Student Life at P596X
Adaptive Physical Education (APE)
Our Physical Education Department has been doing many exciting things with our students. Throughout the year we have done many different units from volleyball to floor hockey with modified foam sticks. Some of the many activites that our students participate in throughout the year include:
Computers & Technology
Technology at P576X consists of iPads, iPad Minis, iMac (desktop) computers, Lenovo and Dell (desktop) computers, MacBook (laptops) and Smart Boards. Every classroom has a minimum of 2 devices, and many have 3 or more.
In computer classes, students learn how to access the internet safely; they use programs or apps (applications) that reinforce what they are learning in class; they learn to use the internet as a research library.
The students are familiar with and use a wide variety of apps and websites, many of which are available at home as well as in school.
The music department at P596X provides many varied opportunities. Our students learn both instrumental and vocal music. The students learn to play very basic instruments and perform on stage from a very early age.
In the music classroom, songs with simple words and repetitive phrases are used to assist the language development of the students. Meaningful word phrases and songs presented with visual and tactile cues help to facilitate this process.
