Our principal, Louis Pavone, is dedicated to providing the best education available to the students of P.S./I.S. 78Q.
I want to wish all of our families a happy holiday season and a Happy New Year! Remember that school is closed Monday December 26, 2022 through Monday January 2, 2023. We return to school on Tuesday January 3, 2023.

Please know that our school community of teachers, support staff and administrators are here to help. If you or your child need support, our administration, our teachers, our school psychologist, guidance counselors, and social workers are available. Please reach out to us to let us know. As educators, we strive to frame conversations surrounding equity as being part of your child’s overall school experience. There is no place for hatred in our school community. Our commitment is and has always been to create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students.

Thank you for your continued support and work you do with your children. I am grateful to all of you for your dedication in providing a high quality education for your children.

“Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving.
We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it – but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

– Oliver Wendell Holmes
