Principal’s Message 

Dear P.S. 253Q Families,

 As we approach the conclusion of a school year like no other, I must reflect upon what has become a transformational experience for our students, staff and parents alike.  We have had numerous school-based closures, classroom closures and unfortunately loss of loved ones.  But we have persevered and triumphed through!  Our community will continue to fully support each of you and our students, social-emotionally and academically, on our journey forward.  I thank you for your support, patience and trust as we literally experienced the days, moment by moment. 

During this month, we are looking forward to engaging students in our end of year celebrations.  We are excited to recognize the accomplishments of our students and staff. Please be on the lookout for calendar events for your child’s grade.

Additionally, we will continue to emphasize our Leader in Me Habits.  This month we celebrate Habit 7, Sharpen the Saw. This habit calls your attention to preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have–YOU. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life. To build collective awareness and support students’ understanding, you are encouraged to review Habit 7 at home with your family. Here is a video that can help: 7 Habits Song - Sharpen the Saw 7 Habits Song - Sharpen The Saw (Habit 7 Song)

Knowing that the last 18 months has greatly impacted our students’ academic journey, we encourage you to register for the NYC DOE Summer Rising initiative , which is open to all students. Our school will remain open to accommodate all students. 

Now, as we briefly part ways for the summer months, I encourage you to visit our website periodically for updates, make reading a standard daily experience and be sure to Dreambox (students still have access!)

Remember, we will KEEP RISING this month and all the other months to come... Our climb is steady!

Stay safe & Champion On,       

Phoebe Grant-Robinson, Principal

What is your GPS?

In math, I like to use the four square organizer to help me solve a problem. It helps to break down the steps in a problem. I use it most when I work on exemplars where I have to solve multiplication word problems. Try it!

Mensaje del director

Estimado P.S. Familias 253Q,

 A medida que nos acercamos a la conclusión de un año escolar como ningún otro, debo reflexionar sobre lo que se ha convertido en una experiencia transformadora para nuestros estudiantes, personal y padres por igual. Hemos tenido numerosos cierres escolares, cierres de aulas y, lamentablemente, pérdida de seres queridos. ¡Pero hemos perseverado y triunfado! Nuestra comunidad continuará apoyando completamente a cada uno de ustedes y a nuestros estudiantes, social, emocional y académicamente, en nuestro viaje hacia adelante. Les agradezco su apoyo, paciencia y confianza mientras literalmente vivimos los días, momento a momento.

Durante este mes, esperamos involucrar a los estudiantes en nuestras celebraciones de fin de año. Estamos emocionados de reconocer los logros de nuestros estudiantes y personal. Esté atento a los eventos del calendario para el grado de su hijo.

Además, continuaremos enfatizando nuestros hábitos de Líder en mí. Este mes celebramos el séptimo hábito, afilar la sierra. Este hábito llama su atención para preservar y mejorar el activo más grande que tiene: USTED. Significa tener un programa equilibrado para la autorrenovación en las cuatro áreas de su vida. Para crear conciencia colectiva y apoyar la comprensión de los estudiantes, se le anima a revisar el Hábito 7 en casa con su familia. Aquí hay un video que puede ayudar: Canción de los 7 hábitos - Afilar la sierra Canción de los 7 hábitos - Afilar la sierra (Canción del hábito 7)

Sabiendo que los últimos 18 meses han tenido un gran impacto en la trayectoria académica de nuestros estudiantes, lo alentamos a que se registre en la iniciativa NYC DOE Summer Rising, que está abierta a todos los estudiantes. Nuestra escuela permanecerá abierta para acomodar a todos los estudiantes.

Ahora, mientras nos separamos brevemente para los meses de verano, lo animo a que visite nuestro sitio web periódicamente para obtener actualizaciones, haga de la lectura una experiencia diaria estándar y asegúrese de Dreambox (¡los estudiantes aún tienen acceso!)

Recuerde, SEGUIREMOS ASCENDIENDO este mes y todos los demás meses por venir ... ¡Nuestra subida es constante!

Mantenerse a salvo & Campeón en,

Phoebe Grant-Robinson, Directora

¿Cuál es su GPS?

 

En matemática, me gusta usar el organizador de cuatro para ayudarme a resolver un problema. Me ayuda a dividir los pasos de un problema. Lo uso mas cuando trabajo en ejemplos en los que tengo que resolver problemas verbales de multiplicación. ¡Intentalo!

Social Emotional Balance - Mood Meter

What is the Mood Meter?

The Mood Meter is a tool used to recognize and understand our own and other peoples' emotions. It's divided into four color quadrants - red, blue, green, and yellow - each representing a different set of feelings. Feelings are grouped together on the mood meter based on their pleasantness and energy level.

Some classroom teachers utilize the MOOD meter both in school and through remote learning, to gauge their students readiness.  We believe that especially during these UNIQUE times, it is critical to address the Social Emotional Balance or all P.S. 253Q community members.  We encourage you to utilize the MOOD Meter provided to the right with its corresponding descriptions below:

  

  • Red feelings: High in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., angry, scared, and anxious)
  • Blue feelings: Low in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., sad, disappointed, and lonely)
  • Green feelings: Low in energy and more pleasant (e.g., calm, tranquil, and relaxed) 
  • Yellow feelings: High in energy and  more pleasant (e.g., happy, excited, and curious)
