Mental Health Expert Follow-up

Follow Up on Our General PA Meeting with Mental Health Experts

Thanks to all who were able to join us Tuesday night at our General PA Meeting on October 19. And a very special thank you to our guest speakers--LaG parents and mental health experts--Jennifer Abcug (LCSW) and Sherry Stuart (LCSW).

Sherry and Jennifer shared some useful tips on how to talk to teenagers, assess their mental well being and suggested a few websites for further support.


This is the beginning of a long-term discussion that we hope to develop over the school year: How to Support Our Teenagers' Mental Health and How We Can Support Each Other.


We appreciate all who shared their questions, thoughts and personal concerns with us. Please continue to do so by emailing us topics you'd like us to address--such as coping tips for panic/anxiety attacks, where to get support at school during the day--and we'll plan to address these at future PA meetings.


To send your questions or comments, please write to:


We look forward to hearing from you!

Tonight's PA Meeting and Elections!


Due to technical difficulties, tonights meetings are postponed.

A new date will be announced shortly.



Dear LaGuardia Families:


We hope your children had a wonderful first day back at school. Now it's your turn to be welcomed back into the building! Please join us in the Little Flower Theater (or on Zoom by clicking here to pre-register) for our first General PA Meeting TONIGHT at 6 PM. Studios will hold their meetings at 7 PM: Art in 7th floor cafeteria; Dance in the Little Flower Theater; Drama in rooms G 25 & G17; Music in room 457 and Theater Tech (location will be announced at the General Meeting).


Our first agenda item is the election of officers to the PA Executive Board and a Freshman Representative to the School Leadership Team (please scroll down for information about the positions).


For our guests attending in person, please follow these steps:

  • Complete the daily health screening form and have it readily available to show before entering the building
  • Bring proof of vaccination
  • A valid ID
  • Your child's OSIS number (you can find this on either a report card or by clicking on or and logging into your account)
  • Wear a mask
  • Please try to arrive by 5:30 PM so we can ensure the validation process moves quickly and the meeting can begin promptly at 6 PM.


For those who plan to attend remotely, the meeting will be live-streamed (at the mercy of the school's wifi capabilities), so you will not be able to participate in the election due to DOE guidelines.


You can find the agenda for the meeting here. The PA's budget can be viewed here.

We look forward to seeing you--and let's see some hands raised to self-nominate for a position!

Welcome Back!

September 12, 2021


Dear LaGuardia Families: 


We are looking forward to welcoming all of our children back to school on Monday, September 13, with an extra special greeting (there is a little surprise awaiting them when they arrive and a sweet treat at the end of the day...sshhh)!


Due to the COVID variant restrictions and other safety concerns and the DOE/school administration protocols this will be a simple and fun way to welcome the kids in the morning and in the afternoon (wrap by 5 PM). Rest assured your child/children will feel welcomed and surrounded by a school community that deeply cares about them. 


Thanks to ALL our PA volunteers who have helped to make this first day “back to school” possible on top of getting their child/children ready for the new academic year.
