!! PENNY WAR !!
This week we will be collecting pennies for a 'Penny War' to help the victims of the most recent hurricanes and natural disasters. All donations will be given to the RED CROSS.
The goal of the Penny War is to collect as many pennies for your grade as possible. Whoever gets the most pennies at the end of the week will receive a free recess period. If you don't have pennies, don't worry, you can also donate coins and dollars.

Ps 83 helps bring back Barnes & Noble
P.S. 83 visited Barnes & Noble during their last hours with a special holiday wish...
P.S. 83 held a holiday event at Barnes & Noble that featured the middle school choir, guest read alouds from administrators, student gift wrappers and a visit from Assemblyman Gjonaj. In addition, we delivered over 3,000 letters to Barnes & Noble asking them to keep their promise of relocating in the Bronx as soon as possible. The letters were written by students from P.S. 83 and other schools in District 11.
PS 83 Pumpkin Patch
Thank you Councilman Vacca!!
Today Councilman Vacca came to visit us to introduce a new horticultural grant that will allow us to convert our front yard into an outdoor classroom. With the help of the Horticultural Society, we will be building upon our garden while also creating an outdoor classroom with tree stumps for chairs and desks.
The event started with the Councilman giving away pumpkins and reading a book called How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? by Margaret McNamara.
