Monday was PURPLE for anti-bullying.

Tuesday was BLUE for being a true friend.

Wednesday was PINK for kindness.

Thursday was GREEN for respect for the environment and yourself.

Friday was RED for love.

Students were given raffle tickets when they were caught practicing random acts of kindness.

Beautiful gift baskets were made by different offices and departments and there was a special, Dewey basket from our principal Ms. Hamilton. 29 students won baskets for their random acts of kindness. There were special programs and informational tables during lunch all week. On Friday it was No Child Eats Alone and Ms. Horn and her senior students stayed in the lunchroom all day. They sat with other students and made everyone feel right at home.

Thank you to all who participated and a special thanks to Ms. Doyle.

It took place at DC37 headquarters.  There were about 100 people in attendance.  In attendance from our school were Addis Hoilett, Jayson Garcia, Mr. Megie and Mr. Prempeh.  There were a number of icebreakers that networking skills, there was tying a tie tutorial. Many students including our student learned to tie a tie for the first time. There was other activities where the students created a product and a marketing strategy.

Club spotlight!

My Brother’s Keeper the mission of MBK is to “Change the Narrative” of boys and young men of color, and all students, by closing and eliminating the opportunity gaps they face. MBK also helps them to reach their full potential.  Mr. Prempeh and Mr. Megie who run and founded the club, felt as though it was important to incorporate a community service aspect to their club.  Every month through the end of the school year they take the students in the club to volunteer for various causes and organizations.  The picture where the young men are dressed was at the MBK launch at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens with Superintendent Prayor. It was an amazing event.  The community service event also pictured was attended by the young men of MBK, also attending were member of WOCA. WOCA or Women Of Color Alliance  is another club in our school.  Our students volunteered with an organization called Publicolor to paint the Bronx Park Middle School in the Bronx.  Keep up the good work everyone.
