    The Outreach Social Workers at James M. Quinn Elementary School are available to help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and future readiness, ensuring today's students become productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Referrals for outreach support services may be made by parents, teachers and school administration.  Parents, if you feel your child could benefit from meeting with an outreach worker at school, please contact one of us or a school administrator to make a referral for your child.
