CM James Awards Grants to MS113 To Provide Air Conditioning for Summer


May 14, 2009

The Ronald Edmonds Learning Center / MS 113 and Council Member Letitia James host a Press

Event to Announce the Turning On of Air Conditioning Units this Friday, May 15, at 9:30 am

Ronald Edmonds Learning Center/MS 113 is one of the top performing arts middle schools in New York City. Students are able to major in Dance, Theatre Arts, Vocal, Band, Art and Technology. In addition, the students outperform all, if not most of the other schools in the district on both the NYS Reading and Math exams. Principal Khalek Kirkland serves as proud principal of a school he describes as “a good school on its way to greatness.”

Recently, Council Member James provided a grant to MS 113 to provide air conditioning units for the entire school. Before the grant, the spring and summer brought temperatures to the classrooms that were not suitable for instruction. Now students and teachers will be able to get back to their precious instructional time on warm days; in the past, teachers were forced to leave the classroom due to risk of health concerns.

The entire Ronald Edmonds Learning Center community is appreciative for the continued support that Council Member James is able to provide to the students, teachers and staff of MS 113.
