P.S. 91X welcomes the 2017-2018 School Year!
By Mr. Pagan, P.S. 91x
P.S. 91X opened its doors for the first day of the 2017-2018 school year on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017. Students, filled with nervous excitement in their faces, lined up in the school yard to meet their new classroom teachers. Out of classroom staff and enrichment teachers helped parents and students work their way around the sea of smiling faces to find their new homeroom teacher and classmates.
After a triumphant 2016-2017 that saw impressive increases in Math and ELA (English Language Arts) scores from our Kindergarten to Fifth grade students, P.S. 91x teachers and support staff are enlivened to continue the school's mission in this new school year.
To further our work towards achieving and maintaining academic excellence we will continue to use the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching, which emphasizes the social, emotional, and academic growth of elementary school students in a strong and safe learning environment.
We will also offer life enrichment opportunities for our students to experience such as our beloved P.S. 91x Orchestra, the P.S. 91x Student Choir, P.S. 91x Book Clubs, and the P.S. 91x Tigers Basketball Club to name a few. Additionally, all students at P.S. 91x will receive Physical Education at our renovated gymnasium. Art and Dance classes round out our enrichment offerings.
We wish all our students, teachers, and parents all the best in this new school year!
