Help Rebuild Yonkers Schools Contest!

Dear community,


As you may know Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers Public Schools have launched the next step in the Rebuild Yonkers Schools Campaign. This time we are calling on our students to be part of our cause!


Last year, with the overwhelming support of our community, Yonkers was successful in its first step in rebuilding Yonkers Public Schools. Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature adopted and approved legislation enabling the city to form the Yonkers Joint Schools Construction Board, the official steering committee that will oversee the repairing and rebuilding of Yonkers’ 39 schools. But that was just the beginning.


Our next step is to secure the funding to rebuild our schools. Please continue to support our campaign to Rebuild Yonkers Schools by having your students, teachers and staff share our latest advocacy video and tag our State Legislators and Governor with #Fund2Rebuild #RebuildYonkersSchools #Rebuild(NameofYourSchool). The school with the most hashtags, shares and retweets on Facebook and Twitter will be the winner of a special presentation from Mayor Mike Spano.
