Welcome to KB13


Welcome to another wonderful year at P.S. 41. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your children this year. My name is Mrs. Hennessy and my paraprofessional is Ms. Perdomo. Kindergarten is an important year for your child. Ms. P. and I are working together with your children to assist them in becoming readers, writers and mathematicians. This is a year of exploration and learning to become independent in many ways. ASK your child to talk about the events of the day as they have lots of information to share with you!! 

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! 

Please send your child to school everyday! We 

have so much to learn!

Reminder: We have gym every Wednesday:

sweatpants/sweatshirts/t-shirts and sneakers are encouraged!

If you have any concerns and want to speak with 

me, make an appointment:

Parent Outreach time is Tuesdays from 2:30 -2:55

My contact information is CHennessy@schools.nyc.gov
