Toys for Tots

    During the month of December 2010, the Ericsson Eagles Leo’s Club from John Ericsson Middle School 126, Magnet School for Environmental Engineering sponsored a “Toys for Tots” toy drive. They were able to collect over 100 toys from students, parents and staff members. All the toys collected were given out by Santa to the children of Francis of Paola Learning Center. The Ericsson Leo club members volunteered numerous hours collecting and distributing the toys. The Leo’s are supported by the Greenpoint Lions Club a non-profit organization who has worked with our students, staff and families over the past three years. John Ericsson Middle School 126 is the first Leo’ Club in North Brooklyn.

    The principal, Rosemary Ochoa of John Ericsson Middle School 126, Magnet School for Environmental Engineering strongly believes that community service builds a child’s overall character and confidence. A strong learning environment combined with community service helps our students understand the world around them and the importance of helping our neighborhood and its residents.

2010 Winter Concert

Our Winter Concert at MS 126 was a great success and a wonderful celebration of students' achievements. This concert provided a good support for all student performances.  There were a combination of several genres in this concert, such as instrumentalists, singers, dancers, solo performances, rap, and poetry, which created an enjoyable environment for those listening and watching. It was a pleasure to hear singers like Alejandra Negron, Kayleen Pacheco & Chelsy Handel, Rube Giboyeaux, Ariana Acosta & Savannvah, Janet Chamorro, and watch the performance by Ashley Estevez & Judely Collado. The dance group directed by Ms. Latesha Powells added another dimension to the concert performance. It is important to mention that the poetry and rap compositions by individual students have worked hard from September through December on their compositions for this event. Ruben Giboyeaux wrote his own poetry and created his own rap music beat. Judely Collado wrote and read her own poem while accompanied on the piano by fellow classmate Ashley Estevez.

We are looking forward to the Spring Concert and celebrate more achievements in the months to come.

This concert was made possible with the support of Ms. Ochoa, Ms. Chen, Mr. Sefa, Ms. Schiff, Ms. Powells, Mr. Cheng, Mr. Chen, and Ms. Pollack.
