P.S. 221 is the first Hip2B Healthy School in New York City and nationally. Seeds in the Middle, named by fourth graders in Crown Heights, partners with P.S. 221 as a pilot to integrate healthy choices, environmental education, cooking, greening, the arts, and more hands-on learning into the curriculum to inspire students to excel in math, literacy, social studies, science and more. Universities are working with teachers on professional development and Seeds in the Middle empowers parents, too, to advocate for their children and fundraise effectively. Please see seedsinthemiddle.org to see the exciting programs at P.S. 221, funded by donations and volunteerism from corporations like Home Depot, Whole Foods Market and many more. We work closely with very talented, dedicated and hardworking faculty at P.S. 221, an inspiring model for any educational institution, anywhere.
