Did you know?

The PS 9 PTO has formed a Transportation Team! 

Do you want safer streets for PS 9 students? Tired of dodging forklifts on the sidewalks of St. Marks?  Our first ever Transportation Team is addressing parent concerns about traffic and child safety issues around the school.  Tired of all the amber gamblers and speeding drivers? The PS 9 PTO has signed on to the Transportation Alternatives’ “Families for Safe Streets” campaign which is asking Albany for speed cameras for every NYC public school.

We're also advocating for more crossing guards on Vanderbilt and bike racks for children's bikes. We'll generally raise awareness of safety and alternate transportation options (think bicycles). Please join us! If you would like to get involved, contact Nick Peterson at
