Principal Colby Muscarelle's June Letter


June, 2024

Dear P.S./I.S. 192 Families,

It’s hard to believe that the school year is almost over. I would like to take a moment to thank you for entrusting us at P.S./I.S. 192 with your child(ren) each and every day!
I want to extend my most profound appreciation to the parents who actively participated in our school events, PTA meetings and celebrations. Thank you for partnering with us and embracing the belief that education is collaborative. Your involvement has fostered a sense of togetherness and unity within our school community. For that, we are sincerely grateful.
Special thanks to the following families who supported our school carnival: Mia Pena, Carly & Sophia Caballa, Nathan Alvarado Baez, Alejandro Anthony, Alejandro Torres, Luis Hernandez and Mr. Torres and Mrs. Caballa for being part of the PTA Nomination Committee.

We would also like to thank our PTA Board 2023 - 2024: Ms. Nashwa Elsayed, Marcella Itchel and Dalia Salem for their dedication to our school community. A warm welcome and wish of good luck to our incoming 2024-2025 PTA Board: Nashwa Elsayed - President & Peter Campanella - Secretary. As a reminder, the PTA treasurer position is still open, if you would like to nominate yourself please attend the upcoming meeting on Wednesday, June 5th at 9:00 am.
Please let us know if you would like to volunteer at school. If volunteering is of interest to you, please reach out to our school Parent Coordinator, Ms. Solange Cisneros-Steinert at for more information.
With the last day of school quickly approaching, we hope that this does not signal the end of learning. Rather, we challenge each of you to make a commitment to exercise your child’s brain as well as their bodies during their time away from school. We will be sending you resources that you may find helpful to meet this challenge. Please note that Wednesday, June 26 will be a full day of instruction and students will be dismissed as usual at 2:20pm.

Lastly, I would like to congratulate our remarkable fifth graders transitioning to middle school and eighth graders moving up to high school. You have shown tremendous growth, resilience, and a thirst for knowledge throughout your time at P.S./I.S. 192. Those of you leaving us will be missed! We are immensely proud of your accomplishments and wish you the best of success as you embark on this exciting new chapter of your education and development. Remember to carry with you the memories, friendships, and lessons learned here at P.S./I.S. 192. We will always be here to support you as you continue to flourish and achieve greatness!

Please find below some important informational reminders:

Doors open at 7:40 AM for all students that wish to eat breakfast
School begins at 8:00 AM. Students that arrive after 8:00 AM are marked late and this will be reflected on their attendance report.
If you are leaving P.S./I.S. 192 and moving to another school, or, you are moving out of the state please, make sure to return electronic devices to the main office before the end of the school year.
