ps 110

There’s a big celebration at P.S. 110 tomorrow in celebration of the Lower East Side elementary school’s 110th anniversary. The event at the Florence Nightingale School, 285 Delancey St., is sponsored by the parent teacher association.

The planning committee has done a lot of work to document the school’s history and to reach former students and teachers. A highlight will be a documentary-style film prepared for the occasion. There will also be a food festival, called “Lower Eats Side,” representing different ethnic cultures.

PTA President Arthur Shettle said, “We have students of Dominican, Serbian, Spanish, Trinidadian, Hungarian, Bolivian, Filipino, German and many more backgrounds attending the school. The school’s diversity inspired us to connect the food and culture of the neighborhood with a food trail through the history of the Lower East Side. Each food stall will represent a culture and highlight that culture’s history and role as part of the neighborhood.”

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for kids. The party takes place from 1-4 p.m.
