Coat and Book Drive Updates

Along each of our daily paths, and to-do lists, there are sweet moments that give energy and an emotional boost. Last Friday evening our community collected over 50 coats for our sister school, PS 124. And in the slosh of Monday morning, we delivered hundreds of gorgeous picture books from our book drives, plus a small toy for each kindergartener, to PS 169.
