Important Meeting for Lefferts Gardens Charter

The  Lefferts Gardens Charter School has asked me to announce that the date has been set for their public hearing for a location. It will be held on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at 6 pm at PS 92, which is located at 601 Parkside Avenue between Bedford and Rogers Avenues. If  you can only attend one function this year to support LGCS, this is it!

They'd  like to ask all of you to come out to let the DOE know that you want the school sited at PS 92. Both supporters and opponents of this proposal will have the opportunity to speak publicly at this meeting. The final determination will be based on the amount of community  support that we demonstrate. This means that the number of supporters who attend will have a direct  bearing on the DOE’s perception of the community’s desire to see the Lefferts Gardens Charter School open in the neighborhood in September.

For  those of you who cannot attend, please encourage your friends and neighbors to come. They want to circulate the word as far and wide throughout District 17 as possible. 

They also ask you to send a letter of support to
Even if you have  already submitted a letter in the past, they urge you to write to this address again and let the DOE know you want the Lefferts Gardens Charter  School housed in this DOE space. The amount of community interest that you show at this hearing can make or break the efforts of the last two years.

If you have any questions about this meeting, please feel free to contact  Renee Ciccone  or Marc Magnus~Sharpe
