Spring has finally sprung!

John Dewey High School hosted its second annual community Spring fest on Saturday April 25th. Local families flocked to the 16 acre campus in the heart of Bensonhurst, to enjoy a free day of festivities. Neighborhood children bounced in the bouncy house, rocked in the half moon and snaked around the campus in a trackless train. The Dewey students and staff served visitors holiday treats of candied apples, popcorn, and cotton candy while the children played carnival games, danced with costume characters and got their faces painted. If you would like more information please like us on Facebook at Brooklyn John Dewey High School Info.
