Welcome to PS 120Q!
On October 5th, 2017, P.S.120Q held its Student Council Election. Representatives from the 4th and 5th Grades prepared speeches to explain to their classmates why they should be a part of our Student Council Body. The speeches were full of wonderful ideas of ways that we could continue to build upon our school community. Tune in to see who our winners are!
A huge congratulations to Ms. Day, the Green Team, and the Sustainability Mural Club for their big win at the NYC Sustainability expo this week. Everyone loved our recycled spork murals, and we were chosen as the Most Innovative project, with a prize of $5000 to be spent for sustainability projects next school year. Go Dragons!!
Our math department and several other teachers prepared a fun family night to welcome our upper grade students and their families for an evening of project based math learning! This circus-themed event was fun for the whole family as they worked together to explore math concepts and have a great time. Next year we look forward to having another math night, as well as a Family STEM night! We hope to see you there!
PS 120 hosted our 2nd Annual Multicultural Festival last week and this year we were excited to open the doors of our cafeteria to the community for an International Feast! Many families and restaurants donated food for the celebration.
This week, we welcomed Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and Councilman Peter Koo to our school to celebrate the groundbreaking for the construction of our schoolyard. It was a wonderful event and many of our students participated in the celebration. Please see below for a few of the features in local news!
