Staff Appreciation


As you know, the impact our wonderful teachers and staff have on the lives of our children is priceless.  Sometimes the best way to show appreciation is to say thank you! So, we want to hear from you! Who is your champion at P.S. 143?

"Every child deserves a champion — an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be." -Rita F. Pierson

This quote has always resonated with me because children, more often than ever, need role models. At P.S. 143, everyone works towards supporting our students -- that is why we are here! 

I encourage parents and students to submit a thank you letter to their champion at P.S. 143 who has supported them.  Remember, champions can be any staff member at P.S. 143.  Classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, school safety agents, custodians, therapists, school aides, main office staff, and more have a huge impact.  We are a community dedicated to serving our students and we recognize each and every person has an invaluable role! 

Submit your letter via email directly to your champion with the subject line “My Champion.”  You can find email addresses of our incredible staff here!


Teacher Appreciation Week is Monday, May 4 - Friday, May 8th!

Feel free to show your child's teacher extra love this week!
