In PS 121, Magnet School of Applied Science, they foster leadership in their students. During their PTA meeting, their students are given the opportunity to present to the parents. These students, who are members of the Blue and Green Teams at their school, are responsible for the care of our “live” exhibits throughout the building. These exhibits include animals and plants. Through their “hands-on” learning and interactions, the students become the teachers. All in attendance were educated about the inner workings of their living exhibits. Congrats to their future Scientists!
On 10/2/18 P.S. 153’s Parent Coordinator Yolanda Suarez and Teacher, Lisa Pimpinella coordinated a parent engagement workshop “Painting the Buddy Bench” for the school’s initiative “Start with Hello.” Over 20 families helped to paint the bench, therefore making their school a little brighter!
