Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer greeted students and parents at P.S. 189 in northern Washington Heights on Thursday, Sept. 7, the first day of the new school year.
Greeting students and parents, Brewer and her staff handed out help guides in both English and Spanish with contact information for school administrators, parent coordinators, and other key officials, to help parents remain engaged with their kids’ education and communicate directly with school leaders. While Brewer greeted families at P.S. 189, staff and volunteers from her office fanned out to more than 40 other schools across Manhattan to hand out help guides as well.
