Weekly Update

P.S. 212Q

Week of September 18-22, 2023 - Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Thank you for attending our virtual Meet the Teacher Night, I hope that you had a positive interaction with your child's teacher(s) and see how well we prepare your children for their future. We are a collective, we need your support as well to ensure that your child/children meet their social and academic benchmarks. We look forward to working with you for your child's continued growth and success. We had some technology wrinkles. Please note that it was unintentional, we are people and people make mistakes. Our motto and vision at P.S. 212Q is, "Everyone Grows!" We learn from our mistakes daily and will do better the next time. Thank you for providing us with patience and grace as we navigate this new school year.

We will be hosting events for families to come in to see your child's class (more information to follow shortly).

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

If you celebrate Rosh Hashanah, we wish you “L’Shana Tovah”!
