PS 250 carried off a two-prong arts approach to the evening. First there was an opportunity to view the fruits of the visual arts program, curated by art teacher, Ms. DePasquale.

The performances also represented PS 250’s year in review as this was a selection of performances from the past school year.

Right after the students took a final bow, Principal RoseAnn LaCioppa thanked all the parents for sharing the talents of their children. Also in the audience was Nora Barnes, former principal of PS 250.
