Dearest Friends and Families of P.S. 130M:
Our sincerest gratitude to all of you for your continued support of P.S. 130 Manhattan! Our success wouldn't be possible without each and every one of you. There's always a deep sense of joy and pride when our children take center stage. When the spotlight is on our children each and every day and we focus on doing the best that we can to empower our students so that they can succeed, then the magic is able to continue to happen at P.S. 130.
With each and every challenge that we face, our students step up, our parents step up, our teachers step up, our staff members step up, our school leaders step up, and the entire P.S. 130 community steps up. Thanks to everyone for your commitment to the education of our children; you all deserve a big hand and a standing ovation. Bravo!
I am truly thankful and grateful to be a part of this amazing community. I continue to learn each and every day because of the children at P.S. 130, and because of our teachers, our staff members, and our community. Thank you all so much!
Cheers to everyone for another wonderful school year at Public School 130 Manhattan!
