Welcome to PS 64Q The Joseph P. Addabbo School

Upcoming Events

  • Stalking Awareness Class for Parents

    January is Stalking Awareness Month and united with

    Ms. Kelly (PS51Q), Ms. Cardenas (PS56Q),
    Ms. Taraby (PS63Q), Ms. Reyes (64Q), and
    Ms. Cardona (PS60Q), we will raise awareness.

    This year marks the 17th Annual National Stalking Awareness
    Month (NSAM), an annual call to action to recognize and respond
    to the serious crime of stalking.

    Although stalking is a serious issue that impacts millions of people each year, there is often a dangerous silence around the issue – both within the field of domestic violence and in the broader public. Together, we can change this.


     A good behavioral definition is a pattern of behavior directed at a
    specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.

     Common stalking behaviors include (but are not limited to): calling
    or texting excessively, following, spreading rumors, surveillance and

     Stalking is directed at a specific individual, not a group. However, stalkers may target other
    people close to the primary victim – like family members or a new boyfriend or girlfriend.

    start and help your child succeed in school.

    achieving at or above grade level in math and reading. Yet, only 39% of
    teachers say students start the school year prepared for grade-level work.

Letter to families from New York City Schools Chancellor

December 23, 2021

Dear Families,

When I became Chancellor this March, I was deeply moved to have the honor of leading the school system that
I grew up in as a student, sent my children to as a parent, and served throughout my entire career. We are not
only the largest system in the country by far, but also the most extraordinary, thanks to the remarkable diversity
and dedication of our students, families, and educators. I see that especially now, families across the city are
doing all they can to keep communities safe from Omicron.

From day one, we shared the important goal of fully opening our school buildings in September to all students.
That long-awaited homecoming welcomed students back with new support systems to address their social and
emotional needs, a curriculum that reflects their lived experiences, and technology that builds on the lessons we
learned during the pandemic.

As we head into the holiday season and I transition out of my role at the end of this year, I want to thank you for
doing so much to make our homecoming and the first months of this school year safe and successful for
everyone in our schools. This continues to be an extraordinarily challenging time, but your partnership has
enabled our students to thrive as they returned to the community of the classroom, where they learn best. I could
not be more proud or grateful for what we have accomplished together.

I am heartened that my former colleague and friend David Banks will be carrying the torch from me as your
new Chancellor, and know that he will further build on the progress we made for our students.
On my final tour of schools last week, a student said to me, “Thank you for helping me out as a young Black
girl. You set a great example of success as the first Black woman Chancellor, and that gives me more hope than
ever before.” I will always remember the people I met in this role, from that young woman to our incredible
educators and our steadfast support staff who make New York City public schools possible.
I am proud of what we accomplished together for our students and I am hopeful that children like that young
woman are empowered to follow in our footsteps and find success in chasing their dreams.

Happy Holidays and much gratitude to you all!

In partnership,
Meisha Porter
New York City Schools Chancellor

SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a "text message". Most cell phones support this type
of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting.

This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers.
If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.

cancel. Mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. See schoolmessenger.com/txt for more info.
