Well, the era of Mrs. Lindy has come to an end as principal of the NYC G&T program at PS 33 Chelsea Prep in District 2.  She took a once failing school from zero to hero in her 10 years at the school launching the G&T program in 2009-2010 school year with just 14 students that has turned into over 300+ students in the gifted program at the school. Congrats to Mrs. Lindy as she retires and is able to spend more time with her family.  The new interim principal will be Cindy Wang. She will be holding Open Office Hours from Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 through Thursday, July 16th, from 10am-12pm at PS 33 at 9th Ave. and 26th Street.

Here’s a nice tribute poem for Mrs. Lindy written by the PTA from PS 33:

The time has come to say goodbye
10 years have passed – yes – time does fly

A principal of epic style
Always going the extra mile

Never a sick day, never to rest
Always striving to make Chelsea Prep best

Grants and donation she was always seeking
Of bettering our world she was always speaking

From Highline to hoedown all the year through
Whitney, Hudson Guild, Audubon too

Teaching the children compassion and empathy
In September our school may seem so empty

True – in our hearts she will always endure
Missing her though – we will – for sure

Our final words of thanks won’t suffice
Our gratitude – we say more than thrice

Thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you again
Administrator, teacher and most of all friend

Your hard work and dedication will always be treasured
A principal and woman truly beyond measure

With love and appreciation, The PS33 Family

Was truly sorry to see her go. She had put together a really wonderful G&T program which has already significantly deteriorated. (In only one year!) The inexperience of the new interim principal really shows with increased fighting and tension on the playground . . . punching, etc.
