“If our American way of life fails the child, it fails us all.” – Pearl S. Buck
Dear PS9 Families,
Never have Pearl S. Buck’s words rung more true than in this school year “like no other.” Our school community needs our support more than ever, which is why I ask you to join me in donating, if you have not already, to the 2020-2021 PTO Direct Appeal.
Each year, parents, families, and businesses come together to financially contribute to PS9’s initiatives and programming, like arts enrichment and literacy support.
This year, your Direct Appeal donations support a variety of digital and on-site programs designed to lift all our 900+ students to academic and personal success.
I am delighted to report that you have already contributed more than $45,000 toward our yearlong $125,000 goal. To help Principal Ali best manage her resources, we are hoping to raise $75,000 by December 31st. Your donation in any amount helps PS9 serve our 900+ scholars and has already helped provide:
- Digital learning platforms: MyOn, Freckle, and Exact Path
- Teacher supplies
- Outdoor learning opportunities
- Additional building needs
For more than 150 years, PS9 has been a stabilizing force for the Crown Heights / Prospect Heights neighborhoods. We are already together in spirit and community. With your generosity, we can look forward to a brighter day when all of PS9’s community can truly gather again.
Jessica Flores, PTO President
