October 29, 2019 — Middle School Panel
PS 183 will host a Middle School Panel, on October 29th at 6:00 pm. The Panel will consist of 7th Grade students who have moved on from 183. It will be an informal Q&A session for parents and our current fifth grade students. It is a great way to learn what Middle School is really like from the Middle Schoolers who attend them!
