P255q@397 student Brooklyn Garcia and his parents celebrate Autism Awareness Day!
The X12 P255Q Newsletter is a weekly project by our 8:1:1 class at the PS 154 Site. This week, the students interviewed Mr. Richard Marowitz, our retired Principal. Check it out below!
Ms Victoria’s class from 397 excelled in the District 75 Dance Festival on March . Everybody who attended had a fantastic day. Check out their awesome routine!
PS7 Class X01 created and presented their project entitled “The City that Never Sleeps” during the 3rd Annual District 75 Social Studies Fair held at the New York Historical Society. The project was led by the collaboration between Ms. Arminda Crisostomo and Ms. Calianne Botsaris with the help of Ms. Tiffany Bejarano and Ms. Frimy Parola. The students were accompanied by Ms. Mary Ellen Barnes and Ms. Yubis Lopez.
In this project, the students learned how NYC evolved over time by comparing and contrasting images of past and present New York City. They also made dioramas to highlight the differences between NYC Then and Now. Students researched information about the buildings and constructed a time line to show the order in which the buildings were built. They also used circuits to light up the Empire State Building. Students used bubble maps, double bubble maps, flow maps and bridge maps to organize the information they had learned about New York City.
As students made their way to the other schools’ exhibits around the five boroughs of New York City using their passports, they explored and learned different Social Studies topics. It was truly a fun and engaging day filled with knowledge and hands-on learning!
During the week of February 11th, students and staff at P255 @ 154 celebrated Respect For All Week with daily activities and themed dress up days. Respect For All is a program that highlights kindness, compassion for others, inclusion of all, respect for diversity, and the prevention of bullying. Check out below to get a glimpse of what our school did each day.
Monday: “Caught Being Kind” All acts of kindness were recognized and celebrated with student’s earning certificates throughout the day
Ms. Nicole awards Bennett for holding the door for his classmates.
Sasha and Ethan are “caught being kind” when they share supplies with each other.
Anthony proudly shows off his certificate that he earned for being kind to a friend.
Tuesday: “Everyone Fits In Here” Students wrote messages or glued symbols of kindness on puzzle pieces which then formed one large puzzle of unity. This puzzle is displayed in the hallway of our unit.
Wednesday: “Everyone Counts” This was a themed dress up day where students and staff wore clothing with a number.
Thursday: “Wear Red” Students and teachers wore red to be unified to show respected and compassion for each other.
Friday: “I am…” Students created a colorful bored displaying distinctive traits and attributes about themselves. This is on display in the hallway.
In addition, 154 participated in National No One Eats Alone day, which is a lunchtime program where students engage with each other or teachers to increase socialization and promote inclusion of all.
P255q @ PS/IS 128 students had a fun-filled Superbowl Party on Friday, February 1st. First, our students participated in a football themed obstacle course in the gym. Then they moved to the ADL room where they made sliders and were given football tattoos (temporary, of course)! After that, the students made football field brownies, complete with pretzel goal posts! It was a fun day for the kids and adults of P255!
We made some touchdowns at P7 this week in honor of Super Bowl 53 on Sunday. Our amazing gym teachers Mr. Chris and Ms. Christina created a giant obstacle course in the gym with different football-related activities. Each class participated in running the course and cheering on a different Super Bowl team. With the help of our awesome PTs and OTs, students pushed, kicked, tossed, and tackled their way to making a touchdown! Of course, our fantastic Speech team was on hand to help us with our refreshments after our wins! Go team!
