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.


Public School 47 held its annual dance festival on June 3rd. This year’s theme was, “Sounds of New York.”  Each class performed an original dance choreographed by students and staff.  Well, all except the sixth grade who performed the “Cha Cha Slide” made famous at the Brooklyn Cyclones games.  As a special treat, Martin Harber, better known as Party Marty at the Cyclones’ stadium, attended the dance festival to support the students.  There was a great turnout of parents for this wonderful event. Public School 47 held its annual dance festival on June 3rd. This year’s theme was, “Sounds of New York.”  Each class performed an original dance choreographed by students and staff.  Well, all except the sixth grade who performed the “Cha Cha Slide” made famous at the Brooklyn Cyclones games.  As a special treat, Martin Harber, better known as Party Marty at the Cyclones’ stadium, attended the dance festival to support the students.  There was a great turnout of parents for this wonderful event.
