Blessing Bag Drive
November is a packed month in terms of Community Reads! We have a tight turnaround before our next Community Read: "Those Shoes.” The “Those Shoes" Community Read will be held on Friday, 11/22/19 for all grades (3K-8).
In an effort to streamline the service theme from the book, we have organized a schoolwide Blessing Bag drive. This idea came from the wonderful work the 2nd grade engaged in last year for the November community read (“How to Heal a Broken Wing”). Each grade is responsible for 1 item, and all items across all grades will be compiled into gallon-sized Ziploc bags for Blessing Bags we will donate to a women’s shelter here in East Harlem. Each student only needs to bring 1 of the grade’s assigned items, and teachers will collect these donations between Monday 11/04 and Friday, 11/22. Our student council, led by Ms. Marte, will be working with volunteers from New York Cares to collect the items from your classrooms on 11/22 in order to create our school’s Blessing Bags upstairs in the gym.
Breast Cancer Awareness
On October 18, PS/IS 171 supported Breast Cancer Awareness by encouraging all staff and students to wear pink to raise awareness. Students and staff members wore a pink attire OR in the form of a pink pin, bracelet, button, or ribbon.
