Parent Coordinator at Queens High School Of Teaching
back to a new school year! If you have a moment, please
So that we may better serve you and partner
up with our students and their families.
In 2002, the Mayor and Chancellor created the position of “Parent
Coordinator” to ensure there was someone in each school directly
responsible for supporting families. Parent Coordinators are the first
people families should contact when they have questions or concerns
about their children's schools.
As I start my fourth year as your Parent Coordinator, I am excited to
get the year going. I look forward to greeting familiar faces and
welcoming new faces.
We are so pleased that you are joining our family of learners. I will
assist you in building a partnership in support of your child. At QHST,
there are many on our team – administrators, teachers, and support staff
– who are all committed to ensure your child’s academic success. We look
forward to working together to provide a wonderful year of learning and
academic growth for your child.
As your child’s first and most important teacher, we need you to help us
get to know your child so that we can offer him/her the best learning
experience possible. Please feel free to take advantage of our open door
policy. You don’t have to wait for Parent-Teacher Conferences to meet
with your child’s teachers, but you can make an appointment to meet with
them throughout the year. We are here to support you.
High School can be a very challenging time for teenagers and Parents.
With issues such as; identity development, peer-pressure and negative
influences in media, it is NOW that you need to be most involved. One of
the keys to your child’s success will be your ongoing involvement in our
school community. Our PTA meetings are the BEST way to obtain valuable,
up-to-date information about what’s going on at QHST. Meetings are
generally held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30p.m. We also
provide workshops and family centered events to empower and support you.
Also, if you have a business, special craft, hobby, gift, or time that
you can donate throughout the day or at events please let me know. We
are always looking for volunteers and parents with innovative ideas to
increase parent involvement. I can be reached at 718-736-7100 ext 1364
from 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Monday - Friday. Or you can E-mail
cruth@Schools.nyc.gov I’m here to assist you with your questions,
concerns, and comments. Please also stop by just to say hello!
