PS 47 Points To End Of Year Activities
The first, second, and third grades at P. S. 47 were winners of the District 27 Computer Contest. The teachers, Mrs. Mulroy, Mrs. Derr, and Mrs. Maffia and a student from each of the three classes were invited to the Awards Ceremony on June 2nd. The sixth grade at P. S. 47 is the Queens Borough and Citywide winner of the "Team Up to Clean Up" Golden Apple Awards contest. Their project was also selected by New York Restoration Project to win their Mermaid Award. The class submitted, under the direction of Mrs. Williams, the Team Leader/Science teacher, their entry about oyster farming. The project began in late February and involves raising oysters in an effort to reestablish the natural ecosystem of the Jamaica Bay. This year long project will have lasting effects on the community.
