Roosevelt Island PS/IS 217 PTA, Principal & Brownie Girl Scouts Honored By Council Member Ben Kallos At State Of The District Address
Roosevelt Island's NYC Council Member Ben Kallos held his State of the District address last Sunday, January 10.
Roosevelt Island resident Christina Delfico shares these photos and reports on the Kallos State of the District Address:
City Council Member Ben Kallos honored PS IS 217, Girl Scout troop leaders Janine Schaefer, and Aiesha Eleusizov, and Roosevelt Islanders at his State of the District event on January 10, 2016 for winning the 2015 Participatory Budget Vote. Roosevelt Island's community garnered half a million dollars towards the STEM Green Roof Project.
There were loud cheers when Principal Beckman and PTA president Olga Shchuchinov were mentioned along with 217 students and the Brownies and Girl Scouts from troops 3001, 3244 and 3245 for their winning efforts.
Also, Roosevelt Island Brownie Girl Scout Emily Eleusizov discussed school lunch quality with Council Member Kallos.
The hour long event was attended by the Manhattan Borough President Brewer, Assembly Member Seawright, Senator Krueger, and Comptroller Scott Stringer who enjoyed several photos of Roosevelt Islanders and 217 on the big screen. What a great way to start 2016.
