This is the time of year where we all reflect upon the many things we are thankful for in our lives. I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate all we have in our PS 347 School community. As the Parent Coordinator, I am thankful for the wonderful parents and teachers who I get to interact with on a daily basis. I am also very thankful for the support and hard work of our dedicated PTA executive board, and school administrative staff.


Please remember school is closed on November 27th and November 28th 2014.

Happy November!
