Our principal, Louis Pavone, is dedicated to providing the best education available to the students of P.S./I.S. 78Q.
We hope you and your family are all safe and well. We want you all to know how much we miss all of our students.

Please know that our school community of teachers, support staff and administration is here to help, even as we are not together in our school building. If you or your child need support, our school psychologist, guidance counselors, and social workers are available. Please reach out to us to let us know.

The events that have transpired are very troubling. We are all being tested as a society with coronavirus and racial injustice. Both demand our attention.

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.

“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
