A Message from Ms. Panag:
One of the joys of elementary school is that I get to see families in many spaces such as arrival, school trips, Family Fridays, and other celebratory school events. You often hear me say that I have a learning stance. Where I listen to the community - parents, students, staff, and then thoughtfully respond to the needs of the school. I have met many parents, and heard and responded to questions, concerns and comments.
I am delighted to share the launch of "Coffee with the Principal" starting this month. This is the first of monthly meetings where I have an informal space to engage with families. I"ll hope you'll come enjoy a morning of conversation and coffee with me on Thursday, November 21 at 8:30 am in the cafeteria.
We will host a special event for our extended family members on Friday, December 6 to help our students explore and celebrate the important role extended families have in their lives.

Please have guests RSVP online by Tuesday, December 3.

Welcome in the school year with a fantastically fun potluck celebration of the diversity and individuality of the P.S. 39 community! Bring a delicious dish (either from your family's heritage or a favorite) to share for the potluck! This is a wonderful opportunity to make a family recipe with your children and share the story of why this dish is special to your family.
