Dear 177Q Community, 

I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to each and every member of our PS 177Q community. As the proud principal of this exceptional District 75 school in the heart of New York City, I am honored to share with you the core of our mission and vision: "WE DO CARE." At PS 177Q, our commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all students is at the forefront of everything we do. "WE DO CARE" encapsulates our dedication to the well-being, growth, and success of each student who walks through our doors. Our belief is that when care is at the center of education, true and lasting learning can take place. Our vision extends beyond the classroom to ensure post-secondary success for all our students. We understand that each individual is unique, and we celebrate the diversity that enriches our school community. Through a combination of personalized attention, innovative teaching methods, and a high standard of instructional rigor, we strive to empower our students with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in their post-secondary endeavors. The Panther, our proud mascot, embodies the spirit of resilience, strength, and unity. Like the Panther, our students face challenges with determination, and we, as a school community, stand alongside them as a source of support and encouragement. In addition to academic excellence, we take great pride in delivering a warm cultural environment. Our school is a place where diversity is not only embraced but celebrated. We believe that by fostering a sense of belonging, we create an atmosphere where everyone can flourish. As we embark on this academic journey together, I invite each of you to be an active participant in our school community. Engage in the educational process, collaborate with our dedicated teachers, and join us in celebrating the achievements of our remarkable students. Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your child. Together, we will continue to make PS 177Q a place where every student is not only academically successful but also feels valued, supported, and prepared for a bright future. 

Warm regards, 

Christopher Duffy, Principal
