Welcome From The Principal
Your Input is Invaluable!
It is a pleasure to welcome you and your children to the 2019 - 2020 school year at P4Q.
I look forward to an educationally productive and a happy year for your children. The standards of education continue to change and become more challenging with each year. We ask that you share the responsibility with us - participate in parent workshops, PTA, events in your child's classroom and the Learning Environment Survey. The school staff considers itself to be part of your family community, with the same goals in mind for "our" children.
I look forward to meeting you at various events throughout the year.
Please call us if there are any issues or concerns and we will help in any way we can. Parents may email me at AQuinlan@schools.nyc.gov.
Please complete the "Fifteen Things About Me" survey so that we may get to know your child better. The form can be printed and sent in with your child or emailed to your child's teacher. Thank you!
Paint Night at 179
"On Friday, November 16th Project Arts in collaboration with the P4 PTA and SLT hosted their second annual “A Night of Paint and Thanks.” Parents and students from all P4 sites were in attendance. Lisa Tempro, one of the visual arts teachers at 179, led the painting demonstration. This year’s painting was a tape resist painting of an autumn tree at sunset. Crisp fall colors were used to create the beautiful backgrounds."
Our Parent Academy Workshop held October 23rd covered many topics including ideas for communicating in the home/community, adapting house and routines to increase communication with family/siblings, increasing social interactions, and definitions and terms used in IEPs and other educational reports.
