Summer school at P255Q is both educational and a lot of fun! This year, each unit created their own special events to commemorate the completion of another action-packed summer. Thank you to all the staff that worked so hard to provide our students with these experiences. You may have heard this before but it never gets old – You are the BEST STAFF IN NEW YORK CITY!

Principled Principals!

Autism Awareness Family Fun Night last Friday was a huge success at P255Q!

It was a great night for everyone at P255Q!

Our students, families, staff, and friends  had a great time!

There was dancing upstairs in the big gym. Downstairs was arts and crafts, tattoos, and face painting. There was staff from all our sites!    The night ended with a magic show, cotton candy, cake, and ice cream- as well as all the great prizes donated by our amazing friends and PTA!

It was a great night to LIGHT IT UP BLUE!

Valentine’s Day Dance Recap


From the Principal:

On Friday, February 26, 2016 The PTA sponsored our first student “Valentine’s Day” dance. The were 200 people including students, parents, family members and 30 of our staff members.

A DJ was hired  to play music in the gym for our children. The faces of the students were priceless as they danced the night away.

The parents and staff also had  great time right alongside the kids .

I would like to thank Nora (PTA president) as well as her team (Helen, Erica, Emily) for all their hard work and creative ideas that made this night so special. I would also like to thank our staff.

Many of our staff  helped the parents set up and clean up after the event and had a great time dancing and taking pictures (see our picture!) in the photo booth also run by a parent. Thank you Midas!

The next big event is Family Fun Night on April 14, DON’T MISS IT!!!!

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
