Dear Families,

The holiday season is upon us and before you know it, we will be celebrating a New Year!

A New Year means new beginnings and an opportunity to reflect on the past and set new goals.

As I begin to reflect, I have thought long and strong about how life is filled with wonder, challenges, highs and lows, celebrations, special moments and memories that define our experience as a human. I have reflected on how these events impact and define our purpose and how precious every moment is…how fast time passes.

As the Principal of PS 38, I have been so very fortunate to nurture and grow this school through the years building a culture and vision to ensure all children not only gain academic excellence, but are motivated and inspired through memorable learning experiences. 

PS 38 has been my home away from home for over 20 years.  My journey at PS 38 began as a Literacy Coach for 4 years before moving into the role of Assistant Principal for 8 years and then becoming the Principal where I would lead this amazing staff and learning community for the past 8 ½ years.

It has been a joy leading this school and watching your children learn and grow.  

They amaze me with their curiosity and desire to learn and their laughter and smiles have filled my heart each and every day.   

As we get ready to bring closure to yet another year I want to share with the entire PS 38 community that I have made the bitter sweet decision to retire.

My journey at PS 38 has been a roller coaster of memorable experiences and I have truly enjoyed the ride, but it is time for me begin a new journey… to enjoy my family and all of the special moments life has to offer.  

Life is about change and change pushes us out of our comfort zone.  However, together I know the amazing staff at PS 38 will continue to take this “Little School With a Big Heart” to new heights with a new leader.  Know that our Superintendent is vetting the right candidate and will communicate soon.

The staff and children at PS 38 will always have a special place in my heart.  

Thank you for entrusting your children to me.

Believing In Children...

Inspiring Young Minds,

 Nancy Murillo
