Build Schools Now is seeking volunteers for this Saturday’s Taste of the Seaport food festival. Build will be gathering signatures and spreading the word about the fight being waged by parents at PS 343 Peck Slip School to use unoccupied Department of Education conference rooms as classrooms for the first and second grades. Currently, sections within these grades are being forced to share classrooms, divided only by six-foot-tall partitions that do little to block out noise and other distractions. If you can help Build anytime between 11AM-4PM, please e-mail Wendy Chapman or Buxton Midyette.

For background on the PS 343 situation, see:

The Taste of the Seaport is an outdoor food festival that benefits the neighborhood’s two public elementary schools: PS 397 Spruce Street School and PS 343 Peck Slip School.
