The Park Slope Stoop blog reports that tomorrow will be an open house and info session concerning P.S. 133, the under-construction school on 4th Avenue between Baltic and Butler streets. The school will open this September and be the first in Brooklyn to have dual-language immersion programs in Spanish and French. The Department of Education agreed to reserve 30 percent of P.S. 133’s seats for English language learners and students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunches in a controversial affirmative action policy reported earlier this month. The meeting will be held tomorrow, Dec. 18, at 9 am, at the current P.S. 133 location at 211 8th Street at 4th Avenue. For more information, call (718) 857-4810.
