Welcome to PS/MS 31 2021-2022

Welcome Back PS/MS 31 Family!
 
We are incredibly excited to begin a successful year here at PS/MS 31. This promises to be a year filled with new beginnings and golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to reimagine school and make the educational experience even better than before! We embark on this journey with a pledge to the entire PS/MS 31 Family that this will be a supportive year, full of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms.
 
The year will be combined with special events, innovative instruction and more access to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math as we move Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead! We seek to support each other, our students and our families and encourage our school community to be involved and stay connected.
 
During the 2021-22 school year, we will continue to build upon, as well as introduce highly effective forms of teaching and learning, and continued excellence in education. Our classrooms will reflect Innovation Through Exploration as we know that positive change and growth are the results when students are given opportunities to explore all that’s possible on their journey to become leaders of the 21st century.
 
We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! We extend a special, yearlong invitation to all stakeholders to join us at school activities and events, and school meetings as much as possible. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support! Active participation is key to the success of all students during their elementary and middle school years. Home/school communication is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school is a great place to teach and learn each day!
 
In Unity,

Our Mission
 
Our school community strives to empower every student with the intellectual and social emotional skills needed to reach and exceed their full potential. It is our shared responsibility to support, uplift and encourage our students academically and socially so that they know their lives and their education matter. Our students receive rigorous, relevant, and real-world education that fosters the skills needed to be community leaders. Our mission is achieved by employing our Core values – Critical Thinking, Creativity/Innovation, Cultural Competency, Collaboration and Character.
Our Vision
 
The William Lloyd Garrison School seeks to provide innovative and transformational opportunities for our students by empowering them to explore all that is possible through academics and self-awareness.
Our Motto
 
INNOVATION THROUGH EXPLORATION
MOVING FULL S.T.E.A.M. AHEAD!
Our Credo
 
As we work towards defining our future, We are willing to take the harder way, the more complicated one, the one with more failures at first than successes, the one that’s ultimately proven to have more victory and more glory and we will not regret it!
 
This is our time!
