Our Central Brooklyn Ascend Middle School students and principal were featured on News 12 New York this weekend for their efforts to raise money for hurricane relief in Haiti. CBAMS is launching a one-month, schoolwide coin drive, with each class competing against each other to fill their coin jars with the most change. At the end of the drive, CBAMS Principal Leyde St. Leger will personally take the coins to Haiti to make sure they get into the hands of those in need. We’re so proud of the CBAMS students, teachers, and staff for their integrity and sense of community, for recognizing the need of others and for reaching beyond their classrooms with their endeavors.
