PS 179: Chapter Description

Our GEMs all proudly hail from the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. While some of our G.E.M.s are more outspoken than others, they all share a passion to improve and impact their school and community at large. In addition, as 5th graders or “burgundies” as they are called, there is a greater sense of responsibility, as they are expected to be role models to all students in grades 3K – 4th. Our G.E.M.s also serve as ambassadors to our school throughout the year and for various functions. This year on top of volunteering, their overarching goal is to create a safer and cleaner community.
