Spoons Across America

Students in 1st and 2nd grade were treated to a workshop on healthy eating through the organization Spoons Across America. This organization is dedicated to educating children, teachers and families about the benefits of healthy eating. They taught our students healthy eating habits through hands-on education where students got to prepare and taste different kinds of local food.

Saluting the Woman Who Help Women!

The P.S. 83 Student Council decided to give back to our community during Women's History Month.  Our 5th through 8th graders participated in a 'Penny War' to see who could raise the most amount of money to help our local women's shelter, The Sienna House.  Together, we raised over $2,000!!

5th Grade Saves The Rainforest

After studying a unit on rainforests and the deforestation that has been slowly occurring, our 5th grade students decided to take action by having a Green Rainforest Bake Sale on St. Patrick's Day.  Everybody wore green and treated themselves to fresh baked goods.  The result of their efforts yielded close to $2,000 that went to an organization called Kids Saving The Rainforest.
