Message from the Principal

September 8, 2014
 
Dear Families of Peninsula Prep Academy,
 
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Staff, we welcome you to the new school year of 2014-2015.  To our returning families, we welcome you back.  To our new families, we are looking forward to working with you and your child this year.  We are very excited about the upcoming school year and have been very busy working throughout the summer to enhance your child’s education.
 
I am your new Principal and look forward to meeting each of you as I get to know your children.  In our effort to improve and grow, we welcome new staff members, joining those dedicated teachers  and staff you have known and respect. We welcome a new Director of Student and School Culture and the Director of Guidance and Special Education.   These additions are to insure a coordinated effort and specialized support for our children.
 
As we work toward the development of quality Specialty classes, we will have 5 additional areas to boost our students’ school experiences, including Music, Art, Physical Education, Technology instruction, and an enhanced experience in Library and Media.  These exciting additions to our program will promise stimulating opportunities for our students.  Technology will take “center stage” as our children experience on-line learning, the regular use of computers for research and study, eReaders to download assigned and choice books, and project-based-learning to demonstrate understanding of topics and concepts.  What a year ahead of us! 
 
We haven’t forgotten our parents!  We have a year of motivating programs and learning opportunities scheduled for each month of the year!  You will receive the detailed schedule and we hope to see you there each month.
 
We will not settle for mediocre learning or even “good” learning.  We are determined to engage our children in exciting and engaging opportunities toward excellence!  If we aim for the stars, to be the best school in Far Rockaway, and if we pursue that goal with vision and perseverance, then I know we will achieve our goal.  Let’s do what hasn’t been done; we are here to revolutionize learning!
 
In Service to the Community,

Mrs. Karen W Jones
Principal
