PS3 is not just a school, but a community of learners.
The uniqueness of PS3 comes from our ability to create a welcoming space full of wonder and excitement that focuses on supporting the creative, academic, and social skills of each and every child.
To continue this tradition, it’s time we ask you to invest in your child’s education through our annual Parent-Teacher Association fall fundraising drive.
Each year, our PTA raises around $500,000 thanks to tax-deductible donations from the PS3 community. That comes out to about $800/child.
These funds support PS3’s arts, music, clay and science programs as well as essential teaching assistants, teacher development, field trips, community events, supplies and much, much more.
With your help, we can fully invest in your child’s learning! Our goal is to raise $260,000 in direct donations which is 60% of our budget. We plan to raise the remaining 40% in the spring through events.
Please take a moment to consider what you and your family can give to support all of the children of PS3. Donations may be made on this page and/or by checks (you can avoid all fees!) made out to “PS3 SCC” (mail or drop off at 490 Hudson Street). Cash donations may also be left behind the security desk in the PTA lockbox.
