Dearest P.S. 56 School Family,
Welcome 2023! Our new year has begun and our awesome school year continues! Isn’t it wonderful that we have two “new year” days every school year (the first day of school and the first day of January). We have two precious opportunities to set new goals for ourselves, while always striving to be better than our last best! Sharing these new year days with all of you is truly a cherished blessing.
We are so excited to welcome our children back on January 3, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. to continue their academic journeys for the 2022-2023 school year. They are all super star students, who sparkle and shine in every moment of every day. We are so immeasurably proud of them and honored to be part of their journey as learners. We continue our commitment to ensuring our students feel safe, feel loved, and know the joy of being lifelong learners, as they become responsible and compassionate citizens of our community, our country and our world. Our K - 5 curriculum and units of study support the critical thinking skills, the communication skills and the core values that strengthen and ensure good citizenship.
Working together, our children are without limits. With our continued strong and positive home-school connection, we are confident that all our students will achieve their learning goals. We remain dedicated to ensuring that all our children reach their full potential in a loving and nurturing learning environment. Together we are going far!
This is such an important month as we prepare to remember & celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There are so many opportunities for all of us to recommit ourselves to Dr. King’s call to service to others, with a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love. I experience and witness this every day because of all of you!
May 2023 be the healthiest and happiest new year for us all, and overflowing with an abundance of cherished moments with family and friends. My love and appreciation for my P.S. 56 Family are immeasurable. Always!
