We Empower Students to Realize Their Potential ! 

The community of P.224Q continuously develops and refines their educational practices supporting their beliefs that students learn best when: · They are taught through well-planned targeted, and differentiated lessons designed to give all students access to the curriculum and accelerate their learning · When they are presented with learning activities related to a lesson that challenge their thinking and give multiple opportunities for application of material taught · When they are given immediate meaningful feedback and opportunities to self-assess · When they are taught in an environment where they feel safe to learn and take risks to develop their understanding

Letters from Principal Jamie 

Dear P.224Q Family,

My name is Jamie Allen and I have both the honor and privilege of assuming the reigns of leadership as the Interim Acting Principal of P.224Q until a new principal is appointed. Prior to this, I have been an Assistant Principal at P.224Q for our revered and soon to be retired Principal Desmond Park.

Everyone across the school community will miss Mr. Park’s leadership, his depth of instructional knowledge, equaled only by his passion and of course his presence in our day-to-day activities. We wish him the very best in his retirement.

Our lives are dramatically different now than they were one year ago. Despite the numerous changes and challenges we have experienced; I want to assure you that the accomplished staff of P.224Q will continue to provide a safe, inclusive, highly rigorous and exceptional instruction to our students. I will not hesitate to praise the quality of instruction and the immense dedication of our teachers, paraprofessionals, related service providers, school aides, nurses, and secretaries that I have observed over the years.

Thank you for entrusting your children to the P.224Q community; we will continue to put them first and their safety will be our utmost priority. I encourage you to reach out to me, to any of the assistant principals, the parent coordinator, or our unit coordinators with any questions, thoughts, and concerns. I look forward to meeting with you all virtually and in-person in the future. Please continue to be on the look-out for on-going communications from the Department of Education and our P.224Q community.

Thank you very much for your continued support.
