posted Jan 29, 2014, 6:17 PM by PS 172   [ updated Feb 26, 2014, 10:06 AM ]

On February 12th at 9:00 am, P.S. 172 will celebrate our 100th year of educating Brooklyn's children. Our students and teachers have been hard at work studying what life was like in 1914. The auditorium will be transformed into a museum showcasing the projects completed by students at all grade levels. At the assembly, students will unveil a P.S. 172 time capsule, model fashions from the decades, and perform dances and music from 1914. 

Following, on February 13th at 6:00 pm our students will perform "The Little Red Hen" set on a farm in Brooklyn 100 years ago. 

We hope you can join us for the festivities to celebrate the ongoing achievements of P.S. 172 students!
