We got a great note from Laura Peynado, the principal at University Neighborhood Middle School. Thanks for sharing!
On Tuesday, November 6th, the UNMS staff used the Chancellor's Development Day to assist with clean-up in the New Dorp area of Staten Island. We were met by the scenes of need, and destruction brought on by Hurricane Sandy, and motivated by the resilience of the residents of New Dorp. They were happy to see us and we were privileged to help. We consider the day our school motto "in action": Together We Make the Difference! Take a look at some images from the day, including a final special message from the residents to the rest of us: http://unmsrocks-ofjag.poster...
We will keep you posted as our community continues to respond to the needs of fellow New Yorkers affected by Sandy. With gratitude on behalf of the UNMS Community,
