PTA Harlem Wizards Assembly

The PTA Harlem Wizards WizFit Challenge came to a conclusion on Friday, February 17th. DP and Big J from the Wizards came to Huber Street School and helped the students get fit and have some fun.

Thank you to our PTA for organizing this amazing event. The children had a BLAST! Thanks to the entire Huber Street extended community, we raised over $14,000 for our school.

The top two earning classes (that won a field trip to the park) are Ms. Choj's 1st grade class and Mrs. Lopena's 4th grade class. The top earning student is Reagan Gootee from Mrs. Hanrahan's 2nd grade class. Reagan will be serving as Principal-for-the-Day with Mr. Valente!
