Dear PS 101 Families:
Welcome Back to School!
I hope you had a wonderful summer and enjoyed time with loved ones. I am very excited for the new school year to begin. I am proud and privileged as your child’s principal to share the following new instructional advancements:
*New touch screen student laptops for our early childhood classes and expansion of our upper grade iPad classrooms.
*The launch of our new STEM lab with exploration and a new understanding.
*Students will be engaged in new Social Studies, Science and STEM curriculums to better prepare our youngsters with college and career readiness.
*Air conditioning unit upgrades in our gymnasium.
*Hiring of additional Physical Education teacher to ensure state requirements with physical activity and health/hygiene.
*Final phases of our building extension and renovations for our current building with classroom and restroom upgrades.
It is my mission to continue this work with my administrative team and teaching/support staff, paraprofessionals, our School Leadership Team and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to guarantee that all of our students are receiving rigorous instruction in a caring and supportive environment. I encourage you to please get involved with the PTA and attend the many parent engagement opportunities at our school. We welcome ideas and volunteers both for the upcoming school year and beyond. Your voice, involvement and support are crucial for overall success.
In closing, I would like to invite you to follow the school on ps101k.com and twitter @ps101verrazano. We will be posting current events, news, pictures and videos throughout the year, as well as updates to our school calendar, policies, handbooks, other resources and links to our social media accounts. I look forward to an exciting school year at PS 101.
