The Ellington Poets Perfrom at NYU (VIDEO)

The Ellington Poets perform at the 2014 No Place for Hate Recognition Ceremony.
No place for Hate is an initiative of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) that offers students educators, administrators and family members the opportunity to work together to combat prejudice and enhance a culture of respect in their schools and communities.  Recently, the ADL awarded the seventy-six schools that participated in this anti-bullying initiative.

This year,  The Ellington Poets performed in front of an audience of students, teachers and honored guests at NYU's Performing Arts Theater!  Under the direction of Mr. Cantu, PS4's Dean and ESL teacher, the talented group of 4th and 5th grade poets were chosen to perform their rendition of Imagine by John Lennon.  Congratulations, boys and girls!

Take a look at the video below or click here to see a video of their entire performance!  Special thanks to the ADL's Associate Education Director and No Place For Hate Coordinator, Jason Sirois for his continued support of PS4.  We love you too, Mr. Jason!
