Halsey Nights

The COVID-19 virus impacted the United States, and NYC was forced to close schools. Halsey JHS 157 believes that socialization is imperative for youth development. Halsey JHS 157 takes pride in our faculty not only being amazing teachers but they are also positive adult role models for our students.

We needed to get that socialization back in some form. That is when Halsey Nights was created. A talk show during the week, sometimes more than once a week, at night where teachers would show off some of their special skills and invite students and their families to be a part of it through the wonderful world of remote learning. Using Zoom we have been able to reach our families and provide some socialization and a small distraction to the troubling times we are all facing.
