P.S. 205 in the News

Helping Haiti


“Once we heard about the devastation in Haiti, we knew we had to do something to help,” said Nayalyn Negron, president of the P.S.205 student council in the Bronx. “How could we raise enough to ease the suffering of the Haitian people?”

It’s a question that students—and school communities—across New York City have been asking since an earthquake devastated Haiti January 12. Since then, schools have been singing, baking, designing, and organizing to raise money for the victims.

“Our school raised $2,008,” Negron explained proudly. “We designed, produced, and sold bookmarks and also had a bake sale.”
