Principal Anna Dimilta and Councilman Paul Vallone cut the ribbon on June 1.

Students at a Whitestone school have a fresh space to learn and play.

The auditorium at P.S. 184, which educates students in pre-K through fifth grade, now features new flooring, fresh paint, refurbished seating and a brand-new lighting and sound system thanks to funding allocated by Councilman Paul Vallone and the School Construction Authority (SCA). The fresh space, which is now handicap accessible, was celebrated at an official ribbon cutting on June 1, where third- and fourth-grade students put on a dance performance for the school community.

Principal Anna Dimilta said the space is used by students and teachers for a variety of activities, including modern and ballroom dance programs and after-school drama and theater programs in partnership with Flushing Town Hall. The space is also used for school assemblies, Parent-Teacher Association meetings and indoor recess time.

Dimilta said the refurbished space and technology upgrades will eventually foster more frequent and higher-quality productions at the school, located at 163rd Street and 21st Road.

“P.S. 184Q focuses on providing authentic engaging activities connected to rigorous academic standards that are essential in today’s world,” the principal said. “This upgrade will give us a venue for future performances that showcase the talents of our staff and students.”

Vallone also presented apple pins to the student government president, vice president and student representative at the ribbon cutting.
