Hello, we all appreciate the arrival of November and it is here. As the leaves fall, it signals a time of year when we celebrate the greater school community and give thanks for all of the blessings in our lives. The connection of school, home, and community is an essential part of P255Q’s vision and mission. With our weekly community experience walks, our elementary students are currently integrating our geography unit of study by learning the names of streets as well as learning how to navigate them safely. They may also be collecting leaves for an art project. Our middle school students engage in pre-vocational experiences as they are open the School Store in which they learn shopping, stocking, and management skills. They may also use some of local stores as models to practice functional academic skills. Our high school students are beginning real work experiences with St. John’s University, CVS drugstores and Visiting Nursing Services. We are proud of all of the work our students accomplish while engaged in these community activities.
November is also a time for parent teacher conferences. This is a great opportunity for us to update each other on student progress. Attending conferences provides a chance for teachers to share information specific to your child and for parents to ask important questions.
We just had a school movie night, which was attended by over 70 family members and students. It was a huge success enjoyed by everyone. Keep checking the school calendar and the school website p225q.org for upcoming events, we hope to see you and your family at one of them soon.
