Wishing all our families a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We have fabulous Thanksgiving feasts happening across our sites. Thank you all for your kind donations. Our students are having a fantastic time and really appreciate it.
Here is a link to some marvelous Thanksgiving work created by some of the students at our Q397 site.
The last few days of summer school at 151 were hectic to say the least. Trying to keep our students occupied and engaged between last-minute packing, labeling and the loading of the giant moving trucks, alongside the ongoing refurbishment of the roof of the main building was rather challenging. Our students got lucky with a few extra trips and had plenty of fun bowling, at the movies and in the park. We thought we’d share a few of our moments as we said goodbye to our trailer park.
But look where we are going!
School reopens on September 7th at 8.10. All former Q255@151 students should report to Q397. 32-52 37th Street, Astoria, NY 11103.
We had lots of edible, under-the-sea, seafood-free fun at our 151 site this week as we celebrate the last weeks of summer school. It’s a bitter-sweet time for us as these are also our last days at 151 in the little trailer park that we have now outgrown. Although, we are moving on to bigger, better things at our new PS397 site, we have been here a long time and we don’t all do so well with change.
Our culminating event was a Jr Chef competition. Students worked really hard, aided by our amazingly creative paraprofessionals and teachers. We created grocery lists, took community walks to shop at local stores (they will miss us!) and used joint-action routines to create some of the most remarkable under-the-sea themed feasts for our judges to taste.
Our judges were the wonderful school-aide Rosemarie and our favorite summer nurse Phong but students were especially delighted to see the special guest judge, their friend, Josephine. Dishes were marked on presentation, creativity and taste. Congratulations to the winners in each team Ms Rebecca’s class, Mr Shaun’s class and Ms Jenny’s class but it was agreed that all the dishes were amazing in their own special way.
