Welcome from Our Principal
Dear UNMS community,

Welcome!  Something that makes UNMS so special is the goal we share of providing a nurturing and valuable school experience for our children. Being a part of the UNMS community as your principal and assistant principal these years has been a wonderfully rewarding experience. 

I believe that education plays a crucial role in the successful academic, emotional, and physical development of every child. As a former New York City public school student, I was taught and inspired by an amazing group of educators who instilled in me a passion for learning and a commitment to make a difference. I am committed to work relentlessly to support a learning environment where each child is cared for and valued. I am committed to providing opportunities that promote collaboration between our UNMS community members because together we make the difference!

I thank you in advance for your support and collaboration.

Respectfully,
Laura Peynado-Castro
Principal
