Our Core Values

Responsibility Value  Respect Value  Trust Value

Celebrating Success at QE!

We are proud to have been named in the top 1% of Citywide Elementary Schools for Spring 2019—one of just 6 schools in the city to achieve this distinction! We were named in the top 5% each year for 2015 – 2018, based on MOSL scores and ratings from administrator visits. Thank you to our hardworking staff and students for demonstrating what inquiry and service learning can achieve!

Service Learning

Respect The Rainforest  



November 1, 2021

Dear Families,


Our responsibility to the EARTH is never-ending, so we must continue educating our students on the importance of making a difference. Educating our students through our service learning units makes our students more compassionate, responsible, and opens their hearts up to the world. 

Respect the Rainforest is our first unit this year. 


We will be partnering with the World Conservation Society, a local organization that protects animals and communities around the world. We believe our school can help make a difference! The students will be working on a variety of projects to voice the importance of supporting our local zoos and the NY Aquarium. As a school last year we raised  $3,754.00 for our local zoos and the NY Aquarium. Let’s do it again!!!! 

We need everyone’s help:

We will be selling canvas rainforest bags for a minimum $10.00 donation. If you wish to donate more, the NYC city zoos and Aquarium say thank you in advance. All orders need to be placed online by filling out the google form. Once the form is filled out send the money into school in an envelope labeled with the student's name and grade by 12/1/21. All bags will be delivered before December 23rd. 



Thank you for your unconditional support!

Queens Explorers Staff
