Respect For All Parent Workshop

Is it Rude? Is it Mean? Is it Bullying?

On  December 5, 2017 Ms. Macdonald, our Guidance Counselor, gave a workshop for parents on this important and timely subject.

If you were not able to attend the workshop, you can view the presentation HERE

Safety Drills

PS 166 conducts safety drills regularly. First, teachers give lessons on actions to take in an emergency. Then the school periodically conducts practice drills. If you would like to discuss the drills with your child, please click HERE to see the student lessons about safety drills. 

RULER Program

 

NEW FAMILIES: Join us for a RULER Workshop on Monday, October 30 at 8:30 AM. This workshop is aimed at parents who are new to the RULER program but all parents are welcome. If you were unable to attend any of  last year’s RULER workshops or would just like a refresher, please come!
RULER GRAPHIC

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 support the RULER program at home, visit our RULER page for resources.
