Located in the Bronx, P.S. 5 Port Morris firmly believes that its students are tomorrow’s leaders. The mission statement of the school shows the determination of the community to come together and help students succeed as individuals, celebrating and cultivating their unique skills and talents. Skoolbo comes right alongside this mission, ensuring that each child will have a firm foundation of core skills necessary for success in their future schooling and career.
Committed to Educational Technology
For years, P.S. 5 has been committed to becoming proficient with the ever-changing technology of today’s world. In 2009, P.S.5X was selected to be a part of the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) initiative, giving each child access to a laptop everyday. This same, steadfast commitment is apparent in P.S. 5’s recent accomplishment of reaching and surpassing the 1 millionth answer mark on Skoolbo! We know that there is much more to come as they achieved this goal well within several months of getting started on the program.
We especially want to recognize Sonia Edwards, P.S. 5’s very own Technology Teacher, whose hard work and dedication has resulted in such amazing achievements from the students at Port Morris!
Keep up the great work, kids!
