Dear 165Q Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. We are very excited about the teaching and learning this year . Students will have many opportunities to learn, share, and enjoy being a student. At 165Q , we pride ourselves on educating the whole child. Not only do we have a rigorous curriculum in all content areas we also have a robust arts department, and wonderful enrichment opportunities. This year we now have a laser sharp focus on supporting all students with intentional conversations about their social emotional well being. Staff members will speak with students daily about their feelings and how to manage those feelings. We will also highlight our 3Bs with a focus on being responsible #ResponsibilityRocks .

We are being very intentional about ensuring all parents/guardians know your voices are valued and very necessary. We want families to come in, ask questions, visit classrooms on First Fridays every month, meet with me during coffee and conversation, and attend monthly PTA meetings. You are key stakeholders and we want to hear from you.

PS 165’s theme for this school year is: From Many...We Are One , One Mission, One Vision, 165Q. Please visit our website regularly as this is one of our communication tools we use to update families about school events. In addition to updates our website also has The PS 165Q Parent Handbook which details our policies, procedures, and protocols.

Should you have any questions please feel free to reach out you your child’s teacher, our Parent Coordinator Mrs. Trina Jacobs-Rivers at TJacobs6@schools.nyc.gov , or a member of the administrative team.

Thank you,

Principal T. Davis-Nealy
