In March we will be having parent/teacher conferences following our March Report Cards. As teachers we want you to be informed on your child’s progress in school so that you can also take an active role at home to help them. Here are some questions you could ask your child’s teacher:
· Does my child participate?
· Is my child on grade level in all academic areas?
· How can I help my child increase their reading level?
· What questions could I ask to make sure my child understands what they’re reading?
· What are my child’s strengths and weaknesses?
· How is my child doing socially?
· What could I do at home to support what you are doing in the classroom?
· Make sure to inform your child’s teacher on any changes at home that may affect your child’s academic/ social behavior.
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!

P.S. 120Q is proud to announce that through our partnership with Pennies for Patients, we were able to collect a total of $1571.67 for the Leukemia and Lymphona Society, the world’s largest non-profit health organization dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers. The Pennies for Patients program helps raise money to fund research for therapies that save the lives of blood cancer patients. We are so proud of all of our Dragons for their generosity, and would like to give a special shout out to Ms. Difino and the Student Council for their hard work organizing this important initiative. Go Dragons!
