On April 12th, a group of students and staff members volunteered for Spring New York Cares Day. We cleaned and revitalized Franz Sigel Park in the Bronx. The park ranger was incredibly impressed with our effort, determination, and teamwork. We didn't realize it at the time, but we were later featured on the Channel 4, 6:00pm news. It was fun to be recognized on TV. We also got to meet a famous volunteer, actor Josh Duhamel (star of Transformers and husband of singer, Fergie.) We had a great time working together and giving back to the community. It was a wonderful day of giving back!
