Week of January 9-13, 2023 - Principal's Message

Dear Families,

The new year is always a hopeful time. Our students, your children, are our hope and future. I am proud of the fact that the strategies, content, and social skills they develop at P.S. 212 will prepare them for their future goals and accomplishments. It fills my heart with pride and joy each day when me and AP Rosenthal and AP Rodriguez welcome your children into school. Each morning they are filled with hope and promise.

Wishing you all a wonderful start to 2023.
