Arts for Recess is scheduled for Wednesdays and Fridays at the Annex, and for Mondays and Fridays at the Main building. Art for Recess is sponsored by the PTA. Parent volunteers are welcome and encouraged to join the students for this creatively fun activity. Please contact Ita Lee at italee74@.

- Bike Lane Proposal
Please join a representative from Jimmy Van Brammer’s office after Wednesday morning’s PTA meeting to discuss the Bike Lane Proposal for Skillman and 43rd Avenue. These bike lanes will have a direct impact on our school as the proposed changes are for the streets in front and behind the school.
Please note, the scheduled Town Hall Meeting on Skillman & 43rd Ave Street Redesign at Sunnyside Community Services for tomorrow evening has been postponed until January.
From JVB’s offices: The Department of Transportation informed us today that they do not have the presentation we expected them to give tomorrow evening. We will postpone the town hall until after the holidays and will be back to everyone with a new date with plenty of notice.
I had very much hoped we would be able to meet tomorrow evening to discuss these plans and look forward to gathering in January.
