A message from the principal

P.S. 195 continues to reach excellence! Every year our State Exam proficiency is rising as our students are internalizing their learning and critically thinking in all subject areas. Our students have also begun STEAM work where they are engaged in project based learning, preparing them for colleges and careers.

We are a Teacher's College Reading and Writing school, so our students are engaged in daily and authentic reading and writing. We are so proud of our students for now knowing and internalizing their personal goals, and not only knowing those goals, but also knowing how they are working to achieve them!! We have a lot to be proud of as a community.

Additionally, we value the arts. We are proud to say that now all of our students receive enrichment classes in art, drama, music, technology and physical education! Please purchase free tickets for the upcoming student theater production, Little Mermaid Jr., taking place May 31st and June 1st!

We also have two full time guidance counselors and a social worker to support student social and emotional learning, as we work to develop the whole child. You can always reach out to one of them with any questions you might have relating to your child's emotional well being.

As a PBIS school, we are implementing commendation cards to reward positive behavior, and we welcome you to our monthly PBIS SOAR assemblies where we honor our students!

Our school has grown immensely in a short period of time, and we are proud for all that our students are accomplishing day in and day out. We also value our families for always partnering with us to ensure that our students receive the most well rounded education that they deserve. We look forward to all the great events still to come and we can't wait to see you join us for these events!
