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.

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

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.
