New Public Elementary School Coming to 500 Block 

This is an email to the Block Association from Alloy Development:

"DOE [New York City Department of Education] has decided on a name for the new elementary school: PS 456. 


It will be a sister school to the Brooklyn New School, which is in Carrol Gardens, and I understand to be a highly sought-after school with a long wait list.


They are still finalizing details, but are starting to do open houses, run by the Brooklyn New School. Thought you would be interested."

[End of Alloy Email]

The school will reportedly start only with kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year. On the morning the new school opens we should hold an event right across from the elementary school entrance, where we offer coffee and doughnuts to the parents dropping their kids off for kindergarten. We can coordinate with the school on some type of welcome event.
