Dear PS107 and Park Slope Afterschool Center Family,
Ms. Renee Cassell works regularly as a substitute for all grades during the day at PS107 and is a regular staff teaching third grade in Afterschool. She is a valued and dedicated member of the team and we wanted to share the heartbreaking news that she has lost her only child, her son Keanu, aged 21 years, due to complications with asthma. This was a sudden and tragic loss. Keanu was not only the child of a beloved member of the team; he was a PS107 attendee and loved by staff members.
As all families do, we want to pull together to support Renee during this tragic time. We will be sharing funeral details shortly. For those who are able and would like to contribute to a fund to support Renee during this difficult time, you can give contributions to Pamela Rosenberg or Donna Bruno during the day, and to Sandy Phillips in the Afternoon. We ask that all contributions be made by this Friday please.
Thank you all for your support of Renee as she goes through this unimaginable loss.
-The PS 107 Staff and Afterschool Staff
