Principal's Message

Dear P.S. 54 Families,

 A warm welcome to one and all! Welcome to our school website which reflects the work we have been doing on building community and working together for our children. I can't wait for you to be updated with important information about what's happening here at PS 54.

In my 30+ years in the NYC Department of Education, I have learned that we need to nurture open communication and build community for our school to thrive. Please know that I welcome you to reach out to me and any member of our school community if you need support. 

Within our magnet theme of Environmental Science, Technology and Community Wellness, our goal is to ensure that our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally as they prepare to be the global citizens of the 21st century. 

This Website has been created to guide you. Its purpose is to serve as a reference tool. Let us know if we missed anything. 

My door is open, and I welcome your involvement. Please feel free to call the school or email me at if you have any questions or concerns.


Emma Velazquez, Principal
