It was a morning that included performances by students and a few tears as a slide show recalled how teachers stepped up to help the community after Superstorm Sandy. On October 25th, PS/MS 43 hosted the 1st Annual Remembrance of Hurricane Sandy – “The Healing Continues – Moving on with Hope.”

Other highlights included presentations to police officers Kevin Campbell and Maurice Roper of the 101st Precinct community affairs unit, the planting of two new black cherry trees on the school’s grounds and the dedication of a mural done by students in Texas.

Also attending the ceremony was Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder, Councilman Donovan Richards and Bishop David Benke of St. Peters Lutheran Church.
