Message from the Principal

Dear Students, Parents and Families,

Thank you for supporting your children in their completion of the bridge projects.  The 2018 Bridge Expo was a fantastic success.  On February 9, 2018, we will distribute packets to students for the STEAM Science Fair which will be held Thursday, March 15, 2018.  Check our calendar, which is now current and accurate.  If you have any questions or are in need of support, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Veronica Brugman, at 718-822-5312, ext. 1081.  Thank you for your continued support.

Educationally yours,

Ms. Margarita Colón
