The HOUR OF CODE
at PS 230


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13


Congratulations to our 5th Grade Coders!

We live in a world shaped by technology. Our children’s ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. That’s why our school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during the National Computer Science Education Week.





PS 230 students learn "The Art of the Brick" with Mr. Nathan Sawaya

In late August, Ms. Brill created a Donors Choose page seeking art supplies for her second and third grade students.  Who should respond but Nathan Sawaya, the Lego artist best known for his recent exhibition "The Art of the Brick."  During the first week of school, Mr. Sawaya met with students in Ms. Brill's art class, told them the story of how he became a lego artist and showed them examples of some of his masterpieces!  The children were fascinated, and then delighted to discover that Mr. Sawaya had also brought boxes of art supplies for their classroom.

Please click on the link above to view Mr. Sawaya's blog entry on his visit to PS 230.

Congratulations, Ms. Brill!  And, Thank You to the Lego Master, Mr. Nathan Sawaya.

Many of our teachers have created Donors Choose pages, seeking supplies for their classrooms and special projects.  If you would like to support PS 230 teachers, please visit donorschoose.org and type "ps 230 brooklyn" in the keyword search.
