Important Parent Survey - We Need Your Input

Parents of Students at P.S. 91Q:
You are being asked to complete this survey as part of an annual assessment to help all members of the school community (students, parents, and the adults who work at the school) understand how everyone feels about your child’s school. As you respond to each item, focus on your thoughts and feelings based on your own personal experience with the school, as well as your perceptions of your child's experience as a student.There are no right or wrong answers— this is not a test! We just want to know how you feel. Your responses will provide us with important information to help your child’s school become even better. All of your responses are completely anonymous. No one from the school will ever see your answers, and no identifying information (such as name, child’s name or survey ID) will be recorded with your answers. All results will be reported to your school only in terms of how each population responded. Individual responses are never seen by your school. The survey should take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Please try to respond to all items.

Breakfast In the Classroom - Begins Tuesday February 9th

Starting Tuesday, February 9th, 2016, students will take part in an innovative program called “Breakfast in the Classroom.”  Just as the name implies, a nutritious breakfast will be served to each student, right in the classroom, every school day.  Students will have an opportunity only during the first 15 minutes of class to eat breakfast with their classmates and get the fuel they need to be ready to learn.  Breakfast is still free.  
As a result, there will be a few slight changes in our morning operations.  Please note:

  • Breakfast is no longer available in the cafeteria.
  • Early morning drop-off time at 7:20 a.m. through 7:50 a.m. will continue
  • Students for early morning drop off will now enter through the main doors and up to the auditorium instead of entering through the cafeteria  
  • There will be no food permitted in the auditorium 
  • All students dropped off before school will be expected to bring a book to read during the time they will be in the auditorium
  • Arrival doors will still open at 7:50 but will close promptly at 8 a m so that students can get to their classrooms on time

Thank you for your cooperation in making this program a success.

Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year

I am excited about beginning a new school year with the P.S. 91 community.
I truly believe that parents, staff and students working together can make our school a great place to be.

P.S. 91 is dedicated to improving the achievement of all of our students. In 2015-2016 we will use the Framework for Great Schools to strengthen our approach to priority areas of work and to meet our goals as a school.

The School Leadership Team (SLT) diligently worked on our Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP), developing our goals and vision for this academic year.

Higher student achievement is one of our primary goals. We are working to have all of all students meeting standards for their grade during the 2015-2016 school year. The strategies we will use to achieve this goal will need students, parents and staff working as a team. I am confident that working together, we can not only achieve, but surpass the goal this year.

Another goal for this year, is to provide additional professional development for our teachers. By developing and adding to the skills of our already highly qualified teaching staff, we will have a positive impact on our students. The result will be higher student achievement.

We will also implement a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) during the 2015-2016 school year. The purpose of this PBIS is to support our goal of improving student behavior both in the classroom and the cafeteria. Information about the PBIS system will be distributed to families and posted on our website once the implementation of the system begins.

Parent support is crucial to assist us in achieving our goals. As part of our Comprehensive Education Plan, the SLT reviewed our Parent Involvement Policy and the School-Parent Compact. As a result, we will work to improve parent communication. School Messenger, E-Mail Distribution lists, monthly calendars/newsletters and our school website are all essential tools to keep aware of what is happening at P.S. 91. Please take advantage of these tools and check them often.

Additionally, we will provide Parent Workshops to help parents in supporting their children. Try to attend these workshops as often as possible, as they will provide valuable information to assist you.

Our hope is that we can continue to nurture our strong ties with our P.S. 91 families and the Glendale Community, resulting in successful students.

I look forward to a productive school year.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

                                                           Sincerely,
                                                           Victoria Catalano
                                                            Principal
