Dear Wagner Families,

Congratulations to all on another successful year at Wagner! There are many exciting events and culminating celebrations in the weeks ahead and we would like to invite you to honor your child in a permanent way by sponsoring a Legacy Plaque with your child’s name and their grade engraved on a seat in our auditorium.

These are a great remembrance for graduating 8th graders or current 6th and 7th graders! The plaques will be mounted permanently on the back of an auditorium seat for $100 each. The first line will feature your child’s name and the second line is for their graduating year “Class of 20__”.

Please return this form (below) with cash or money order for $100 made payable to Wagner MS 167 PA in an envelope marked Wagner Legacy Plaque and drop it in the white PA mailbox next to Sheila Gonzalez’s office (foyer to the nurse) no later than May 24, 2019. Or complete the form online and pay by credit card at If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Gottschalk at

Thank you in advance for all your support!

NYICFF Field Trips and Film Camps

Hello school partners! 


I wanted to take a moment to remind you all of NYICFF's education initiatives; our Film Ed Field trips and filmmaking camps. 


Film Ed Field Trips 

I'm attaching a PDF with more info about our educational field trip screenings, or you can learn more on  our website.  These specially curated programs are a fun, dynamic way for students to learn about cultural perspectives and the art of film and animation while exercising their media literacy skills.

We are continuing to book screenings through the end of the year! Share the PDF with your school teachers! 


Automatic Studios Film Camps 

This year we are partnering with our friends at  Automatic Studios to offer our school partners a significant discount on their filmmaking camps! 

At Automatic Studios kids learn the art and technical skills of live action filmmaking. Learn more on  their website and use the code NYICFFDISCOUNT to save $100 on April break or Summer camps! I'm attaching a PDF for this as well. 


Feel free to reach out with any questions!
