PS- 317 Waterside Children's Studio School

“At the Waterside Children's Studio School, our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where creativity and artistic expression are integral to the academic and emotional success of every child. Through music, drama, visual arts, film, technology, writing, and dance, our rigorous and progressive curriculum will empower ALL of our children to grow academically, creatively and socially. They will acquire the critical thinking, personal integrity and self esteem that go beyond the classroom walls.” ~www.watersidecss.org~

We are a new school that is growing and developing a place for students to learn and grow to be future leaders and independent members of their communities. As a teacher, I am ALWAYS going above and beyond for my students. I am always researching current trends in education and purchasing books, supplies, crafts and cleaning supplies to make sure the students have anything and everything they need to be successful. My love for teaching and my students is genuine. Through the generous donations and support you can help make our school and my classroom an even greater success!!!!!!!!!!”
