A&E Real Estate And Citizens Committee Help Renovate School In Washington Heights

July 23, 2018

On Friday, July 13, 2018, employees from A&E Real Estate, a citywide real estate management and development company, joined Citizens Committee for New York City to work on much-needed renovation and beautification tasks throughout Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS NYC).

The team of 70 painted four classrooms, alphabetized the school’s book room, cleaned hallways, assembled much-needed laptop carts and hung a colorful mosaic for the enjoyment of students. Teachers, staff and the WHEELS School community.

“We were thrilled to partner with Citizens Committee and to help make sure the WHEELS School students are welcomed back to great learning spaces in the fall,” said Wendy Eisenberg, founding partner, A&E Real Estate. “Our A&E family appreciated the opportunity to give back to the community at our first of many team volunteer projects to come.”

A Cornell University study of 236 New York City middle schools found that building conditions strongly influence a school’s social climate. Adverse building conditions have correlated with students’ negative perception of their school’s social climate and even with decreased attendance and resulting lower academic performance. The team helped WHEELS NYC send a message to its students that learning is important and that the experience of every student counts!
