The New York City Department of Sanitation presented PS 47 with the 2008 Golden Apple Award. The school received the award for its efforts in the Team Up to Clean Up campaign. Students in grades six through eight, teachers and paraprofessionals worked together to cut and remove Asian bittersweet vines that were strangling the trees at the Jamaica Wildlife Refuge. With the help of parent volunteer Faye Zuzworsky, the students recycled the vines and turned them into wreaths, which were sold as fundraisers for the school.
