BioBus will arrive at PS 166 in May! 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will be invited to board this 1974 transit bus, outfitted with $100,000 worth of microscopes and staffed by PhD scientists. Each class will spend a session on the bus. This enrichment activity is made possible by donations from parents and fundraising by the Parents Association. www.biobus.org.
The Parents Association is proud to welcome LeAp (Learning through an Expanded Arts Program) to PS 166! Students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade will be able to participate in a program that utilizes a hands-on, arts-based approach to teaching the academic curriculum. Staff from the LeAp program will visit PS 166 four times to help facilitate a book making project. Classes have already started participating in the program, so be sure to ask your kids what they think about the experience! leapnyc.org/
