To Our Wonderful
P.S. 233 Families
Welcome to the start of the 2023-2024 school year! The Langston Hughes School has served this community for over 80 years, and the day before the first day of school still fills us with anticipation and excitement. We are putting the finishing touches on the classrooms and making sure everything is just right for the arrival of our students. This will be a year of growth and achievement for all of our students, and we can't accomplish this without your support. I look forward to seeing you and welcoming our children back on Thursday, September 7.
Please explore this week's newsletter for details about last week's HBCU College Fair. Also, learn how to enroll your child in kindergarten and the Summer Rising program, important dates, and more!
ABOUT P.S. 233
A Community of Learners
P.S. 233, The Langston Hughes School, is a public 3-K through Grade 5 elementary school. We have faithfully served our East Flatbush community for over 90 years, and focus on educating the whole child - socially, emotionally, and academically.
Our talented and dedicated teachers provide students a strong foundation in all subject areas. We ensure opportunities for students to engage in critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication, collaboration and creativity as part of their school experience. We provide for varied and effective use of technology and real-world application of knowledge and skills.
Our students receive specialized courses in music instruction and performance, library media, computer science, robotics, horticulture and hydroponics, and physical education. Struggling students and those with special needs are offered the additional supports needed to grow and flourish as learners.
All of our classroom teachers have earned Master's degrees in Education. Most of our students are of Caribbean or Middle Eastern descent.
"When a man starts out to build a world,
He starts first with himself."
