Giving Thanks

In this season of thanks, I am so grateful to our staff members, educators, and partners for all you have done to reopen our schools stronger than ever!

Your compassion, resilience, and commitment to our school communities are an inspiration to me and all New Yorkers.

I wish you much health, happiness, and abundance during this well-deserved break with the people you love.

In gratitude,
