At Breakthrough New York, we want our amazing students to enjoy both academic and social success, and that’s why we want to make sure they have fun while learning.
On Friday, we launched our first “Fun Friday” event of the year, inviting all 7th and 8th grade students from our Brooklyn campus to attend. This was a chance for our students to put down the books and step away from the computers during this test-prep season, and hang out with one another.
Our theme was “A Fall Celebration". Students made “Dirt Cups” desserts with chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos and gummy worms, noshed on popcorn and other seasonal treats, and watched the classic movie, E.T.
It was a chance to mingle and have some fun, and we look forward to planning the next get-together.
