Brooklyn Children’s Museum Annex, DUMBO – “Spark”

Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten classes at PS 307 are learning all about building communities through block play. P.S. 307 has formed a partnership with The Brooklyn Children’s Museum in which children will investigate what makes a community and explore the roles of people who plan, design and build the structures within a community. After completing the lab lessons in their classrooms, classes will visit SPARK, Brooklyn Children’s Museum new annex in Dumbo. Upon their visit to SPARK, students will get to build the structures that they have designed and planned.

DUMBO Business Improvement District

The DUMBO BID has worked closely with the students and staff of PS 307 since 2006. The relationship started out as an opportunity to take students to baseball games as part of PS 307’s Book-a-Thon. That partnership grew in 2012 when the DUMBO BID worked with DUMBO startup Flocabulary to start Big Idea Week–a week-long mentorship program built to encourage students to use and apply their STEM skills to come up with ideas that solve problems they may encounter in their lives, while connecting with local entrepreneurs in their community.

School Wellness Council

The School Wellness Council (SWC) helps to create an environment in which schools can holistically and systematically prioritize physical education and health education as cornerstones of school wellness, while also creating more opportunities for physical activity, nutrition, and health related improvements across the entire school’s community.  Our SWC is an advisory group concerned with the health and wellbeing of the entire school community: students, staff, parents/families. On the SWC there is representation from across the school community, including students, teachers, school nurses, administrators, school food staff, custodians, mental health providers, and community based organizations. The SWC serves as a great way for parents/guardians and parent associations to participate in implementing City and school wellness policies by either serving on the SWC or volunteering with its programs and subcommittees (e.g., gardening, wellness event planning).  P.S.307’s very own garden is in the works! Keep your eyes on the schoolyard at the corner of York and Navy to see our progress!
