What I remember about P.S 41 was the new wing which was the auditorium. It was about 1979 and I was a senior,going into J.HS. 113 and the teachers at P.S 41 prepared us so well by taking class time to explore the J.H.S. 113campus and check out their extensive library. The teachers at P.S 41 was the most instructive any child could. Which for the class sizes were small and the classrooms were diverted the instructions was always top notched. My first teacher was Ms. P. Levine, she was as beautiful as understanding, and even as I turn 65 years of age I wonder about my classmates and what fruit that education we received brought.? Doctors, lawyers or engineers .But whatever happened to us, I know our foundation was formed at P.S. 41.
