Via Facebook we’ve received word about a Town Hall meeting on overcrowding at P.S. 8.
Here’s the PTA’s petition, which includes some very important issues about the school’s capacity and the impact of future housing development in the district (we’re looking at you planned library condos):
Make Your Voice Heard on PS8 Overcrowding
November 20, 6:30-8pm
Hillis Hall, Plymouth Church
57 Orange Street
Responding to concerns from our parents, the PTA is hosting a meeting on PS8 lower school overcrowding. Senator Daniel Squadron, Council Member Steve Levin, Assembly-woman elect Jo Anne Simon and Estelle Acquah from the DOE Office of District Planning will be there to hear our concerns: other elected officials will likely attend as well.
We need to turn out in force to let our elected officials know how concerned we are about current and future overcrowding and to push for short and long term solutions to their problem.
Please “invite” friends and help spread the word.
Please also read and sign two petitions
P.S. 8 parents – is the school doing a good job?
