The RULER program was developed by the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, where they teach people of all ages how to develop their emotional intelligence to create a more effective and compassionate society.
This year we rolled out the RULER program at PS 166 as our approach to social and emotional learning. Studies show that RULER programming improves academic performance, decreases aggressive behavior, and enhances learning climates.
To learn how you can implement the RULER practices at home, join us for a parent workshop on Tuesday, December 6 during parent engagement time – 2:50 PM in Room 412.

Students have been having a great time in the library learning about picture books and the Caldecott Medal. Try asking your child:
- What do we mean when we talk about the illustrator’s “palette?” (1st & 2nd grade)
- Show me the endpapers of a book. (2nd & 3rd grade)
- What is the “orientation” of the book? (4th & 5th grade)
- Who was Philippe Petit? (4th & 5th grade)
