Youth programs are back in action after the winter break. Our after school program continues to reach more children with five new enrollments since the new year. The SAT students completed their second practice exam for the year and several students are busy preparing for the real test at the end of this month.
Before the holiday, our students were very lucky to be able to participate in New York Cares’ Winter Wishes program. Students were able to write letters asking for gifts that they would like for the holiday, which were then generously donated by community members. The students had a great time on December 17th eating pizza and receiving their gifts.
Unfortunately we will not be having our monthly Urban Adventures trip in January. However, we have pushed back this month’s trip, ice skating at Chelsea Piers, to February. The students will have Art Explorers on January 26th.
