Welcome to PS 120Q!
Thanks to the generosity of Councilman Peter Koo, who awarded Shadow Box Theatre and P.S.120Q a CASA Initiative Grant, our Saturday program was a success! Come see our students and parents perform with their handmade puppets! This project supports ENL students and their parents in learning English through the art of puppetry. Families sculpted, painted, sewed and decorated their puppets under master puppeteer and artist Jane Catherine Shaw. Based on Brooklyn author and illustrator Naoko Stoop’s Red Knit Cap Girl, the characters set out on an adventure to reach the moon. Do you think they can reach the moon? Come see for yourself!
