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.
