Council Member Elizabeth Crowley has served the communities of Glendale, Maspeth, Middle Village, Ridgewood, and parts of Woodside and Woodhaven since 2009. Every day she fights for our local families addressing quality of life in the neighborhoods with a strong focus on improving our local schools.
Since taking office Council Member Crowley has led the fight to construct four new schools which helped relieve overcrowding, and has worked to expand after-school and summer programs.
At P.S. 88, Council Member Crowley has allocated funding for more computers in classrooms, smart boards, audio visual equipment and funded a renovation of the auditorium. This year Council Member Crowley brought the Cultural After-School Adventure Program in conjunction with Queens College. Participating kindergarten students were exposed to Indonesian music in a class the first of its kind. In past years, the Council Member participated in P.S. 88’s Arbor Day celebrations and planted trees, organized a Health Fair in which staff received cold and flu shots and also a Job Fair for the community. Additionally, Elizabeth recently brought Arab American Family Services Center representatives to P.S. 88’s Parent-Teacher Conference to avail support services to the immigrant community.
“It is so important our children receive a quality education that can propel them to success. Principal Quintana and the P.S. 88 staff truly have students’ best interests at heart and I am proud to support the school’s mission. Opening young minds to different subjects, cultures, history and more is invaluable as they grow and move forward in their education.”
