  • Take our Leader in Me Family Survey-Your Voice Counts

    As you know our school has been implementing a whole-school transformational process called the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

    Our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are all parents/guardians to participate.

    Please complete the below survey (without sharing your name or other identifying information). The survey is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback from one member of every household.

    The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child's experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.

    Please take this survey: https://www.leaderinme.com/s/ps-128-bensonhurst-ny/families

    Please complete the survey by: June 13, 2024.

    We thank you in advance for your time and support!!
