Let me take this opportunity
to welcome all parents and children to the P. S. 3 Family. I do hope that
everyone enjoyed a restful summer. In the upcoming school year, we will be
faced with many changes and new challenges, but the staff and I will remain
committed to our focus on student learning.
In order to ensure that "all students succeed",
academically and socially, and learn to make sound decisions, we are committed
to providing an educational foundation that will equip and prepare our students
to become lifelong learners. The continued implementation of performance
standards has our staff engaged in collaborative planning and maximizing
strategies to ensure student learning.The staff and I welcome parents as our
partners in supporting the academic and social programs in our school. I look
forward to a year in which each student records academic gains and finds a
welcome niche within the P. S. 3 family.
