PS/IS 30 Relay for Life Team raised $2,500

Posted June 23, 2015 By Mara Lazda

Many thanks to you for supporting the PS/IS 30 Relay for Life Team led by Ms. Guzman and Ms. Lloyd! The team was able to raise $2,500 for the fight against cancer. Go team!

Summer Meals provides free, healthy breakfast and lunch to all children—regardless of New York City residency—ages 18 and under at hundreds of locations around the City. Children do not need to register or show any kind of documentation or ID to enjoy a delicious meal.

This year’s Summer Meals program will launch on Saturday, June 27, one day after the last day of school for New York City students. Starting June 27, breakfast and lunch will be available at hundreds of public schools, community pool centers, NYCHA complexes, libraries, and other locations throughout the five boroughs and spread across neighborhoods. Additionally, there will be four mobile food trucks offering meals seven days a week throughout the summer at locations frequently visited by children and families.

For locations, see: SchoolFood App (for both Apple & Android), an easy way for families to locate Summer Meals sites near them. Families can download the free app by searching “SchoolFood” in the app store. Families can also find locations by visiting schoolfoodnyc.org, texting “NYCMEALS” to 877-877, or via 311.

i2s2c_lunchCongratulations to our sixth-graders, Dana Ahmad, Sundous Aljahmi, Joshua Feliciano, Jiahao Guan and Joyce Wong,  led by science teacher Nathan Tubbs. The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, in partnership with the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) and the Ramon Foundation, announced today that they selected their experiment to send to the International Space Station (ISS) as the winners of the first Intrepid International Space Station Challenge (I2S2C). Forty-two teams participated in the challenge.

The experiment will be sent to the International Space Station in the fall of 2015 on SSEP Mission 8, and an astronaut aboard the ISS will conduct the experiment. After approximately six weeks in orbit, the experiment will be returned safely to Earth for data collection and analysis.

 

“This has been an amazing experience for my students and me. To know that they, as sixth graders, have an opportunity to see their experiment fly into space, has engaged them in a way other projects have not,” said Nathan Tubbs, science teacher and facilitator for the winning team. “I have had a great time watching them complete their research, work as a group and interact with scientists to refine their ideas. It has been hard work, and we are extremely excited to be able to represent the Intrepid Museum, our school and our community as a part of SSEP Mission 8.”

 

“I think it’s really cool that we got chosen because this is a big opportunity,” added winning team member Sundous Aljahmi. “All of our families are really proud of us.”

We are all aware that Cancer is an indiscriminate, debilitating and fatal disease which affects millions of individuals and families on a daily basis.  Through fundraising initiatives to aid research, we can collectively provide invaluable assistance toward finding a cure and eliminating this fatal disease altogether.

Recently our amazing Principal Ms. Heeraman lost her father to cancer and on June 3, 2014 our school lost Anna Ferro one of our school aides. This year our school will be raising funds in honor of Mr. Roberts and Ms. Anna Ferro in continuing the fight against cancer?

On June 15, 2015 our school will be hosting its first Walk – A – Thon around our school community. Students in the Middle School who raise $10 or more will be allowed to attend the walk. We will be walking in honor of these two amazing individuals who have left many memories behind.

The elementary classes who raise $80 dollars or more will be allowed to attend the event as a class. In addition, to the Walk-A-Thon, our school will be selling temporary tattoos, bracelets and relay for life feet for a $1 throughout the month of May to June 20, 2015.

On June 20, 2015 District 20 will be coming together to help the fight against cancer at Fort Hamilton High School. I’m asking every family and staff member to join our team or make a small $10 to $25 donation to help the cause.

Also, you may be able to honor a survivor or deceased family member with a $5 donation for a luminary bag. These bags will be lit on June 20, 2015 and placed around the FHHS School Field until midnight.

Place: Fort Hamilton High School

Location: School Field

Time: 8:30 am to Midnight.

School Team Name: PS/IS 30 ROAR
