Disability Pride Parade

Posted June 20, 2017 By Donna Moscatello
On Sunday July 9th at 11:00AM, the NYC Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities will be holding their 3rd annual Disability Pride Parade. This is a march for everyone: people with disabilities, friends and family of people with disabilities, city agencies who serve the disability community and anyone else that just wants to celebrate disability pride.
With a population of almost 1 million people with disabilities in NYC, every city agency has worked in some way to make a difference for the community. The Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities is asking for city agencies to show their disability pride and come march. This is a great opportunity for outreach, community engagement and to just have a good time.
You can register yourself or on behalf of your agency at:

Our Winners are Honored at BPL Award Ceremonies

Posted June 15, 2017 By Hal Miller

Dear All,

I am just sharing with you a few pics at the Award Ceremonies for our winning 8th graders. Yasmine Benjelloun (8SE) was accompanied
by her mother, sister, and three PS/IS 30 faculty members at a widely regarded Ezra Jack Keats Book Making Competition. We were also treated nicely at the Ceremony as all attended teachers received an opportunity to order 15 books.

Yesterday, Ned Vizzini’s Foundation honored Sundous Aljahmi (8ML). Her poem (2nd place in New York City Creative Writing Contest 2017) has already been published, and you are welcome to see the book in the library on display.

Earlier, Ismayil Gurbanov (8SP) made his way to Albany to New York State Geography Bee!

It is so awarding to see success of our 8 graders as a result of work of all educators and staff members who have been nurturing
these students from 6 to 8 grades!
