Welcome to the PS 9 PTO Newsletter!
Welcome to your new PTO newsletter - a place to share news and events at PS9, and to get your feedback as well. As PS 9 continues to grow, we want to be sure we stay connected in our efforts as parents, guardians, teachers, students, and staff.  We have a motivated PS 9 family dedicated to educating our little ones, and I am excited to be a part of continuing to build our crew.
Your Community-Building Co-President,
Monica Ortiz Rossi
Thank You for your Dedication to Imagination!
In October and November, our community banded together for an online voting challenge. And we responded so strongly, we won a valuable “Imagination Playground” for PS 9. These colorful, bendy tubes and on-site instruction are worth over $7,500 and can be used year-round. Our new imagination playground will be especially useful during snowy and rainy days for indoor recess.

We cast 2,142 votes for PS 9, beating out more than 1,860 participating organizations. It wasn’t even close: we got 30% more than the organization in second place.  This win, along with many other ones, show we have a devoted school community at PS 9, and we are working together to achieve remarkable things.  GREAT WORK, PS 9!
If you or someone you know shops at Fairway, you can now also support PS 9 while you shop!  As new members in Fairway’s Community Partners program, the PS 9 PTO will receive 3% of all proceeds spent by the school community in all Fairways across New York City and beyond!

Please be sure to continue to read the "News at 9" update sent on Wednesdays by our parent coordinator, Ms. Charmaine Jacobs.

News at 9 and the ps9family yahoo group remain the best ways for us PS 9 families to stay informed, ask questions, and start discussions about what concerns or interests you.
