NYC Junior Ambassadors to the United Nations: Congratulation to PS/IS 78Q’s 7th grade class for being chosen (for the 2nd YEAR!) to be a part of NYC Junior Ambassadors to the United Nations. Only 20 schools are selected per year. This year’s activities include: a personal tour of UN, a classroom visit by a UN diplomat, a big project that makes an impact on the world, and an exhibition and year-end ceremony where work is presented-attended by local and international leaders. Last year our students took action on climate change: painted a mural, designed and distributed educational fliers, started a social media campaign, engineered a 3D model of a futuristic “green” Long Island City, NY, prototyped a climate change kit, and hosted a conversation with Australian ambassador!

About PS/IS 78Q PTA

The PS/IS 78Q Parent Teachers Association, founded in June of 2008, is a registered 501(c)3 not for profit organization established to help support the PS/IS 78 Robert F. Wagner Jr. public school located in Long Island City, Queens. Every parent or primary caregiver of a child who attends PS/IS 78Q is a member of the PTA.

We remain committed to enriching the learning experiences of our children. This year, not only do we want to continue funding the efforts we have supported in the past, our goal is to also seek out and provide new opportunities for our children.

Mission Statement: The PS/IS 78Q PTA is committed to academic excellence, creativity, and wellness. We aim to create an environment that sparks intellectual curiosity by fostering the social, moral, physical, and emotional development of each child. We strive to build a strong and engaged parent community to support the efforts and vision of our school.
