Dear PS9 Families,
Thank you so much for your thoughtful questions from last night’s Community Forum (Please use this link to view a recording of the meeting). I am excited to continue to host our bi-weekly community forum in order to best support the families of PS9 with remote learning.

Also, thank you again for your patience as the staff transition to using new communication platforms. We are committed to ongoing school improvement efforts and will address all concerns as they come up.

As we strive to support the “whole” child, we cannot forget what it means to be human and face our fears and the changes happening around us. To that end, I am hosting Mindful Practice classroom sessions with classes daily to promote student self-awareness and self-regulation through tools such as mindful breathing, journaling, creating art, and more.

I am very happy to offer a Mindful Practice session next week for parents and hope to see you on Tuesday, April 21st at 5 p.m.

Please join using your child’s Google classroom account email.
