It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join our new school community! As an experienced educator as well as the mom of three little boys, I am committed to creating the kind of place where children will grow and thrive. My vision for PS 9 begins with three goals for every child who enters our doors. I want them to be:
- Safe—physically as well as emotionally. In our environment, they will have the confidence to take risks, try new things and discover a new world of ideas and opportunities.
- Smart—with a true love of learning. We will help them learn to read with real understanding, write intelligently, solve problems, think critically, ask the right questions—and find their own answers.
- Social—as valued members of our community. Children at PS 9 will make real friends, understand respect, show kindness, embrace diversity and build strong relationships with those around them.
I hope you will make PS 9 a part of your family’s life, as your child becomes part of our lives.

PS 9—Naples Street Elementary School
HOW TO BECOME PART OF THE PS 9 COMMUNITY
PS 9, Naples Street Elementary School, a new choice school, is opening this September. PS 48 will be moving across the street and we, PS 9, will move into the current PS 48 building on Targee Street.
We will open with two full day Pre-Kindergarten class and two Kindergarten classes in September 2013. Each year, thereafter, we will grow one grade at a time until we reach grade 5.
The Kindergarten application process ended on March 1st, however, families may submit late applications to Deanna Marco directly. These applications will be considered after “on time” applications are processed and will be added to the waitlist. Email Deanna Marco at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to submit a late application. Pre-Kindergarten registration ended on April 5th.
