School Events

summer in city


Summer in the City and Title III summer school students at I.S.228 experienced their first field trip to the Prospect Park Zoo on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. For many of our students, it was their first time visiting a zoo !!!. The excitement and smiles on their faces were awesome.


The extended summer school hours enabled our children to really explore, engage, investigate, and search the various animals at the zoo.  The hands-on experiences made it a memorable and powerful learning experience.

P.S. 253 Students “Adopt a Grandparent”

Student representatives from P.S. 253 recently brought holiday cheer to residents of the Shoreview Nursing Home. The visit was part of a community outreach organized by Parent Coordinator Gina Dacchille and the Student Government Club, under the direction of Robin Gellman, AIS Literacy Teacher.  Titled “Adopt a Grandparent” the project’s goal was to promote empathy and civic responsibility among the students and to provide the opportunity for interaction between the senior citizens and youth from the same community.  Students spent the morning distributing homemade cards and beautiful poinsettia plants for the residents. These were meant to serve as reminders to the seniors that they are cared about and valued members of the community.  In addition, the P.S 253 Arts department entertained with choral and dance selections from their holiday show.  It was a wonderful experience for all participants!
