Over the years, the Québec Trip has become an institution for Middle School French students. Although it usually is an 8th grade trip, this year's trip included 7th graders as well. The 2018 trip to Québec certainly lived up to its expectations and was nothing short of an adventure.
To walk around P.S. 146's Special Needs School Carnival on Friday, May 18th, was to see the power of child's play. Edible jewelry-making and face-painting stations, a DJ booth (led by a Venom-clad parent volunteer), popcorn and cotton-candy tables, and even a makeshift dance floor turned the Spanish Harlem school's gymnasium into a raucous, kid-friendly celebration.

Ceremonial Hall was bustling with around 100 members of the Ethical Culture community. The event was a Spanish fifth grade publishing party.

The NGO that runs the school is Las Manos de Cristine.
This week third grade students at Fieldston Lower culminated the end of the year with a picnic and curriculum presentations.
