Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Educating our children and
ensuring a safe and secure environment in which our children are
comfortable to learn remains our top priority. Along with providing our
children with the best possible education and assisting students in
becoming life-long learners, it is essential the school and the home
work collaboratively and cooperatively for the successful development of
well-rounded and responsible individuals.
As we progress through the 21st century, new ideas and strategies are being employed to help students learn. These ideas and strategies are sure to include the bedrocks of education such as science and math and now combine them with specialized educational programs in such areas as technology, engineering and the arts. The successful blending and implementation of these subject areas; Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics is more commonly referred to as S.T.E.A.M. and presents these important educational content areas in a new, refreshing and highly engaging manner that is student-centered.
Our student body is comprised of Pre-Kindergarten through grade six students. Each grade level is equally important in establishing every student’s academic foundation for learning. The primary grades are responsible for establishing the solid base on which all future learning will build upon. The upper grades permit students to expand and broaden their thinking and learning while implementing the academic skills they have mastered.
Public School Number 3 has been able to offer students after school programs in mathematics, language arts and science. In recent years, Computer Coding and CSI Science Forensics have also been added to our after school programs. Public School Number 3 is also proud to present students with the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities such as: intramural sports like volleyball and basketball, instrumental music and chorus, drama and peer leadership.
We are fortunate to have an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) that shares the same vision as that of our educators. In conjunction with teachers and with special consideration and care, the PTO has been able to sponsor such events as: assemblies, book fairs, plant sales, honor roll awards as well as social events and other activities for our students.
Public School Number 3 has a rich history of participating in worthwhile community activities as well as to charitable organizations. During the holiday season, local food pantries and Toys For Tots are just two of the charitable groups that the P.S. Number 3 PEER students are happy to contribute to. Participation in activities such as these permits our students to learn life lessons and helps in creating that well-rounded and responsible person.
Public School Number 3 is dedicated to providing our children with the best possible learning experience. We look forward to establishing new parent relationships as well as maintaining and expanding upon those that have already been established. With parents and teachers working together, we anticipate another outstanding and successful year here at Public School Number 3.
