Meet our Comfort Dog PARKER!!!

Our school is part of the NYC Department of Education’s comfort dog program. Parker, a Golden Retriever Border Collie Mix, has joined our school community in the 2016-2017 school year.  Parker is a friendly dog who loves being around children and adults. Parker will be included in classroom lessons on social-emotional learning, resiliency, and human-animal interaction. We look forward to seeing the positive impact that Parker will have once again in our school’s culture and climate this school year.

About The Lyric Lab:

The Lyric Lab has been a program in the making for the past 15 years. The founder, Raymond Ramirez, has worked as a consultant for various arts programs and began using Hip Hop and recording students in the late 1990s. Working initially with S.C.A.N. NY (Supportive Children's Advocacy Network) at the JHS 99 Beacon Program in East Harlem, and at various schools for Teachers and Writers Collaborative throughout the city, the Hip Hop workshop was born. Over the years the name has changed until finally The Lyric Lab was established in the Fall of 2016.
