Borough President Diaz & Fat Joe Distribute Sneakers To Students

Students at P.S. 146, M.S. 123, Accion Academy and I.S. 217 School of Performing Arts participated in this initiative throughout the school year, with the winning classes having shown improvements measured on a variety of factors such as student engagement and attendance.

As a result of their hard work, one class in each school has been chosen as the “most improved” in their respective schools, and will receive a brand new pair of sneakers courtesy of Fat Joe.
