    Free Family Trip June 15th

    May 24, 2024

    Dear Families,

    I want to thank all the families who attended our Art Show held on Wednesday, May 22nd. It was wonderful to see our school community enjoying our students creativity and hard work on display. 

    On Thursday, May 23rd Students in class 610  were inducted in the Council for Unity at Crest Hollow Country Club. The Council of Unity’s mission is to empower students, individuals and groups with the tools necessary to  promote unity, safety and achievement in schools, communities, law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities. Since 1975, The Council for Unity has been teaching leadership, self-expression, mediation, conflict resolution and advocacy. The Council for Unity Goal is to end gang violence and bullying one school at a time.

    Students in class 610 a  read a book called "The Dragon Slayer" by Robert De Sena the founder of Council for Unity that showed the students that they'll face and overcome many "dragons" throughout their life. Mr. De Sena was there to read aloud the oath of induction as students repeated after him in order to become members. The students had a great time celebrating with their peers from I.S. 230 as well as many other schools that were in attendance. 

    Next week on Wednesday May 29th and Thursday May 30th our Band and Chorus will be holding their Spring Concerts.  Please see the schedule below and come out and enjoy a night of music.
