Parent Coordinator's Corner......

From the desk of Ms. Arthur, Parent Coordinator....

'PS 161 will sponsor a ribbon cutting ceremony along with the New York City Department of Parks in celebration of the new PS 161 schoolyard playground.

Our school was selected as part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's, Play-NYC Schoolyards to Playgrounds Initiative.  The playground will be open to the community when there are no students and educational staff members in the building, on weekends, and during school breaks.

The ceremony will take place in the schoolyard of PS 161 on Thursday, September 30th at 10:30 am. PS 161 students will be performing.'
