The Q300 PTA will hold our annual back-to-school picnic on Sunday, August 25, from 3-6pm in Rainey Park. Please join us in welcoming new families and getting together to celebrate the start of a new school year. This is a casual, bring-your-own food and drink event. An RSVP helps us get an idea of how many people will be attending for planning purposes, but is not necessary--just show up and have a good time. If you can help out with the event, thank you! Feel free to sign up for one of the volunteer shifts listed here. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new members of the Q300 community.
We expect to offer private bus service again for the 2019-20 school year to both the lower and upper division campuses. If you are interested in private transportation, please sign up through the appropriate link below:
See https://www.q300pta.net/resources/bus-info/#privatebus for more information about the 2019-2020 private bus. Please note that private bus routes are coordinated by volunteer parents and are not managed or administered by the PTA. Also, if your child is entering K-6 and you are interested in OPT (free public yellow school bus) service instead of a private bus in Queens, please contact Jenny Lando, the school’s parent coordinator, at JennyLando@Q300.org.Keep on reading this post...
