Students Replace Graffiti on Overpass With Mural Showing Neighborhood Map
QUEENS — A mural featuring a neighborhood map will soon replace graffiti tags covering the walls of an old Long Island Rail Road overpass on the border of Forest Hills and Rego Park.
The mural was designed by a group of high school students attending The Baccalaureate School for Global Education in Astoria, who are currently painting it on Fleet Street, between Thornton Place and Alderton Street.
The school requires its 11th graders to complete a project that would show their creativity and also engage local community, the group said.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s CAS night! Peter Wilson will give a brief overview of the Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) program, a requirement of all IB diploma candidates. But more importantly, tonight affords a wonderful opportunity to see the actual projects completed by our seniors and discuss their individual CAS experiences. 10th and 11th grade students and their families are required to attend. We think this is a great program for all our parents.
(We will also be forming our Nominating Committee for our June 6th PTA/SLT election.)
See everyone tonight at 6:30!

One of our HS teams will advance in Moody’s Mega-Math Challenge. With over 9,000 teams registered, a little over 1200 submitted viable papers and only 200 were selected as semi-finalists for the second round. We will find out if we go further as one of five finalists next week. Kudos to “Team 9429”!
Congratulations to the Helping Hands Committee and Peter Wilson for another successful Blood Drive on Friday March 17 in partnership with the New York Blood Center. Students, staff, and families came out in droves to participate.
On Saturday, March 4th, the robotics club qualified for the New York City Lego League Finals on March 19th.
We took 3rd place for the Core Values judging and finished in the top 19 teams out of 28 teams for the performance of our robot. Take a peek
at what they’re up to in one of our new student-produced videos.
