Thank you to the 502 parents, students, teachers, and staff who voted in participatory budgeting (PB) this year! Everything is a bit harder during COVID, so we appreciate you showing up to make your voice heard.
The PA is committing now to include the top four projects in its budget for next year:
Free Food Pantry
Race & Equity Library
Lego Building Club
Student Green Team
We will reassess with the school administration later in the summer to determine if we can fund additional projects, once we know more about the school budget and the school reopening plans. If you’re able to, please donateto the Parent Association, to help us fund school and family needs during these uncertain times.
The full vote results are below, and you can read more about all of the projects here.
Special thank you to Megan Jonynas, Megan Demarkis, Irene Varon, and Principal McDonald for supporting PB and embracing democracy at PS 139! And thank you to the team of parent volunteers who helped develop the projects and engage families – Josh Lerner, Itzy Garay, Haymme Marin, Maria Duran, and the amazing school language liaisons!
