PS 152 is excited to announce that we will be getting a new schoolyard. Our students are hard at work helping to design a schoolyard that the whole community will enjoy. We held a community design night as well. Parents had a chance to offer suggestions as to what they want to see built in the schoolyard. The students went to see a completed schoolyard to get design ideas and to play on the equipment.

P.S. 245, Magnet School for Arts and Science had two fifth grade students, Aneres H. and Wyatt G., participate in a reading and writing project at Teacher's College/Columbia University titled "Raise Your Voice." This two day workshop was designed to support young people in writing, speaking, and planning for action around a cause or an issue that they care about in their community or in the bigger world.  Aneres chose  the "Unfairness of Family Laws and Children's Rights" while Wyatt discussed "Animal Activism and how It effects the environment.  P.S. 245 encourages students to participate in outside academic events and commends them for keeping us proud! PS 245, Magnet School of Arts and Science had its Spirit Day Parade. The students made costumes depicting either an Arts or Science theme, along with a poster identifying their class. We marched through the neighboring community chanting the praises of our school, letting the observers know who we are and why our school is special. But even more important was the realization the children aqcuired that let them know that they can aspire to be anything they want to be when they grow up. That whether it be a scientist, a painter,a doctor... they have the potential to enter the profession of their choice. We made lots of noise, had fun and let our school community be known. Yay PS 245, Magnet School of Arts and Science!
