Principal's Statement

Marlene Zucker, Principal


Sheelia Twomey,
Assistant Principal

P.S. 159 is a school community whose mission is to provide a safe, educational environment.  We are a true partnership of students, parents and staff, all working together toward the same goal:  that each of our students becomes actively responsible for becoming an independent learner who is able to succeed in today's society and act as a responsible member of that society.

Dear Parents:

Welcome back to the 2002-2003 school year. I hope that everyone had a restful and productive summer. We look forward to welcoming the newest members of the 159 Community.

Thanks to the efforts of our entire staff the classrooms already reflect a nurturing and an academically inviting environment. We will continue our focus on developing and strengthening Literacy and Mathematical skills in all curricula areas. Our goal is to have all of our students become life-long learners.

I look forward to working with all of you as we continue to attain academic excellence.
