A Message from Our Principal

Greetings, and welcome to P.S. 133 Fred R. Moore Academy, the home of the Bulldogs!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the P.S. 133 Fred R. Moore school website. It is our goal to make this an informative site where you can find important information about our school community. We plan to be active in keeping you informed of the activities that our students are participating in. We will be posting updates not only on school events, but on many different aspects of our students’ day and after-school activities. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Our staff works hard to prepare engaging and rewarding learning experiences for all students. At P.S. 133, we place a high value on our partnership with parents, families, and community, and we invite you to be an active part of helping students achieve their full potential.

We consider it a privilege to work with your kids every day to help them be their very best selves. We believe that each and every student has a gift to share with the world, and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and we have high expectations of ourselves to help all P.S. 133 students learn and grow into well-rounded citizens and critical thinkers. At Fred R. Moore Academy, we aim to develop leadership, social and emotional, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in elementary school, but in their overall educational journey.

To help your child be successful in school, please help them understand what is required of them to be a good learner inside and outside of the classroom. Talk about qualities and learning behaviors such as active listening, viewing errors as opportunities, working to recover from mistakes, asking questions, collaborating with peers, setting goals, having a home schedule, and tracking their own progress.

I am proud to be part of the P.S. 133 Fred R. Moore team, and I am particularly excited to make this the best year yet. I look forward to working with families to accomplish great things for our students!

Please continue to visit our website for updates throughout the year. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can reach me directly via email or by calling (212) 690.5936.
