Happy Birthday, Dr. Alain L. Locke

On September 15, 2014, we celebrated the birthday our school’s namesake,  Dr. Alain L. Locke with special guest, Dr. Jacoby Carter.  Dr. Carter is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at CUNY: John Jay College.  His research include social and political philosophy, value theory (ethics) and pragmatism. More specifically, Dr. Carter’s interest involves the work of Alain Locke and John Dewey. He is co-editor of Philosophic Values and World Citizenship: Locke to Obama and Beyond, and author of “Environmental Pragmatism, Global Warming, and Climate Change,” among other works.  We thank you, Dr. Carter, for taking the time out to share the wonderful stories of the late Dr. Locke with our school.

So Tell Me About Your Career and How You Got There

On Monday, June 16, 2014, professionals from fire fighters to reporters, to chefs and entrepreneurs, had an intimate conversation with our students to share their stories about their various careers! Students learned about the hard work needed to get to middle school, to high school, to college and beyond. It was very informative and we are grateful to folks who took the time out of their work days to visit us.

Thank you!

We Have an Outdoor Farm!

Our friends from City Year brought over 50 corporate volunteers to the school on Thursday, June 12, 2014 to build our Schoolyard Urban Farm (that’s 5 garden beds, 4 wheelchair accessible beds, 2 demo beds, 2 picnic tables, and 8 benches) in ONE day!  Our partner Grow to Learn also came to help prune trees to make sure we have enough sunlight and some of our students had an opportunity to help with painting.  It was unbelievable to watch our dreams become reality.  Thank you, City Year, thank you Grow to Learn!

PS…Our resident A/V specialist, Mr. Mort, is in the process of editing the time lapse video but here’s a picture for now.


Our Urban Farming Program is designed, taught, and managed by Ms. Wong.  Make sure to follow (Like) our indoor Classroom Hydroponic Farm AND/OR outdoor Schoolyard Urban Farm on Facebook to see what’s happening now :) // www.
