A Message from the Head of School

Dear BSA Community,

 

This week I wanted to share with you an article on Remote Learning Tips to help your child while learning at home. We know that these are stressful conditions for you and your child and we are here to help.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at contactbsa@broomestreetacademy.org if we can do anything to help at this time.

Best,

Ms. Silberman

Enrichment Opportunity for Families Saturday, 1/30/2021

INCLUDEnyc is hosting a virtual event for families this Saturday. The INCLUDEnyc Fair is New York City’s largest annual fair for young people with disabilities, where you can connect with summer camps, recreational programs, supports, and services from the safety and convenience of your own home.

Brazen’s online, cloud-based platform makes it easy and fun for you to participate. After registering, you’ll be able to explore the available information and opportunities and participate in 1-on-1 text-based, audio, or video chats with representatives from participating organizations. Get your questions answered and cultivate new opportunities for your child.

The INCLUDEnyc Fair sends an important message about inclusion and access for young people and their families who may not otherwise have known many of these programs were available to them.

The login information and details are below:
