Don't forget! We're feting the (almost) end of summer next week

When we Tweeted on Monday, “Today marks the one-month countdown to the first day of school, Sept. 6,” our readers were swift to respond.

“Why you gotta be like that with all your talk about school starting!” responded FJM718, a Bronx teacher.

Here’s why: We’re using the start of the year as an excuse to open the roof deck at our office space to readers for the second time. Our first happy hour there in June celebrated the “almost start” of summer, and now we’re toasting the almost-end.

The happy hour is on Aug. 15, which means there will still be three weeks and a day until classes begin at most of the city’s public schools. But it will be the summer’s last chance to hobnob with GothamSchools reporters and readers.

Check out the invitation at right for details and RSVP now to join us next week.
