Chancellor Dennis Walcott, who visits schools more frequently than his predecessors did, is not staying away from schools even during the Thanksgiving vacation.
On Wednesday, Walcott — a self-proclaimed fitness freak — participated in a “turkey trot” at P.S. 36 in the Bronx, then joined students at Baychester Middle School for their annual pre-Thanksgiving flag football game.
Today, before heading home for a meal of his own, he’s going to M.S. 53 in Queens for that school’s holiday feast. The Far Rockaway middle school had many families affected by last year’s Superstorm Sandy.
