 The PTA meeting is a great opportunity to meet the Executive Board Members, other parents, the administration, teachers and our coordinators. During this meeting, our Assistant Principals will be speaking about the assessments utilized to evaluate our children and each coordinator will be speaking about their unit. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions.

It is vital to the success of a school to have parent involvement.

We know it is far to travel for some of you, but it is important to attend meetings when your schedule allows. Respite care will be available and we will serve pizza for all!

Family Fun Night Recap

IMG_1185Last Thursday we had the annual PS255Q “Family Fun Night.” Approximately 20% of our families attended and 50 staff members. It was an incredible evening filled with fun events including but not limited to:


Picture taking

Face painting


Wii activities

The PTA sponsored two bouncy houses in the gym as well as great food and prizes, cotton candy, and more.

All that attended were able to enjoy the night in a safe environment full of fun and food. A special thanks to our parent leadership team that organized the night, set it up and cleaned up after the festivities. They are remarkable and work incredibly hard.

I would also like to thank Yocasta (Parent Coordinator) and the PS255Q teaching staff that worked during the night or just came by to support the event.

It was THE BEST FAMILY FUN NIGHT ever and I hope next year more of you will come and enjoy an evening designed just for our kids and their families.

You will have a great time!

Yours truly,

Richard Marowitz
