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.
You will find that your child's teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive relationship with them.
I look forward to working together in educating your children.
You as parents are the most critical part of our school’s success. You must continue to take an active role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and good work habits.
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 football,
dance and other sports.
Our technology plan will continue to prepare our students for the future. This year we will continue by implementing more
Chromebooks for our students’ to use. My goal is to have a Chromebook for every student within the next couple of years.
My door is always open so please do not hesitate to contact me or the PS #5 family.
Thank you for your support.
Nelson Lopez, Principal
