As part of our effort to expand our partnership with the NYPD and build meaningful relationships between officers and students, we are excited to announce the first ever TEAM UP TUESDAY took place on May 17, 2016. Through this interactive event, students participated in a variety of activities focused on teamwork and leadership that was led by officers from the 107th Police Precinct.
PS 131 was been selected as one of 360 elementary schools to participate in this initiative. On Team Up! Tuesday, police officers from the City’s 77 precincts met with students at five local elementary schools, where they engaged them in productive activities, ranging from arts and crafts to reading.
By participating in these activities, officers and students are fostering new connections and highlight Team Up! Tuesday’s themes of teamwork and leadership. Students were also be able to hear directly from officers about their own experiences and learn about the importance of being a member of a community as well as a strong leader.
