Hey PS3 Project PLAYers - the initiative is finally complete! Each PreK space now has a slide and a monkey bar. The big kids have imagination playground blocks. Bike racks were installed a couple years ago, and the PreK garden is flourishing. So happy for our PS3 Tigers!

Great news, the Board of Education approved PS3 Project PLAY s donation of playground equipment. The School District will also complete the installation. We are shooting to have everything installed before the new school year. Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time, donated funds or services, and generally supported this initiative over the years. Enjoy your summer!

I hope everyone had a great summer, and is getting back into the swing of things. I know we were a little quiet over the summer, but we were still working away. First, some acknowledgements to local vendors and organizations for their continued support of PS3 Project PLAY over the summer. Torico s Premium Homemade Ice Cream Parlor made us their charity of the month in June and half of July, raising $203.60 dollars in donations. Also, Bambino Chef, E.Tittlemouse & Co., Ingrid K. Studio | Photography, Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association Farmers Market, and the Historic Downtown Jersey City Farmers Market helped us by selling Coupon Books at their places of business. We will also be selling the remaining Coupon Books (and t-shirts) at the next PS3 PTA meeting, and at the All About Downtown Jersey City Street Fair on September 21. Thank you to all our wonderful partners! As an up-date, we are meeting with Principal Mischel later this week to go over equipment options and other items in hopes that we can move on purchases and installations this Fall. This includes equipment for the PreK playgrounds and older playgrounds, storage solutions, sidewalk art, and BIKE RACKS! We also met with a potential facilitator for an after school Garden Club, and hope to get a full proposal from her this week. A more detailed up-date will be coming soon... As always, we appreciate your volunteer and charitable support. Donations are always welcome at Cheers!

Project PLAY Year-End Summary PS3 Project PLAY has been busy fundraising and coordinating with teachers, parents and gardening organizations this school year. As of June 10th, PS3 Project PLAY netted almost $16,000 for this fiscal year, and we have a few more opportunities to sell coupon books and t-shirts before the school year is out. With the funds left over from last fiscal year, Project PLAY has just under $19,000 for equipment and gardens. We are working with the PreK teachers and PTA Recess Committee to finalize equipment purchase lists and other beautification projects to be installed before next school year begins. Our first learning garden was planted by students and teachers in the PreK Playground on May 29th. The plants are small right now, but they will flourish and fill-in under the tender care of a PS3 Summer School Class, and be ready to provide fun learning experiences for next year’s PreK students. We are also talking to a community gardening group about an after-school club partnership for the next school year. We would like to thank everyone that supported PS3 Project PLAY this year. In particular, we would like to thank our volunteers: Catalina Aranguren Robert Chu Carrie Craft Carolina de Brigard Gigi Gavon Claudia Gonzalez Flores Adam Irving Patricia MacLean Cathy McNally Courtenay Mercer Nora Simonsen Jodi Schwarzer Karin Vanoppen Manisha Vijayaraghavan PS3 Conservation Committee Ms. Barber and the PreK Teachers Finally, we initiated op Loupon Book Fundraiser in April.
