Scrumptious Tasty Treats at Nov. 21st Bake Sale

You have got to check out these pictures from the PTA's bake sale on Thursday, November 21st, 2013. At the end of all of the lunch periods, only crumbs were left. Talk about a rainbow of color.

You can never underestimate a pumpkin brownie. I never even knew what one was until I tried it. Talk about "melt-in-your-mouth" goodness. 

Such a bake sale could not have happened without parents volunteering to add an expanded range of luscious treats. Ms. Melissa Greene, PTA President, speaks for all of us when she says, "a big thank you to all of the wonderful parents who volunteered their time and effort to make the goods and bring them in.

PTA Meeting on College Information

Applying to college is a long, detailed process that requires persistence. Any information that can help alleviate the process is a blessing.

Thanks to Jennifer Miller and Leo Gordon for working together to put on a solid presentation for the PTA on Saturday, November 9th in which they shared elements about how parents can help their children apply for college.  The hearty brunch was courtesy of MADE - McKee Advertising and Design Enterprise, which is overseen by Mr. Gordon and run by the top upperclassmen in the Graphic Arts and Commercial Design Program.

Ground Breaking Ceremony 10/31/13

Councilman Oddo attended the ground breaking ceremony for a new field on the Staten Island Tech campus. This is the first time that I have participated in a ground breaking ceremony. 
29 McKee students were in attendance. The ring of balloons represents both school colors intertwined, which is just like the athletics programs. The colors of McKee are green and gold. The colors of SIT are black and gold. Both schools join together to put teams on the road. 

The new principal at SIT is Mark Erlenwein. Yours truly is on the left. It was a lovely day and the students, as always looked great. Get a look below of the "before picture" of the field.  I know there are proponents who feel strongly that it is great to play on a natural field. The coaches have stories, way too many stories, of what they had to do to make the field safe for the students to use.
