Want to be a volunteer coach or know somebody who does? It’s a great way to be involved (and get some exercise, too!) Because the Boys & Girls Club is adamant about ensuring the safety of your children, all volunteers are screened with a drug test. The YMCA will cover the cost of the testing, however.

April 10, 2014 Update: Here is the link to PS 150Q’s proposal

Please volunteer!

Thanks to a parent volunteer, PS 150Q is moving forward with a school garden registered with Grow NYC. With the help of Ms. Parache, we are assembling a team consisting of administration, teachers, custodians and parents.

We need one parent to assist in coordinating the grant card. Basically, it’s writing out a plan to determine how much to request in grants for seeds and other portions that require money. It’s a great opportunity to volunteer and be part of this innovative project – and you could do it from home.

But please do it soon – Spring is already here!

Getting Fit for Spring!

Everybody is DONE with winter! We’re dying to shed these layers and get out but unfortunately, frigid temperatures and rock hard snow still rule the outdoors. So, at P.S. 150Q, we’re implementing “Getting Fit for Spring.”

Each day, at about the same time – an upbeat song will stream over the loudspeaker and all members of the community will have to stop everything and move around. More details will follow as the idea is finalized, but you can help by encouraging your child to take advantage of this free moment when it comes. Talk to them about it and show them how to loosen up, dance in place or just stretch.

It’s a great way to get kids to sync with their bodies, decompress and get fit for Spring.

UPDATE: You are invited to the Launch Date, Monday, March 10th at 08:30 am in the Blue Area of the cafeteria. Please join us.
