Thanks and Giving

The first annual PS 9 Giving Week was a tremendous success!


The PS 9 community came together as one strong family to give thanks and give back to our school with 140 donations! We are extremely grateful to all the families who participated and supported the amazing enrichments our children receive at PS9. We are now at an overall participation rate of 41%!


We are thankful to be part of the PS9 community and to have your support. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Request from Art Teachers


  • Fourth Grade Mask Making is coming soon, and our art teachers need newspaper! If you have newspaper to donate, please drop them off in the PA room or in the main office.

  • Also, packages of wipes would be greatly appreciated. Ms. Deb and Ms. Melissa prefer to use wipes in the art classroom as an alternative to hand washing at the sink. Using wipes is a big time saver, and helps keep clean-up calm.

  • You may leave these donated items in the PA room under the table by the wall that is shared by the nurse’s office. You may also leave them in the main office under the table with the picture books. Thank you!
