PS 376 Community Garden
PS 376 administration teachers, students, staff and family came together on Friday, May 19 to complete building our raised beds at the Himrod Wilson Community Garden. We were welcomed by our Assemblywoman, Maritza Davila, her staff, George Torres, Manager of Hope Gardens, and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) officials to open the space. The agreement between PS 376 and NYCHA is unique in the city. PS 376 is grateful for the opportunity to share the space with NYCHA residents and we have plans for using the space to grow vegetables, fruit and native plants. Watch us grow!!

PS 376 Featured on Google Blog
Google visited PS 376 with Google Cardboard, their virtual reality viewers, and class 4-403 and class 4-404 took a virtual Google Expedition. The classes launched their social studies unit on Native Americans and did so by visiting a Crow Nation Powwow in Montana, learned about the celebration, dance traditions and costumes, and how Native Americans built traditional Teepees.
