Here at the Queens Historical Society we are looking for bright minds to join us in an exciting family workshop to help us illuminate the past and shine bright into the future. Electricity is all around us and powers almost everything we use in our daily lives, from our cellphones to our televisions. But what makes a light bulb turn on and how does electricity work? Not only are you going to learn the answers to these magnetic questions, but we are going to help you build your very own electrifying circuit! Join us for Circuits and Currents: Its Electric!

    Children produce a Musical from Auditions to Opening Night!
    Each production is a one-act musical. All participants will audition and be cast in one production only. This approach allows Serious Fun to provide more lead and featured roles for the children, creating an in-depth and concentrated experience.

    What do children do?
    Work with industry professionals to rehearse & perform the script, songs & dances, create the costumes & props, build the sets, run the lights & sound, and manage the front of house for a children’s musical.

    Who can attend?
    Children ages 8 through 13 years old.

ParticipatoryBudgeting2019LogoIf you live in Council-member Constantinides’ District 22 in Queens, you can vote for a joint Q300 project (with other local schools) that has been selected for the ballot: replacing some water fountains in highly trafficked areas with refillable water stations. See the full list of projects and voting sites here (https://council.nyc.gov/costa-constantinides/pb/8/) Voting takes place from Saturday, March 30, 2019 to Sunday, April 7, 2019. You can go to a delegated site to vote this year or vote online at pbnyc.org/vote (if you are not in District 22, you can vote for projects in your own district if they participate).

Fours years ago, Q300 teamed up with IS 126 and PS 166 to present Park 126 on the ballot. Park 126 is the renovation of the IS 126 school yard… and it won! Please participate in this process if you can! Let’s do this! For questions about our projects contact: communityaffairs@q300pta.org.
