Culinary Arts Club Takes the Cake

Culinary Arts Club Takes the Cake

On Friday, our Culinary Arts club got creative & crafty with their baked goods. Using their own frosting, pastry bags & spatulas, C-Arts students learned what it takes to finish their masterpieces. Sweet presentation!

Our Culinary Arts club is a hands-on program where students learn career skills — during regular classes, and during the Culinary after school program.

Our Warrior volleyball team tasted victory Friday night against Achievement First in two matches scoring 25-10 and 25-11.

After a long train ride to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, our ladies showed up with skill, grace, and grit – defeating the home team two matches in a row. Thanks to all of our athletes for showing the true Warrior spirit, and to our coaches Chris and Diana for guiding these ladies to another victory away from home. GO WARRIORS!

Back in session at Innovation!

On a gorgeous sunny morning in East Harlem, Innovation welcomed back our upperclass students, and embraced our newest cohort, the class of 2023. Students and their parents & guardians gathered outside in the courtyard, in front of the educational complex. They were greeted by Innovation staff as they passed through the entrance gates, on their way to meet their teachers and classmates. Everyone was feted with fresh coffee, juice, bagels and breakfast pastries.

“I’m feeling a lot of positive energy from everyone and I believe a great year lies ahead for the entire Innovation Community,” said Innovation’s Executive Director, Stephen Falla Riff.

Deloitte Impact Day

Deloitte Impact Day

Innovation students had a chance to learn from volunteers at one of the world’s largest consulting firms, Deloitte, this Friday during their annual Impact Day.

As a part of our ongoing partnership between SEP and Deloitte, over 30 volunteers visited our math & science classes on Friday. Deloitte hosted an innovation workshop – describing the consulting industry, how it relates to social media, and impacts technology – and encouraged our students to think like consultants and become better problem solvers.

Innovation would like to thank all Deloitte volunteers for spending quality time with our students and making a huge impact here at our school!
