Back to School

Back-to-School with Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez, Councilman Oswald Feliz, and State Senator Jamaal Bailey

By Robert Press

It was a beautiful Friday afternoon for a bookbag Giveaway, and when school let out at PS 96 students walked over to Bronx Park East to get a new Bookbag filled with school supplies donated by the Carpenters union, Assemblywoman Fernandez, Councilman Feliz, and State Senator Jamaal Bailey. Also on hand were Earl the Balloon man and Chussie the Face Painter were also on hand for the children. 

After dismissal students picked up their new bookbags loaded with school supplies they need, got a toy balloon, and if they wanted got their face painted. 


Everything is ready for the children. 




Earl the Balloon man got an early start as almost every child wanted a toy balloon.
Members of the Bailey Bunch stood in for Senator Bailey, and Councilman Feliz was down in City Hall.
Above and Below, Assemblywoman Fernandez seemed to have a way with the little children.
