Principal Colby Muscarelle's March Letter

                                                                                                       April, 2024

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


Spring is finally here, and warmer weather is hopefully on the way. We had a very productive March. Parent-teacher conferences took place on Thursday, March 7th, with more than 420 parents in attendance. If you didn't have an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher, please make every effort to meet with him/her ASAP.  You and the teacher may coordinate a mutually convenient date/time.  Teachers have flexible parent engagement time each week after school hours.


We organized  the Women's History Month Celebration, highlighting women who bring inspiration, strength, and dedication to make this world a better place.


We hosted a month-long JDRF fundraising event to bring awareness to Type I diabetes led by Ms. Draghi.  Additionally, we thank the PTA board and all the volunteers who helped coordinate a beautiful Ramadan celebration.  We were so impressed by all our students showcasing their talents during their Soapbox speech assemblies, the ballroom dancing performance, the Studio in A School exhibit, and the Pi Day assembly.


We would like to thank all of the families and staff members that organized these events and all of those who participated.  We thank you for your continued support of the P.S./I.S. 192 school community.


As a reminder, it’s crucial for students to get a good night’s rest, to eat a healthy, well-balanced breakfast, and to be on time for school. Also, for those students who wear glasses, please make sure they bring them to school each day.


This is a reminder to all families of students who have applied for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Middle School, or High School - this is the season for seats being offered.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Marina Daniello for HS questions (x5022), Donna Alagna for MS questions (x3181), or Solange Cisneros-Steinert for elementary school questions (x2056).
