Heritage Day
PS 107’s cultural diversity will be on full display at Heritage Day on Saturday, March 10, from 12 to 3pm. Please consider:

  • Presenting a state or a country.  Share what’s unique about a place where you or your family lived. We’ll provide the display boards and a list of ideas. Email co-chairs Shelly Auster  and Desiree Cassese to reserve your space and start planning.
  • Performing on the 4th floor. We’re always looking to showcase student talent. In past years, PS107 students have performed Irish dancing, German musical theater, Brazilian capoeira, and more. Contact Nancy Lin if you're interested in showcasing a talent.
