WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

We have a day for giving thanks. #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Why don’t you help by giving to our amazing school?  Donate now at www.ps77lowerlab.org http://www.nycharities.org/give/donate.aspx?cc=1705  or hand in your pledge drive form that was backpacked last week!

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Asking intelligent and provocative questions and teaching students to make knowledge their own are the essence of the Lab School’s philosophy and the key element to our school’s approach. Accessing information is the first step in constructing knowledge. Students are encouraged to listen carefully to differing perspectives and to reflect on what they’ve learned and how they’ve learned it. Students learn to incorporate a variety of approaches to build a repertoire of strategies for understanding and evaluating information. As a result, they begin to develop an understanding of the learning process itself. Support Lower Lab! www.ps77lowerlab.org http://www.nycharities.org/give/donate.aspx?cc=1705
