Academic Enrichment at PS 557


Academic Enrichment at PS 557

School may be out, but learning is most definitively still in! The students of PS 557 are eager to continue learning through the summer and they could use some caring volunteers to help them do it.

Volunteers will provide support as the teachers instruct students through lessons on math and reading.

At Brooklyn Gardens Elementary School, staffers encourage children to investigate and explore. A sense of curiosity and a willingness to ask questions are seen as a plus. The heart of the curriculum is social studies, science and the arts, with a special focus on gardening in a nearby park. Children engage in extended projects in which they plan, discuss, write, read, draw, and build. 100% of students receive free lunch.
