WEDJ PCS Octoberfest 

Last evening the WEDJ PCS had its first open house performance. It was truly amazing to see the kids perform, especially the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Even one of the teachers joined in when it was the older students turn to go on-stage.

My major impression is that the school is achieving, in only 6 weeks, what it sought out to do. You could see these young people gain confidence and self-esteem as parents clapped in response to their singing and dancing. These experiences almost certainly assist them as they go out into the world to make names for themselves. As I said to Mary Robbins, the school's art partnership director, NYU - here they come!
