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!

Nakoley Renville,

Vision/Mission Statement

At PS 208K, all students can achieve mastery and proficiency in all content areas. Students achieve this by having multiple opportunities to have discussions, wonder, explore and question.

 Our school family supports our students by providing targeted instruction based on data informed inquiry work by which teachers engage in frequent assessment of student progress. We provide access to learning experiences that lead to college and career readiness.

 We create a safe and inclusive environment that encourages students to take risks and be independent. We instill the values of accountability, collaboration and trust in order to inspire and propel our students to become outstanding citizens.

 We stand together as parents, school staff and the community to let our students know that they are cared for and they matter!
