  4. You are invited to participate in a parent engagement forum on August 5th from 7pm to 9pm. This parent forum is hosted by The Parent Leaders of Queens South (PLQS) to discuss the topic of Schools Reopening for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to answer parent questions, they have invited the Superintendents of D27, D28, D29 and QHS, along with other important decision makers. They are asking parents who would like to participate to use the link THIS LINK to register and to submit questions for our panelist. Registered participants will receive a link to the Zoom meeting.
  5. Encourage your scholars to apply to Code Next, a FREE computer science education program run by Google. The program provides Latinx and Black students the skills they need for long and rewarding careers in computer-science related fields. This year the program will be virtual due to Covid-19.
