We wish all of our Quinn families a very happy holiday season.  We know ​some families experience financial hardships that make providing "extras" for their children, particularly around the holiday season, extremely difficult.  If your family is in need of assistance this holiday season, please contact one of the outreach workers at Quinn Elementary.  All information will be kept confidential.

 

 
Second Step is the social- emotional learning program used school wide.  Students in grades K–5 at Quinn Elementary School meet with an outreach social worker and their classroom teacher on a weekly basis to continue developing their social-emotional skills—including making friends, managing emotions, and solving problems—to set them on the path for social success and academic readiness.
