Why Count Me In

What does Count Me In support?

  • Assistant teachers in every classroom, in every grade. The assistant teachers help reduce our adult/student ratio. Assistant teachers help our kids get settled into the classroom each day, support them in their school work, and provide continuity and familiarity in the event of a teacher absence. PS 9 provides assistant teachers in all classrooms, for the full school day.
  • Enrichment classes as part of the school day curriculum. Subjects including Spanish, Chess, and Music are part of the core curriculum at PS 9. CMI supports instructors for these subjects.


Our kids need our support

PS 9 is able to offer all of these excellent programs because of the generous support of PS 9 families. Without our support, our kids would lack exposure to the excellent classes and resources that enrich their education and make our school so unique.


Please support Count Me In and make an investment in your child’s education. Our kids are counting on you!
