Book at Tour for PS 87
School Tour Dates
Tours are only open to parents of children in District 3 who will be eligible for kindergarten through grade 5 in the 2015-2016 school year.  We would like to accommodate as many families as possible, so only ONE PARENT from each family may attend a tour. We regret the need for this limitation.

Tours will be offered through out the fall/winter. Any questions, you can email Margaret Lerner
