Friends of MSC Updates:

Classroom Supplies

We spent time last week organizing and inventorying the teacher’s supply closet. A second bulk order of supplies has been placed to fill the gaps we found and we are still working out a more efficient and economical system moving forward to make sure the supply closest remains stocked.

Tech Update: Printers

We have ordered one high-volume printer/copier for each floor of MSC. They are on the way and we hope to have them in the school by week’s end!

Thanks again to parent volunteers who are liaising with school leadership.

COVID Protocols for Holiday Travel

The DOE does not require families who travel to quarantine or show a negative test before returning to school. Daily health screening is still a requirement. Best practice would be to have every traveler tested before and after traveling.  The CDC recommends “unvaccinated travelers should still get tested 1-3 days before domestic travel and again 3-5 days after travel.” Testing is free and easily available and it helps to keep our school open and healthy.

Please reach out to Tatiana if you have any questions.

PS333.org Website Re-Design

We are still looking for someone to take on the challenge of updating the PS333.org website. If you are interested in giving the site a new look, please let us know!

Ongoing: Candy Wrapper Recycling

Have candy wrappers in October/November? You can recycle them! Shakira signed us up for a candy wrapper recycling program, just in case anyone was planning on letting their kids eat some candy. Find out which day your child has Greenhouse Science, and put EMPTY wrappers in a sealed baggie (that can get recycled, too!)

Program is available until mid November.
