At P.S. 340 we are committed to involving our children in activities that help the community. We hope to develop the mindset that good neighbors reach out and help one another. To that end, we choose age-appropriate, local initiatives that involve the students in supporting our New York City neighbors.
Our 2018 - 2019 initiatives are detailed below. As some events are still being finalized, placeholders are noted until confirmation.
