Dear Parents and Guardians

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Parent Coordinator at PS97Q, The Forest Park School.  My name is Naresha Ali and I am from this wonderful community we all call our home. Whether you are returning or a new family to our community, welcome to a new school year 2023 – 2024.

Here at PS97Q, we have a very supportive staff who work under the direction of Mr. Aggoub, our Principal, Mrs. Kalogridis, Assistant Principal and Mrs. O’Connor, Assistant Principal. We offer so many opportunities for you and your family to become involved in your child’s elementary school education. I will do my best to keep you aware of events and activities in our school community and our neighborhood.

As a Parent Coordinator, my main goal is to increase family engagement within our school and our community as a whole. I am here to serve as a liaison to assist each parent/guardian with any concerns or issues that may arise. I understand that elementary school is an important stage in a child’s life, and that it is one that is filled with questions and concerns. I am here to help and give you the support, information and resources so that you can understand your child’s educational process and help your child reach their academic, physical and social goals.

Family engagement is crucial for a child’s academic success from Pre-Kindergarten through the 12th grade. Here at PS97Q, we are committed to creating a welcoming environment and to encouraging our families to become active participants in their child’s academic journey. By collaborating with your child’s school community, you will be establishing a pathway for clear and consistent communication with our school and yourself. An increased level of communication will result in improved academic success for your child.

Please visit our school website for important updates at and download the application eChalk Notify on your mobile phone for instant updates. Families are welcome to email me with any questions or concerns at or call at 718 849 4870 Ext.1022. Also, I am including a link below to a google form that includes personal contact information for you to fill out, so that you can receive updated information from me daily. Also, this will help us to have an open line of communication with each other.  Parent Personal Information Google Form

I look forward to working with you in the best interest of your child.
