It is with great pleasure that I welcome you, and your child, to P.S./I.S. 284, The Lew Wallace School. I would like to start off by welcoming you to the 2013-2014 school year!  Whether you are new to the school or not, the wonderful thing about this school year is that we all get to start all over again. This year, I am looking forward to many new beginnings and I hope you are, too.

As the principal of this fantastic school, I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our students, working with our professional staff and of course you, our parents and community members.  One of my top priorities is ensuring that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible, in a safe, supportive and productive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best, no excuses.  I truly believe that every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.

I am privileged to be blessed with a friendly, hardworking, and genuine group of teachers and staff that care about the each other and most importantly. the well-being of our students.  I have spent several days at school over the summer planning and organizing many events and new programs that we plan to implement this school year! 

I believe that parental involvement is an important factor in the success of our students. Thus, I encourage you to consider getting involved with our students this year.  We can use volunteers at school all the time! Give the school office a call and we will be happy to help you find an area you can help out in! 

Looking forward to a successful school year! 

Yours for the children,

Keva Pitts-Girard, Principal
