Weekly Wednesday Meal Pick-Up will continue through the Hybrid Schedule: Both breakfast and lunch meals will be provided each Wednesday at Edgewood Primary School, back of the building.

The TED Talk for Tuesday and Friday September 15 and 18 is delivered by eighteen-year-old Laura Anderson who has a big voice and a driven initiative for change. She took her negative experience with her high school dress code and turned it into something young women everywhere could feel connected to and proud of. A current Queens University student, Anderson has vivid dreams of becoming a lawyer one day and using that position as a way of incorporating her passion and authenticity for personal empowerment. Through her love of public speaking, she wants to induce the important conversations necessary to address the way we think about people and about how women dress.

If you are a freshman and would like one of the class shirts that were handed out at the Freshman Kickoff, come by Miss Brookman's room (E108) to get a shirt. Virtual students may also get a shirt by contacting Miss Brookman to set up a time to pick it up at the school.
