call their own and a librarian to help them embrace reading and discover books. Our librarian, Rachel Fremmer, leads children in read-alouds, scavenger hunts, and book tournaments that encourage a love of reading. The librarian is made possible by the PTA, which as you know, is all of us.
