A Message from the Principal

  • Dear Beloved Montessori School 31 Families,


    We are in unprecedented times in our Country and I do wish to express my sincere hope for you & your beloved family to be safe and well!

    It is now a time to gather together and continue to provide hope and love as a family and a community of learning. This too shall pass!!


    During this time, please know that we ask that our children continue their learning through the hybrid instructional work that was provided by Montessori School 31 and the Yonkers Public Schools’ Electronic Learning site. Please access these online instructional programs, in an effort to continue the learning that our teachers have so beautifully begun.


    In addition to the instructional hybrid work, please know that our students are prepared to engage in:

    • Critical Thinking and Conversations: which includes simple/complex problems in new ways so that they may come up with solutions that apply skills and knowledge from across content areas. Let them explore and engage in conversations with you…
    • Communication: They are prepared to share their thoughts, ideas, and questions in a digital environment.
    • Collaboration: We are not alone. Our community of learners and our awesome leader, Dr. Edwin Quezada, and his leadership teams will allow us to successfully support our students' continued education.


    Parents, in all that has been planned for our children, please don't forget to take care of yourself and each other.


    We continue to be here for you…


    Warm regards,

    Dr. Banks
