P.S. 215’s  Annual Staff vs. Student Basketball Game. A great end of term tradition.


On Sunday, March 19, 2017, the PS 212 Koala Cheerleaders won 3rd Place and the Spirit Award at the First Annual OWL NYC Youth Cheerleading Competition held at John Bowne HS. Their performance was outstanding, we are so proud of them. This is the first year PS 212 had a cheerleading team and competed in a competition thanks to their new Principal, Mrs. Horne. A special shout out to Ms. Balzomo, Mrs. Castelluccio, and Mrs. Lozano for all your hard work and dedication to their children




Congratulations to PS/IS 288’s  Middle School girls basketball team for a great comeback win on January 25, 2017.


Mark Twain Intermediate School’s  8G athletics talent students defeated police officers of the 60th Precinct 61-56 on January 18, 2017.



Great job PS 288’s  athletes  during the  AAU nationals in Florida. Every athlete ran their best time of the season and gave  100% effort. 8 of our 13 athletes earned medals, 2 of their athletes earned the prestigious All-American honors and their 9/10 girls team came in 4th overall running against all-star teams from different states. Great things continue to happen at 288. Go Eagles!!!!!15267698_1770398343224617_5601694057277650881_n.jpg
