Queens Community House After-School Program: Middle School

Dear Middle School Parents and Guardians,

My name is David DiTrapani, and I am the new Site Director for the QCH After-School Program here at P.S. / I.S. 499. I’m happy to be working with your students, and I’m looking forward to a great school year!

I have received a couple of emails regarding a parent orientation with an errant day and date. Please note that we will not be hosting a parent orientation tonight (9/19) or tomorrow (9/20). Instead, we will be hosting our parent orientation next Tuesday during Family Night, which will be held from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM. If your child is attending QCH After-School, please make sure you attend one of the mandatory information sessions during that timeframe.

If you have any questions or concerns, please always feel free to contact me. Email is the best method of reaching me, but you are always able to call the school and ask for the QCH office.
