Congratulations Sumra, Tasmia, Angely, and Renee for Participating in the Queens Borough Soccer League!
On Friday, April 7th, Governor Cuomo approved the FY2018 New York State budget, which included the Excelsior Scholarship. What this means for our students, in short, is that tuition is now free at SUNY Page 3 of 4 and CUNY, 2-year and 4-year, public colleges and universities across New York State for families earning less than $100,000. The scholarship covers any remaining tuition costs after TAP and Pell grants are applied. This program will be phased in over the next 3 years, beginning in Fall 2017 and then extending to families whose household income is below $125,000/yr by 2020.

Sex Education Parent Notification Letters
Middle and high schools will send each parent/guardian a notification letter (below) prior to his or her child receiving sexual health lessons as part of comprehensive health education. Parents who have questions about what their child will be learning in school should talk to their principal.
QCH was awarded a spot in the Lego Robotics Competition that took place today. Our young ladies have been working on this for about three months now and I am honored and overjoyed to announce they took home FIRST PLACE. They competed against 250 other students to take home the win. This means they will be moving on to the semi finals to earn themselves a spot in nationals. Please congratulate them on this hard earned victory.
We'll have the trophy in our office if you want to come see it. If you want to see them in action our robotics team meets Mondays from 315 to 5pm.
