On Thursday, November 30, 2017, The New Pioneers of Rock/Jazz, delivered a top notch performance at Poughkeepsie High School to benefit the Teen Closet. The New Pioneers of Rock/Jazz is a high school student improv group, spearheaded by some of PCSD’s finest and most talented teachers: Joe North, David Laffin, and Jason Petagine. The group performed original student compositions embellished with improvised student and faculty solos. The show was a BIG SUCCESS, and it enabled the Teen Closet to raise $650 and bags of much needed personal hygiene items. Teen Closet is a non-profit organization started by three PCSD teachers.Teen Closet relies on the generosity of donors and a partnership with the Poughkeepsie City School District to provide personal hygiene products, undergarments, winter essentials, and emergency food relief to students in need so to enable them to come to school feeling healthy, secure, confident and ready to learn. A closet currently exists within Poughkeepsie High School and Poughkeepsie Middle School.
Teen Closet shirts are available for a $10 donation. We currently have Medium and Large available, but will order more in there is interest. Email Shanna Andrawis at firstname.lastname@example.org
A big THANK YOU to all involved in making this a great event!
