P.S. 207 School Leaders

Tara O'Brien, Principal

On behalf of the staff at P.S. 207, I am happy to welcome you to P.S. 207! We are looking forward to a productive year working with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. As we begin the year together, we are looking forward to partnering with you in working toward our school vision of “Growing Leaders of Today and Tomorrow", supported by our mission to provide a developmentally appropriate, inviting, safe and supportive learning environment which fosters leadership skills in all of our students. Each day, our growing leaders engage in tasks designed to strengthen their academic, physical and environmental wellness and to foster the skills necessary for their success as leaders of today and tomorrow.

Upon entering each morning, after being greeted with a smile by our Morning Greeting Team, students continue into our Seasons Cafe for Morning Greeting Time where we recite the Pledge of Allegiance and our P.S. 207 R.O.C.K.S. Pledge and engage in a breathing exercise to prepare for the day. After being greeted by their teachers in the Cafe, students head to their classrooms where they engage in rich tasks designed to develop advanced literacy skills in all content areas. Throughout each day, we celebrate positive behavior expectations and leadership values for our students as they grow into leaders of today and tomorrow.

To keep you up to date regarding all of the great things happening, our Parent News and Notes Newsletter showcases the month’s celebrations, activities, and academics, as well as provides a look ahead toward the following month.

Once again, our staff and I are excited to partner with you, and we are looking forward to years filled with love, laughter, and moments that we will treasure forever.
