Welcome to PS #5 Home of the Cougars.
I am honored to be the Principal of PS #5. It is my pleasure to meet and to get to know the students,
parents and families that make-up this wonderful community. I am especially pleased to be a part of a caring
faculty and support staff committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe and
nurturing environment. I look forward to building on this tradition of academic excellence and cannot wait to get started.
Welcome to another exciting year at Public School #5. I encourage you to communicate with our teachers and administrators to ensure that all students are provided with a safe and secure environment, therefore, giving them the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential.
This year, we will begin our Looping Program in 1st and 2nd grade. We will also continue our technology initiative of increasing Chromebooks to all our students.
I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child's education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. Academics require practice; just like soccer, dance and other sports.
My door is always open so please do not hesitate to contact me or the PS #5 family.
Thank you for your continued support.
Nelson Lopez, Principal
