When you enter in Queens you can feel a strong sense of community. I visited two Spanish dual language classes with Principal Geller and confirmed that they have all the PPE they need. Proud of seeing that our schools are promoting safe and healthy learning environments.

After painting with 2nd grade students at PS 130 this morning, I can see why loves his job so much! Social-emotional learning activities like this one encourage students to focus on their hopes and dreams for the school year, and express it using art.

For our children, a return to in-person schooling is also a return to more mental health and social service support. We are focused on addressing student and staff social-emotional needs across school communities (remote and blended) as part of everything we do.

Our schools are an awe-inspiring place of healing, as and I saw this morning at PS 130 in Brooklyn. They're helping students process their experiences of this year through activities like creating self-portraits and exploring the beauty of different skin colors.

It's the first day of in-person learning for thousands of middle and high school students! Nothing can replace in-person education, and it was pure magic this morning when we welcomed students and families at One World Middle School !
