Posted on Updated on

Welcome back to school for our Q300 families! We’re in for a start of another amazing year. One of the great things about Q300 is the strength of our community. There’s a great wealth of resources available to help us stay informed. Please review the below sources of information. Sign up and stay informed!

Firstly, please be sure that your information is current with Q300’s Parent Coordinator, Jenny Lando. If you haven’t gotten the School Handbook, or notifications from her, please be sure to update your contact information: Jenny Lando <jennylando@q300.org>

Official PTA Communications
The PTA sends out formal bulletins through their mailing list. If you do not wish to receive the formal PTA Communications, you can unsubscribe from the link at the end of the email. To provide your contact information to the PTA, please fill out the following form: Q300 PTA Contact Form

Upcoming Events

Posted on Updated on

    Winter Auction for Summer Fun.  Now through March 1st.   Does your kid love mythology?  Soccer?  Gymnastics?  Coding?  We have several summer camp opportunities related to these themes (as well as a Pennsylvania Farm House rental) that are being auctioned from now until March 1, 2018 on an online link!!  All proceeds go to the Q300 PTA and help fund enrichment and other needed items. Anyone can bid, so please share these with friends and family!  (Camps are in several boroughs and even a sleep-away one).  Summer Camp Auction

     Annual Zumba-thon with PS 17, Mar. 9th, 5:30 pm at PS 17 campus.  Save the date for and get ready to move at our 3rd annual Zumba-thon!  There are two ways to sign up.  You can create an online platform here to get pledges and share via email and social media:  Zumba-thon Sign Up!.  Or, if you are old school, you can get paper sheet pledges (to be sent in kids’ backpacks and via google group). And, if you don’t like to dance, you can participate by helping “thon-ers” raise money but sharing their online pledge sheets!  Kids can also participate (with parent/guardian there) though it is more geared to adults! Last year, we not only had a blast but we also raised almost $4,000 (split between the schools)!  Let’s exceed that goal this year!
