Walking into school today, all around me were smiles, high-fives of celebration, and talk of how wonderful PS 84's Spring Fair was this past Saturday. In my mind, I keep hearing students singing "Make me a Believer," and I can't help but smile and feel full of happiness. I am living my dream come true. I am here, working side by side with the most incredible people I have ever met in my life --parents, teachers, an admin team, and truly amazing students. I am part of a place where people live up to our shared code ROAR --Respecting one another,
thinking with Open-mindedness, Achieving, and taking Responsibility for their community).
Together from proceeds of our International Night gala last month and the Spring Fair, PS 84's PTA raised money to make sure all we do that makes our school special continues. Programs like Urban Roots, Assemblage in the classroom, From Tadpoles to Toads, Metamorphosis Mathematics, and the purchase of new musical instruments for future concerts and performances will now be possible. It will all be possible because we have a joint vision and passion. We understand that tomorrow's world depends upon how we raise our children today.
Thank you again for making me the proudest and happiest principal in all of New York City, I'm betting in all of this world too. I am so honored to be part of this team of lions!
