Principal’s Message

Hello PS/IS 121 Community!
Summer is here!  That means one thing... We made it through the 2020-21 school year!
I want to thank parents, teachers, and students for working hard, staying determined, and being flexible through what was a difficult and unpredictable year.  Seriously. 
I hope that whatever you are doing this summer you are finding ways to relax and recharge for September of 2021!  We will post updates on mask mandates, social distancing, and other COVID-related modifications, but generally, you can expect all students and staff to be back in person and ready to go in September.
We have a few exciting surprises waiting for you when you get here.  I won't give them all away, but here are a few to get you looking forward to the year:
*We hired an Art Teacher!
*The Middle School Science classroom has been completely re-done
*Scaffolding is down and the front outdoor areas of the school are in the middle of a big make-over
*We have a ping-pong table!
We will continue to work to add content to the website over the summer and throughout the year.  In the mean time, please email the school with any questions you have about September!
Thank you, 
Mr. Haviland
