  • Welcome to our new website!

    We're thrilled to present the launch of the all-new PS9 website! Tremendous thanks goes out to Julia Daunis, who worked throughout the summer to ensure this brand new web experience for our families. Thanks also to Charmaine Derrell-Jacob for her support and dedication, and the past & present members of the PTO Web Team who contributed greatly throughout the years.

    And thanks to all of you! Without you, the members of the PS9 PTO (who voted for this expenditure in June), this project would not have been funded. This is truly your donation dollars at work. This new site is more flexible than the old version, allowing changes to be made more regularly and more easily, while also remaining compliant with web accessibility standards.

    There will be additional content added soon, so please check back for updates.
