Dear All Families of East Village Community School, the Children’s Workshop School, and the Spectrum School Community:
Did you know that our school building is 100 years old?
Named for Anna Howard Shaw (1847-1919), a doctor, minister and leader in the struggle for women’s voting rights, what was PS 61 opened its doors in September 1913. By 1919, PS61 had 2550 students! During World War I, the school was an induction center and in World War II, it was a community center. The private school Little Red Schoolhouse got its start in PS61 classrooms in 1928. In 1952, PS 61 was featured in a Life magazine article as the most overcrowded school in New York City–2011 students in 1470 seats! With journalists present to document its safety, the Salk polio vaccine was tested in PS61 kids in 1954…
This is just some of the rich history we will celebrate this coming fall!
