PHOTO OF

THE WEEK

 

Week of August 1, 2022

This week's photos feature class X21 from our 153 site and class X17 from our 178 site. As part of our summer space theme, the students used a total of eight Oreo cookies to visualize the phases of the moon. The students used the contrast of the frosting and cookie to represent light and shadows on the surface of the moon as seen from Earth. The moon fully orbits around Earth about once every month. During its orbit, we can see the moon in different phases. The phases are controlled by the amount of sunlight reflected off the moon that we can see from Earth at any point during its orbit. The students enjoyed taking part in this fun and engaging activities.

WELCOME

Welcome to P.S. 596X! We are a district 75 New York City Public School serving students on the autism spectrum and other special needs from Pre-K through age 11 in three co-located sites: 11X178, 11X153 and 11X498.

 

Through this website, you will be able to step into our classrooms and hallways to get an idea of the wide variety of creative programs and practices in which students participate on a daily basis.

Our commitment is to provide the highest quality, state of the art instructional programs to our students, and to offer parents workshops and activities to equip themselves with the skills to best help their child. Through hands-on learning and fun-filled opportunities, our students make tremendous gains in social skills, language, and academics.

John Siracuse, Principal
