P.S. /I.S. 206's Student Winner - Outstanding Art Entry at DEP's 31st Annual Water Resources Art & Poetry Contest
We did many fun activities this week at PS 207's E.C.C. to celebrate Earth Week. Our first and second graders made posters showing the many ways we can keep the E.C.C. nice and clean. The students hung their posters through-out the E.C.C. Our Pre-K, Kindergarten, first and second grade students made Earth Day paper chains, highlighting the different things each student could do to help the Earth. During our Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 21st, each class recited their Earth Day poem and we all sang the Earth Day song.
We wish the PS/IS 206 Math Team good luck competing next Saturday April 29th, 2017 at The Armory against other NYC students at the 2017 AMS Pi5NY Math Tournament.

On Thursday, April 20, Andries Hudde JHS opened their doors as the New I.S.240: Andries Hudde Magnet School of Stem for their first annual Family STEM night. In partnership with Avenue U Bagels, BEAM Center of Redhook, Big Bang Screen Printing, Dare 2 Dream, East Flatbush Village, Lenny & Johns Pizza, Minute Man Press, Puppetry in Practice, Brooklyn College, TEquipment, and Uncle Louie G's, students and families were able to construct a windmill that converts windy energy into power, program a robot, build the tallest structure possible using marshmallows, spaghetti, index cards and more! Students presented projects on how to budget a trip to Asia, Exploration of Ancient Egypt ranging from ancient pyramids, hieroglyphics, to even the make-up worn, and creating oddly shaped homes that reduced surface area while maximizing volume.
Both kids and parents had the opportunity to try their hand at Stop-Motion Animation, challenge one of our students to see who can 'juggle' the soccer ball the most amount of times in a row (while displaying the data), cool off with Icees provided by Uncle Louie G's or a fresh fruit smoothie made in house by our students.
Along with Senator Persaud, representation from the Borough Presidents Office, UFT District 22 Chapter Leader Alan Abrams, District 22 Family Support Coordinator Linda Dalton, multiple elementary school Parent Coordinators, CDEC members, the Magnet Team and families from 13 different elementary schools, I.S.240: Andries Hudde introduced themselves to the community as the NEW Magnet School of STEM!
