Programs Available at PS 139Q

Hour of Code

Hour of Code is celebrated around the globe every December for one week. PS139Q celebrates this event by doing special coding projects during the students' Technology classes. We also hold parent workshops and student live demonstrations during this week. Students lead demonstrations and tutorials for guests and parents showcase just how savvy they are in programming projects such as Scratch and CoSpaces.  Stickers and posters help this event become a true reason to celebrate!  

International Festival

The International Festival is an annual PS 139 event that highlights the multicultural uniqueness of our school and students. Students sing, dance and play instrumental music in their culture. 

Jump/Jog-a-thon

The Jump/Jog-a-thon is an annual Wellness event at PS 139. Every June, students in grades K through 3 jog, jump and skip around the lap lanes of our upper yard. Students in grades 4 and 5 jump rope. The students have a fun day exercising and  raise donations for our school. Parents are invited to cheer on their children and this adds to the fun.
