In case you didn’t know, PPAS has a Black Student Union run entirely by students. They would love to get more freshman and sophomores involved. If you are interested and want to learn more, email the BSU President, Imani.
The Black Student Union meets on Wednesdays at 4:30
Our mission statement: Anyone who is interested in science and/or wants to be in the medical field, come join the Pre-med club! In our club you will learn about what doctors do, the kinds of places they work, jobs they have, and tools and resources they use to help people stay well or get better when they are sick. We’ll talk about what you can do to help get on a path to apply to medical school and learn about medicine in your community.
Hi, all! My name is Gabby. I’m a ninth grader with interest in both performing arts and veterinary studies.
I am starting the vet club at PPAS this year and would love it if you could join. You don’t have to want to be a vet to join this club; you don’t even have to know anything about animals… hopefully you do, though, because you are one! All that’s required is that you care for animals and the environment. Our meetings will be bi-weekly, every other Thursday from 5:00-5:45. Our first meeting will be Thursday, December 3, at 5:00 PM. The focus of the vet club is studying anything relating to endangered species, prevention of animal cruelty, and animal wellness in general. There will be a different focus every week in the google classroom (e.g., petitions to sign, documentaries to watch, etc.). I will post a topic and resources every other Tuesday for us to learn and then talk about in our Zoom meetings. Here is the Google Classroom link. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns regarding the vet club.
If you’re interested in food, welcome to the PPAS Foodie Club!
NYC is quite a melting pot when it comes to experiencing cuisines from all around the world. Whether you are a picky or adventurous eater, you are encouraged to contribute to our community by sharing your passions for all things food. How can you contribute? Below are just a few of many things!
Try a new restaurant and blog about it here. Support the local businesses and spread the word giving us opportunities to check them out!
Want to try a particular cuisine? Ask about it here and we can recommend some good local places!
Share some photos of the food from restaurants you visit or photos of homemade dishes (including the recipes is always a plus!).
Post information on opportunities to donate food or to get involved in some community service by volunteering at shelters/soup kitchens.
Provide us recommendations on food related shows.
Write about the connections between food and your culture.
If you are interested in joining the Foodie Club please contact Mr. Perlmutter at firstname.lastname@example.org
Be on the lookout for future updates from us. Looking forward to this, and we hope you get to enjoy the club throughout the year!
