PS 87 Parent Coordinator: Sandra GuirguisPhone: 212-678-2826 ext. 3
Welcome to PS 87! The Parent Coordinators job is to help families strengthen their connection with our school. The role of Parent Coordinator was created to be the front line in facilitating communication between parents, teachers, and staff.
I am Sandra Guirguis, PS 87's new Parent Coordinator. I have been a parent in the community for over 6 years and both of my daughters are graduates of PS87. When I moved to New York City from Canada, it was through the direction of some wonderful parent coordinators including our own beloved Margaret that I found reassurance and guidance as I navigated my way through the challenging big city school system. The PS87 community really is like a big family and my door is always open to help with a question or a concern. When I am not hanging out in the school you can find me strolling the neighborhood with my dog Memphis.
As the Parent Coordinator, I can also assist you with getting in contact with your child's teacher, staff members or support service providers. Please bring any concerns, questions, or issues to my attention and I will try to direct you through the proper channels for the best solution to the situation. It is not always necessary to see the Principal or Assistant Principals about a concern or issue.
In addition, you will see emails from me throughout the year concerning news at school. I look forward to getting to know all of you in the years to come.
