As part of the school’s 16th annual Read Enjoy and Discover program, JQA was recently visited by Suffolk County Legislator Susan Berland, who read two of her favorites, Faith McNulty’s “Arty the Smarty” and Tamara Kitt’s “The Boy Who Fooled the Giant,” to the excited students.

READ is a collaborative effort among parents, students and staff to build a reading partnership between home and school and to help foster the love of reading at home. READ programs encourage parents to read with their children every day over a two-week period during the month of February. The JQA students read more than 11,000 books, meeting the school’s goal of 10,000.


Character Building at JQA Ends With Fun Glow Run

Character Building at JQA Ends With Fun Glow Run

During a two-week Mindspark Mystery Lab program, JQA students experienced a themed program combining STEAM skills – involving science, technology, engineering, arts and math – with character building, culminating in a Boosterthon Glow Run on Jan. 18. Donations raised during this event will fund an upgrade for JQA’s playground via the school’s Parent Faculty Club.

“The students had a great time learning all about these character traits and participating in the glow run,” said Associate Principal Heather Levine.
