As Chinese New Year approaches next week, P.S. 105 – The Blythebourne School, celebrated early. As one of the largest elementary schools in Brooklyn, NY, P.S. 105 has a population of 1,800 students. 93% of the student population is Chinese, with 4% Hispanic, 1% white, and 2% multi-racial students. 57% of P.S. 105’s students are English Language Learners. Principal Johanna Castronovo, longtime supporter of Generation Ready, put together this assembly so that students had the opportunity to get in front of their peers, parents and community and shine all while learning about the Chinese culture.
Generation Ready has been working with P.S. 105 for years, providing Math and Literacy services to continue to enhance teacher effectiveness and student achievement. In fact, data from the most recent 2014 ELA and Math state tests show that P.S. 105 have significantly increased their scores compared to district, borough, and city comparisons.
Generation Ready was excited to be there during P.S. 105’s Chinese New Year celebrations, and Local News 12 was also at the event. Check out their coverage!
