Embrace the past - Live for now - Strive for the future
The summer theme this year for K-8th grade is "Rockin' Around the Clock." Each week, we will explore a different period in history such as The Prehistoric Age, The New Millennium, and The Renaissance Era bringing the academic content to life with fun events, special visitors and student trips!
Our K-8th grade
classroom ratio of 10 students to 1 teacher ensures that your child will learn in a safe environment that encourages growth.
Summer Pre School will
use the learning theme "Summer Splash" to introduce children to concepts such as the properties of water, sea life, bubbles, and ice.
Our program offers special visitors from organizations, such as the Long Island Children's Museum, that come to the school to conduct
hands on activities that complement our theme.
The goal of the morning session at 82nd Street
Academics is for students to be successful in the upcoming school year. We have challenging academic activities that will propel them
to the head of the class! Children work with trained group leaders to practice math and language arts. Lesson plans are based on the
New York State Learning Standards and the Common Core Standards. We give homework every day so students can practice their
newly-learned skills. Monthly progress reports keep you up to date with your child's development. Additionally, this year we have
added laptops for every student in the classroom to be used to enhance each student's learning experience through technological
interactivity. For parents, group leaders are available throughout the summer to discuss your child's learning. Students
participate in inter-class academic competitions that are based on this year's summer theme, "Rockin' Around the Clock."
Students will be taking trips and special visitors will be featured on-site to complement learning. The program ends with a special
ceremony starring your children!
the afternoon, students build on their curiosity to connect and enhance understanding of interactive, project-based themes (which also
happen to be extremely fun!). Children reinforce their understanding of New York State Learning Standards and Common Core
Standards as they participate in hands-on activities centered on our theme "Rockin' Around the Clock" The lessons utilize the same
concepts we teach in our morning classes as well as use laptops to enhance learning several times a week. Reading, writing, logic
and critical thinking skills are incorporated throughout classes in Drama, "Math 4 Life" lab, Health and Physical Education, Science,
and The Arts. Group Leaders keep topics interesting and fresh so that students stay highly motivated!
