Ms. Florio's Letter to the PS 203 School Community, Sunday, 9/12

Good Afternoon PS 203 School Community,

Last year, we can and we will was the phrase that got us through the year. When the 20-21 school year was over, we were able to add… we did

Tomorrow we start a new school year and we are #PS203STRONG.  We are (among other things) resilient, adaptable, realistic, hopeful, dedicated and kind. 

We remain steadfast in our commitment to learning, health and safety, social emotional wellness, everything that makes PS 203 special and we will continue the school’s growth in energy, equity, expectations, and ensemble.

There are also changes to this school year:

>We welcome back all of our entire staff to being in-person.

>We say hello to our whole student body being in-person.

>We recognize our school community’s concerns about health and

safety and all things Covid.

>We wish happiness to staff members who retired last June.

>We say good bye Ms. Chang-Lau as she moves on in her

 professional journey and I will soon be announcing our new AP to

the school community.

 

I invite everyone to come with me as we start the new school year.

Come with me to bring positive ENERGY to our school home.

Come with me to cultivate more EQUITY.

Come with me to set EXPECTATIONS for all of our students to succeed,

and come with me in the realization that our entire school community is the ENSEMBLE.

                        #PS203STRONG

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Florio

PS 203's Multicultural School Philosophy: Equality, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility

Learning and sharing are at the center of our Multicultural Committee's purpose.  This year's core committee worked to bring us together while apart.

This spring, we had an art & poetry workshop, created walls of student work that answered the question: How do you want to be treated by others and had a school spirit day where students and staff were invited to dress in clothes of their country, culture and heritage Please enjoy this  padlet created from this year's spring activities.     Spring 2021
