S.T.A.R. Power for P.S. 63

PS 63 as STAR Academy

The Local’s Stephen Rex Brown Tweeted from a meeting of Community Board 3’s Youth & Education Committee last night: “And the name change to S.T.A.R. Academy at P.S. 63 gets the green light from C.B. 3. Members of the board decline the celebratory free doughnuts.” The unanimous vote of approval will now be considered by the full board, and then the District 1 Community Education Council for ultimate approval. At the meeting, a fifth grader said the new name “brings out the star inside. William McKinley? It’s just boring … He was assassinated?”
