This Thursday at PS 124, students will cut the ribbon on their brand new bathrooms.
It’s an unlikely site for a grand-opening ceremony, but the renovations are truly cause for celebration. Parents and community members worked diligently throughout this past year to improve the elementary school’s bathrooms, which had fallen into disrepair with missing stall doors and damaged tile floors. Their efforts, which were covered twice in the New York Times, came to fruition when the school won $150,000 through community vote in City Councilmember Brad Lander’s first ever Participatory Budgeting initiative.
The ribbon-cutting will take place tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Lander will join the students in the ceremony, along with principal Annabelle Martinez.
