“The beauty you see in me is a reflection of you.” -Rumi✨

Dear PS9 Families,

I hope that you are safe, healthy and peaceful with your loved ones during this unprecedented time. Sending you all well wishes as I understand how unsettling this transition may feel. I want to thank you on behalf of the PS9 staff for your support and commitment to meet our school’s remote learning benchmarks for week 1.

Our priority is to ensure students feel a connection to their school community and a sense of stability. Thanks to our collective efforts and support structures, we reached 97% student attendance & engagement this week as teachers provided instructional experiences across all grades and classrooms on an entirely new platform. I am proud to be charged with leading an engaged and committed community of people that serve with love. I am sharing released official communication from the DOE for your reference.
