Graduation Day, 3-K Style

Earlier this year, we stopped by one of our 3-K classrooms at P.S. 1 in the Bronx to see how some of NYC’s youngest students were settling into first-ever school year. Now with the 2017–18 school year coming to an end, we returned to P.S. 1 one last time to witness their graduation into pre-k!

That’s All, Folks

The last day of the 2017–18 school year is here! Congratulations to all of this year’s graduates, and a huge THANK YOU to all of our teachers and staff members!
