January PTA Meeting: Elevate Education Workshop

Thank you to all those who attended the workshop from Elevate Education at our PTA meeting last night. Elevate Education is aimed at improving the time management skills (and note taking strategies) of our students and how we, as parents, can reinforce these study skills at home.  For more information, please check out their website.  Our thanks to the school for arranging this wonderful workshop!

PTA Meeting Speaker: IB Coordinator Jamie Meisler

A quick reminder that IB Coordinator Jamie Meisler has graciously agreed to attend our November 14th PTA meeting to discuss many aspects of the IB program and NYS Regents exams — from course requirements to the timeline for the various exams. This workshop is helpful for parents with students in all grades and is one of our most popular because she does such a great job explaining expectations for all our kids! She is also happy to answer questions.

We will also be discussing some of the exciting new initiatives from our Fundraising Committee, including Winterfest!!! More details coming soon!

See everyone tonight at 6:30!

Students Replace Graffiti on Overpass With Mural Showing Neighborhood Map

mural project

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.
