Our Principal’s Message
Welcome parents, students, and staff to the school year, 2014-2015. Our focus this school year is on increasing our students’ achievement to meet and exceed Common Core Standards in all academic areas. This will be an exciting and challenging year as we pursue our collective goal of making students “College Prepared and Career Ready”. We are committed to providing a 21st century education relative to the Four C’s of the Common Core Standards: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking. At PS. 209, we all understand our responsibilities in supporting classroom instruction, maintaining an educational focus at home, and utilizing all resources to support student achievement. Each staff member understands and realizes the potential in all students and works together through collaborative efforts with students, parents, and the community to support and maintain an environment that contributes to academic and personal success. We look forward to working with students and parents to develop a strong cohesive relationship, built on trust, with the community that I am proud to serve.
