November 12, 2019

Last night, we had a Meet and Greet at Ulysses in Lower Manhattan.

The event took place in an Irish meets Greek restaurant! It was a cold, blustery evening, but that did not stop us from getting together at the historic roadhouse, on an historic cobblestone street. Everyone that came out was glad that they did! If you joined us, thank you!  If you did not, next time! We will be meeting again in January, in a Queens location. Details to follow in a few weeks. 

We celebrate Irish culture, promote collegiality, community and unity among all of our colleagues in the New York City Department of Education. To this end, we are inclusive of our Irish and honorary Irish brothers and sisters of the UFT, CSA, Local 94 and Local 891! In fact, our organization has been in existence for over fifty years, because we celebrate our culture, recognize and honor the contributions of all its members of the educational community within the NYC public schools.

At each event, we want to extend one hundred thousand welcomes to you, or Céad mile fáilte! We have many new initiatives and activities planned and hope that you will consider joining us to celebrate and preserve the Irish culture, develop a sense of fellowship, benevolence and to honor our accomplishments.

Save the date - March 13 – Annual Scholarship Gala. The traditional NYCDOE Emerald Society gala will continue at Terrace on the Park. First, we will recognize the efforts of our scholarship winners! In addition, we will honor the efforts of those going beyond on a daily basis in our city schools, and of course, enjoy the sights and sounds of Irish tradition.

Attached you will find the dinner dance announcement, a membership application, and  the Scholarship Awards notice. Please share this information with your colleagues, encourage them to join and support the Emerald Society, and meet our Irish brothers and sisters who work to educate our city’s future! Consider becoming a member of an association that supports your profession, culture and education.

Hope you will join us in January!
