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
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.
