From the Desk of Ms. Renville/Principal's Page

Welcome to PS 208, The Elsa Ebeling School.  At PS 208, we are committed to providing a quality education for all students.  It is our goal to use the talents, interests and excitement of our students and staff to strive for academic and civic excellence.

It is my pleasure to serve the students, families and teachers of P.S. 208.  As I often say, P.S. 208 is our home away from home and together we make up our school community.  I am looking forward to all the wonderful successes that we will share together.  As a school community, we will collaborate on projects that enhance deep thinking and learning.  I know that together, through our hard work, perseverance and dedication, our school, P.S. 208 will continue to be a school of Excellence!
