Dear Families,

Welcome to PS 191. We at PS 191 understand the vital role that parents play in the education of their children.  Please visit your child’s Teacher’s Page which will provide you with information about what your child is learning, school events, and any other announcements that may impact you and your child. Teacher Pages will be updated regularly and will prove to be a very useful tool to you and your family.

Upcoming school wide information may be found on all bulletin boards on the ground floor. A weekly news blast is emailed to parents every Friday with the upcoming week’s information. Please make sure that I have your email address to ensure that you receive the most up to date information. You may also contact me through email at dcarrion@schools.nyc.gov. Information may also be sent to you through our School Messenger System. This system will call homes with a pre-recorded message or reminder.  As we all know, successful communication between the home and school is a vital part of your child’s school experience.

I also invite you to become part of our Parent Association and /or School Leadership Team.

There will be many parent activities throughout the year which I encourage all parents to participate in.  Magnet Café is a wonderful experience for all parents to get information on upcoming school events. Please join us.
As we all know, successful communication between the home and school is a vital part of your child’s school experience.

I look forward to working with you and your family this year.

Sincerely,
Damaris Carrion

Parent Coordinator
