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.

Gardening News

The PS166 gardeners are getting the school gardens ready for winter. Last month the after-school garden students planted 200 daffodils bulbs and the kindergarteners planted more than 100 garlic bulbs. We are also experimenting with plastic ‘hoop houses’ to see if we can keep harvesting some edible greens for a few more weeks.
Fall was productive, with our lettuce, spinach, arugula, chard, kale, sorrel, bok choi, parsley, rosemary, oregano and chives all making it through the November snow storm. The day before Thanksgiving, students from Ms. Holtzman’s class and the after-school garden program harvested pounds of produce from both school gardens. We bagged and labeled all the greens and then brought them over to Goddard Riverside Community Center for their yearly Thanksgiving meal.
Here are some photos of your children enjoying their gardening time:
