REMINDER: Upcoming General PTA Meeting, Thursday, April 19

Please join us for the next PTA meeting on Thursday, April 19th at 6 pm. On the agenda that evening, Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries will be joining us to give us an update on his meeting with Dr. Peek-Davis last week. As most of you are aware, District 17 is trying to close the Crown School for Law and Journalism. They want to take away the essence of PS 161. Well for the past two months we have showed a strong voice by signing petitions and engaged in a strong email campaign with the district, the region, the DOE and finally our local representatives. We have met with Assemblymen Karim Camara and Hakeem Jeffries and State Senator, Eric Adams. All have pledged support for PS 161 and are opposed to the closing of the program. Please join us for this important meeting.

Additionally, the fathers/grand-fathers/uncles/cousins, basically all the men who participated in the Father and Children's Sports and Arts Day in March will be awarded with certificates. There was such a wonderful turnout for the program and many of the men expressed the desire to participate in more events. We need to honor these men!

Please be there promptly at 6 pm.
