Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We, at PS 109, believe that our school is a place where students and faculty are free to take risks, work together, and nurture each other.

We believe that academics and social skills go hand in hand in becoming a lifelong learner. For that reason, we teach students how to be responsible, respectful, and safe members of our community. Because our learners are different, we strive to meet their needs through many activities. Our instruction meets the needs of each student and is engaging. Our staff works together to create a variety of learning experiences. We are a community that encourages high expectations, academic rigor, values and critical thinking. Teachers, parents and staff work together to build relationships and foster learning.

We live by our motto, "The Children, Parents and Staff Shine at 109!"
