Programs at PS3:
The PS 3 Chorus with Greenwich House Music School
Mondays after-school from 3-5 pm
September 11-March 18, 2024
The PS 3 Chorus returns this year on Monday, September 11, 2023 with Greenwich House Music School faculty and teaching artists Leslie Frost and Reese Overstreet! Class will consist of one hour of chorus instruction, which will help students build a foundation of singing and listening skills with the goal of making music together. Chorus will be followed by an hour of creative activities including theater games, improvisation, and movement with a focus on community building and fun! Homework help and guided studying will conclude each afternoon. Parents can pick up their children at 5 pm from the school’s Hudson St entrance.
This program is free for the community of PS 3 thanks to funding from New York City Councilmember Erik Bottcher’s office through the Department of Youth and Community Development.

Offsite – but pick up from PS3:
Greenwich House’s Youth Community Center (YCC) offers an After-School program that combines play, movement, and creativity with academic enrichment to keep students grades K-8 engaged five days a week. YCC activity leaders pick up PS3 students and walk them over to their campus at 27 Barrow St.
With 20+ arts and STEM classes - including Game Lab, Junior Coder, Paint and Drawing, Pottery, Podcasting, Kitchen Lab and more - the YCC encourages students to explore their interests and hone their self-expression, adding purpose and meaning to their projects.
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon with Barrow Street Nursery School teachers. Our expert early childhood teachers provide a safe and developmentally appropriate afternoon for children ages 3-5. Utilizing our facilities at 27 Barrow Street, children play on our roof, track and gym, and have specialist classes (pottery, music, art, movement) in the afternoons.
Barrow Street Nursery School is now offering enrichment classes, in addition to our afterschool program. We have a selection of classes from 3-4pm and from 4-5pm. Both classes include walkover and snack, and the 4-5pm class includes a gross motor time. Students may choose to sign up for the standalone classes or in conjunction with our regular afterschool program until 5:30pm.
