As a way to unite everyone as a P.A.C.K and to show school spirit and pride, we will be celebrating a P.S. 91Q Spirit Week. Originally Spirit Week was scheduled for the week of January 22. Instead, Spirit Week will be held the week of January 29th through February 2nd and will have a different theme for each day.
The theme schedule is as follows:
Monday, January 29th – Crazy Hat, Hair, Headband Day – Wear the craziest concoctions you can think of on your head. A Special kudos will go to anyone who is able to incorporate a husky into the head wear.
Tuesday, January 30th – Crazy Sock Day
– Put on the strangest, most eclectic socks you can find. Mismatch the craziest pair or add things to any socks to make them as funky as you can.
Wednesday, January 31st – “Souper Bowl” Wednesday
– Represent your favorite sports team and wear a jersey, t-shirt or team colors. We are asking students to bring a can of soup for our “Souper Bowl”. All cans collected will be donated to the Sacred Heart Food Pantry in Glendale.
Thursday, February 1st – “Souper Hero” Day
– This is the opportunity to dress like the Super Hero you are! Fictional characters or real life super heroes are all welcome! If you haven’t brought in your soup donation, there is still time to do so today.
Friday, February 2nd - Twin Day/Opposites Day
– Today is a chance to be the same or completely different. Find a friend or better yet, someone that you would like to be friends with and dress like a twin or the complete opposite. Mismatched, backwards or inside out clothes will work too.
Spirit Week is a way to have fun while helping the Glendale community. We thank you in advance for your participation and hope to make this a yearly tradition at P.S. 91.

As the weather begins to change and become colder I wanted to let you know that the students, whenever possible will be going outside for recess in the yard.
I believe that vigorous play is essential for our youth. Please assist us with making sure that our students have the appropriate outside clothing so that all may participate in our recess times. The decision to play outside will be made on a day-to-day basis.
Below are the guidelines sent out by the N.Y.C.D.O.E regarding this issue:
Guidelines for Outdoor Play in Cold Weather:
Some schools continue to keep children inside when the temperature is
below 32 degrees. This is not consistent with current Health Department recommendations or current DOE policy. Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing or there is ice on the playground, low temperatures should not be a barrier to outside play as long as children are appropriately dressed. The Health Department strongly encourages principals to maintain outdoor play periods on the vast majority of winter days.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
