February 26, 2015 marked the first 100 days of school year 2014 – 2015. LYFE sites city-wide celebrated this important milestone from February 23rd – March 6th. The goal of celebrating the 100th day of school for LYFE was to celebrate family engagement and encourage academic persistence.
Check out celebration highlights from four of our sites!
- LYFE at Paul Robeson celebrated two families that had outstanding attendance during the first 100 days of school. As a reward for perfect attendance, Student Parent Yamilka Davis was rewarded with an annual membership to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum for her and her daughter. Student parent Stephanie Lahen’s attendance earned her 2 movie tickets!
- LYFE at Prospect Heights created a 100 leaf flower that showcased each child’s developmental milestones during the first 100 days of school.
- Mrs. Pratt, LYFE social worker at High School for Environmental Studies encouraged student parents and staff to come up with 100 positive words and sayings, which were displayed on a chart for everyone to see.
- The Far Rockaway LYFE site celebrated with a pajama celebration. Thanks to a donation of books and pajamas from Pajama Program, each parent received a gift bag with books and pajamas for their child.

We are very proud of our student parents’ commitment to their education and role as parents over the first 100 days of school. We are excited about the goals our student parents have set for the reminder of the school year. We look forward to supporting our families with reaching their short and long term goals, and of course, celebrating along the way!
