Parent Engagement Initiative Trip to the One World Observatory

Thank you to all the parents and students who joined us on our 2nd Parent Engagement Trip. We had an amazing opportunity to go to the One World Observatory which is located all the way up at the top of the Freedom Tower! Everyone had an amazing experience as we went up to the 102nd floor in 47 seconds. I made sure all the students were in the proper place to catch me if I passed out. Luckily I survived. See that pic above? We were all the way up there!!!! YIKES!
