Message from the School Director


Dear Families,


I look forward to working with you to fulfill our vision of educational excellence for every scholar. Your support is crucial to our success. Research has revealed a clear link between family involvement and academic performance, and we seek to leverage that power to realize each child's full potential.


Thank you again for choosing Canarsie Ascend. We have an exciting and productive year ahead of us!
