Welcome to Hispanic Heritage Month
This week at P.S. 896 we kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month with an exploration into Mexico. Students learned about the geography of Mexico, Mexican cuisine and Frida Kahlo. During Project Based Learning, students formed groups for their first projects of the year, such as assembling recipes for a cookbook and designing ideas for pottery.
2nd and 3rd grades are a very important time of your child’s development, and this year we will seek to encourage their independence and their sense of responsibility. At home, you can support this by encouraging your child to independently complete their homework, and encouraging them to read for at least 30 minutes each night.
At school, we will study reading, writing, math, science, and will frequently engage in projects that will allow students to explore the world around them. We will also have PE and art each week, so please make sure that your child is dressed in comfortable clothing that can get dirty, and shoes that they can run in.
