Events

Building community both during school hours and outside of them, with all of our families and neighbors, is an important part of Queens Paideia’s culture. We organize events, field trips, and activities throughout the year that support our students’ learning, enable parents to know and form connections with each other, and/or offer a chance for students to demonstrate what they have learned.

 

 

Hands On

Throughout the year, students had ongoing opportunities to build, create, move around, and explore, while also learning to focus and invest the tenacity required to learn news skills and new content knowledge.

Art All Around Us

All year, students made art, both integrated into the full curriculum and as part of weekly art sessions. The year culminated with a trip to Central Park to paint and with our annual art show.

Winter Fundraiser

To get through the dark days of winter, students organized a running club that did lunchtime runs twice a week (1.5 miles) and collected sponsor money for Pediatric Cancer Research. They raised a lot of money and turned icy lemons into heartwarming lemonade.

End-of-Year Celebration

Our final event of the school year features presentations during which students spoke about specific things they learned and found challenging this year, and how they think they grew as learners and people. It was followed by a graduation ceremony.
