Chess Team: K12 National Champions!

We wake up today in Orlando as National Champions! Our seventh grade team scored an historic upset by toppling several higher rated teams to add to the teams mighty roster of wins. One player led the way by scoring a perfect 7-0 score on the section which in the twenty year history of the team has never been accomplished.

Our Epic Murals

Greenpoint Innovations teamed up with South Africa-based street artist Sonny (Instagram, website) and Brooklyn-based artist duo ASVP (Instagram, website) to produce two thematically-aligned murals within the contexts of climate change, deforestation, biodiversity, and indigenous people on the walls of Intermediate School 318.

In addition to Greenpoint Innovations and its partners, special thanks to the many individuals and organizations who supported this project, including the NYC Department of Education and I.S. 318’s leadership and PTA, Assemblyman Joe Lentol, Councilman Stephen Levin, Town Square BK, Forest Trends, and the NYC Mayor’s Office.
