College Awareness Day - 2016

Moses S., a 12th grade student leader from MLK High School of Arts & Technology, spoke to Mr. Diaz's class about college.

On January 27, City schools celebrated College Awareness Day, a new citywide public schools event meant to encourage families to talk with their children about college and other post-secondary opportunities. College Awareness Day seeks to help students of all ages understand that attending college is attainable, affordable, and can help them achieve successful and fulfilling careers and lives. Research shows that college degree recipients are healthier, earn higher salaries, have better financial security, and serve their communities more often than their less educated peers.

To celebrate the occasion, teachers at PS4 wore apparel from their former/favorite colleges and shared details about their college experiences with their students.  Special thanks to Ms. McMahon from Martin Luther King High School of the Arts and Technology who brought student leaders who gave presentations to our young scholars!  They spoke about the importance of going to college and answered questions.  Click here to read what Chancellor Fariña said about the importance of going to college and take a look at the slide show below for some highlights from this special day!
