  • Year End Message

    Dear Harbor View School Families, 

    As this very unusual school year draws to a close, I want to thank you for all the support and patience you have shown these past 10 months. It has been my honor to serve as your Principal this year and as I reflect on this school year, I am moved by the resilience of our entire school community.  Last July as I prepared to take on the role of Interim Acting Principal, I was filled with feelings of anxiousness, fear and uncertainty.  As the year went on, I was amazed by the level of commitment, determination and perseverance our entire community showed every day. 

    We had successes and some challenges, yet despite all, we continued the important work that ensured the safety and educational needs of our students. There are countless people to whom I owe an expression of gratitude and hope that we continue working together in the coming years. Our teachers, our paraprofessionals, our office staff, our parent coordinator, and my partner Ms. Sanchez have worked so hard to make this school year a success.  I am truly grateful to have worked with this dedicated team of educators.  

    Families had the option this school year to choose in person or remote options.  We know that this year was frustrating at times through many adjustments, closures, technology challenges and uncertainty.  Our Harbor View families showed up not only for their own children but for our entire school community.  Your continuous feedback and support in countless ways made this school year successful. Many of you found ways to make Ms. Sanchez and I feel appreciated through it all.  You brought smiles to the faces of our teachers and entire staff with your kind words and gestures.  We thank you and look forward to many more years of collaboration and partnership in our very special and unique school community. 

    Ms. Sanchez and I want to express our pride for all our students have accomplished this year.  Our students endured so much in the 15 months and have been able to stay focused and have shown grit through it all.  Their love for the Harbor View School was evident and our entire school community is very proud of every student.  We wish our graduates a wonderful middle school experience and look forward to seeing our returning students in the Fall of 2021.  We will be working all summer to ensure that 2021/2022 is an engaging and exciting year filled with opportunities for our community to flourish through positive relationships, partnerships that align to our mission of creating real world life experiences that excite students about learning and family engagement that help us connect and grow as a school community. 

    I thank all of you for choosing our unique school community and on behalf of our entire staff wish you a safe and enjoyable summer with your families.  

    With Gratitude, 

    Hanin Hasweh

    Principal

  • Health and Wellness Ambassador

    We are happy to announce that the NYC DOE has selected our school to participate in the Family and Community Wellness Collective and select a Family Healing Ambassador for our school community. 

    This initiative is a new parent-facing program that hinges on peer-to-peer support, where a community of parents or caregivers who want to learn more about how to care for themselves and their school community can volunteer and participate in a 4-part professional learning series to become their school’s Family Healing Ambassador. 

    The person selected will also receive a $500 stipend for their service.

From the Staten Island Advance!

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While a new dedicated maritime-themed school is no longer being pursued on Staten Island, several schools in the borough are integrating maritime curriculum into a variety of subjects.

PS 59, New Brighton, has been incorporating maritime-themed curriculum into its daily teachings by focusing on the impact of the New York Harbor and the Billion Oyster Project -- which works to restore 1 billion live oysters in the harbor over the next two decades -- across all grades from pre-K to fifth grade.
