The Parents’ Association is hosting its annual Culture & Food Festival on February 1st, 2020, from 4-7 PM, celebrating our diverse backgrounds through special family recipes and traditions. The P.S. 144 community includes speakers of over 30 languages, with families hailing from all around the world.
We want you to participate! Please bring a dish that reflects your culture, near or far. You can also share your traditional clothing, music, dance, crafts, or anything else that will help enlighten our community about your unique heritage.
In addition to food and traditional contributions, we also need help organizing and executing the festival!
Our mission is to provide maximum educational opportunities for all children at P.S. 144 through an environment which nurtures children and families, maximizes opportunities for individual growth and encourages mutual involvement, responsibility and accountability of the school, home and community. As a school focusing on integrating arts and technology throughout our curriculum, we are dedicated to preparing youngsters for life in the 21st century through literacy, telecommunications, scientific investigations and social interactions enhanced by collaborations with museums and other cultural institutions. We will work with our partners to open doors to the world of the arts for our school community.
