Dear PS107 families,
In lieu of our normal October First Friday activities, the Diversity Committee has organized a special ceremony in celebration of PS107 Day and PS107 attaining the Anti-Defamation League’s "No Place For Hate" status. City Councilman Brad Lander and State Assemblyman Bobby Carroll will be joining us in presenting the official No Place For Hate banner to the school.
All students should report to the big yard next Friday (October 6th) at drop-off. Students will proceed to their classroom’s usual pick-up location within the big yard and will stay there, with their teachers, throughout the assembly. Kindergarten classes will meet their teachers in designated spots close to the ramp by the cafeteria.
Parents and guardians are more than welcome to join their children for all, or part, of the festivities in the big yard. However, due to the large number of people present, strollers will not be allowed in the big yard. Once the celebration is complete, at approximately 9am, parents will say goodbye and depart the big yard, so the students can be led into the school by their teachers. In this case, parents will not be visiting the classrooms this month.
However, in the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be canceled and instead, we will have a more traditional First Friday, with parents accompanying their children to their classrooms.
All students, and their families, are encouraged to wear their PS107 gear and school colors (blue & gold) on Friday to show their school spirit.
We are very proud of the Diversity Committee, the school’s achievements and all that we will be doing to assure PS107 continues to be No Place For Hate. We hope you can join us in this celebration.
Pascale Pradel, Assistant Principal,
Diversity Committee, and
PTA Executive Board
