What's New at Public School 52 Queens?

Events in our school:

Welcome back to school night! Thank you to all of the parents, teachers, and students who attended. It was great to see everyone again. So many wonderful people came out. Let's keep up the great work. Together we can make a difference!

Character Day: October 2013
All students (and staff) are encouraged to come to school dressed as their favorite book character: Amazing Grace, Olivia, Harry Potter, Cinderella, Nate the Great, even Moody Judy! Also join us for our Character Day parade as we celebrate the fun in reading. Take a look at our photo album and see if you can recognize any characters from our previous years.

November 2013
Classroom elections will be held on Tuseday, November 19th. School wide elections will follow. Let's campaign and vote for our school leaders!

Parent-Teacher Conferences:
Our students have made personal learning goals and are working steadfastly to meet those goals. Parent-Teacher afternoon and evening is a wonderful opportunity to come into the classroom and see the hard work that is taking place and the progress being made by our students towards meeting their personal goals.
Thanksgiving Classroom Feasts: To be determined by each classroom teacher.
We're happy to celebrate, share (and eat!) delicious and nutritious foods as we give thanks for the many privileges we have been given. Please look for grade-level and or teacher notices to advise when classroom feasts will be scheduled. This is always a really fun and festive time in school!
