Our PTA, along with our after-school NIA programs, COMPASS (elementary) and SONYC (middle school) are hosting a Toy Drive for children in the community.

    As families are able, our students are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy for a child which can be dropped off in the special boxes near the main entrance.  The toy drive ends on December 14, 2016.

    "A kind heart is a fountain of gladness,
    making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles."
                   --Washington Irving (Writer, New Yorker, 1783-1859)

    Throughout New York City, December is a time of musical performances.

    So, too, here @229K we have Winter Concerts and early childhood "Sing-Along" Assemblies (check our calendar for updated details).

    As the nighttime increases, the sounds of music fill the air,
    recalling and calling forth the warmth and sunshine of longer days,
    to bring joy and laughter 

    Make music.  Sing.  (Or be a part of the audience.)

    Season's Greetings.

    "The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest."
    --William Blake, poet (1757-1827)

    Thanks to those who share their learning;
    Thanks to those who share their knowledge;
    Thanks to those who share their time, their talents, their treasure;
    All for our students.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
