This year's Bronx parent summit planning committee.

Bronx parents

Parents picked up information
about immigration law in the
exhibitor hall.

Dear Parents, grandparents and education activists,

I want to thank those of you who came out to the Bronx parent summit last weekend!

Over 400 parents, grandparents, guardians and education activists joined us at the Bronx borough office for a great day of workshops, exhibitors and networking.  I especially want to thank the planning committee, who worked tirelessly for months to put 
together this wonderful event.

If you didn't make it, I hope to see you at more Bronx parent events this school
year. And on that note, I want to tell you about a free event for college-bound
students and their families to get hands-on assistance filling out the Free
Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA completion event  hosted
by College Goal New York is this Saturday, Nov. 10, at Fordham University's
Hughes Hall on the Rose Hill Campus, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Directions »
