Calling all parents and families in Northern Brooklyn! Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 1, for two great Brooklyn events from Town Square (a volunteer-based organization that plans family events and programs in Williamsburg and Greenpoint): The NYC PTA Expo and Schoolfest, both happening at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Northern Brooklyn.
Both events are held at the same time, from 12-4pm, and your ticket to either event will enable you to benefit from both events!
For North Brooklyn families in search of the school that’s right for their children–early childhood education up through high school–Schoolfest is a great event at which to meet local schools and enrichment service providers from Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Schoolfest also includes some exciting and informational workshops: Clara Hemphill of Inside Schools will present on the NYC elementary school admissions and middle schools admissions, and Maurice Frumkin of NYC Admissions Solutions will present on NYC High School admissions.
Also taking place on October 1 is the NYC PTA Expo–a great opportunity for PTA and PA leaders from NYC’s 1,800 schools to learn about resources, gain insights, and network with NYC PTA and PA parents, educators, elected officials, and more. Attendees will be able to attend workshops on fundraising, budgeting, and more, and will have the chance to meet with organizations that can offer invaluable advice, services, and products. There will also be free raffles for great prizes.
Attendees are encouraged to wear their school shirts and colors!
Finally, for new and expectant North Brooklyn parents, Town Square is also hosting the Brooklyn Baby Fest on Sunday, October 2. This event is a great opportunity for new and expectant parents to discover new products, check out the best baby products, meet other new parents, and win some great prizes.
