Message From Principal

 "This is one of the glories of man, the inventiveness of the human mind and the human spirit: whenever life doesn't seem to give an answer, we create one."
                                                                - Lorraine Hansberry     
​As the Principal of PS 118-The Lorraine Hansberry Elementary School, it is an honor to serve this school Community.  This year is like none other but we are committed to continuing the beliefs of high expectations and perseverance.  We will make strides in whatever learning formats that are presented to us.  Collective collaboration, planning and communication will guide this work.  It is imperative that we build and maintain strong school- family relationships.   I look forward to continuing these relationships and working with everyone to provide a private school educational experience in a public school setting. 

Our greatest initiative will be to continue to work together to do what is best for OUR children and inspire and challenge them with engaging experiences. Although we have entered a new phase of teaching and learning, I am confident, that together, we can make PS 118Q an even better place for our students to learn and grow.

-Ms. S.
