Midori and Friends
PS 748 has collaborated with Midori and Friends for the past 10 years with the goal to bring music education, appreciation and access to live performances to all of our students. Programs designed for both during the school day and after-school include instrument instruction such as the ukulele and percussion, a songwriters residency, and performances by the Kaoru and Watanabe Taiku Center and the Villa Lobos Brothers have provided opportunities for our school community to interact, learn and enjoy music from around the world.
Students in grades three to five are invited to take part in a lunchtime Mathematics challenge. Each week students meet to engage in friendly challenges that instill a love and appreciation of Math, along with introducing them to challenging concepts, use their problem solving skills and practice perseverance to solve multi step problems. Certificates, trophies and pins are awarded to students at the end of the year to celebrate their time and commitment to Mathematics.
Students who have a natural curiosity in Science are given the opportunity to engage in STEAM tasks and activities that advance student thinking and encourage exploration, designing, building and problem solving with real world issues. Students meet during lunch and join District 20 in a friendly competition and celebration at their Science Olympiad and STEAM Expo events.
PS 748 students truly love the Spelling Bee. Beginning in their classrooms, students engage in rounds of spelling that will eventually designate a winner for their individual class. From there, grade level winners in third, fourth and fifth grade will participate in a school-wide Spelling Bee in front of their families and peers. Our first and second place winners will go on to the District 20 Spelling Bee with the hopes of competing on the citywide, state and national levels.
Our 5th Grade students are encouraged each year to apply for a position on our student government. After they write and deliver a speech to a panel of teachers explaining their leadership abilities, candidates are selected to run for either President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Aligned with Election Day, students learn how the election process works as candidates campaign, debate and run for office. Their peers participate in the voting process and select the student officers who they feel will best represent the school community. Voice matters and PS 748 students exercise their right to vote!
Fifth Grade Candidates that have not been voted into office are invited to join the Kindness Committee. This committee works hand in hand with our Student Government to plan school-wide events and participate in fundraisers for the good of the community. Through their Snack Shack Sales, the Kindness Committee has raised thousands of dollars for Relay for Life. In addition, they plan food drives for local shelters, collect household items for organizations such as Grandma’s Love and Wounded Warriors and spread kindness to our student body through kindness cards and spirit days throughout the year.
We are proud to partner with the Arthur Miller Foundation, bringing a Theater Residency Program to our school. Students learn to develop an appreciation for theater through building competency of ensemble performance and collaboration through story-telling and musical theater. Together with our Theater teacher, a teaching fellow from the Foundation assists students during class as they prepare for a culminating performance.
Through a federally funded program, PS 748 provides students in Grades 1-5 with a 4-day after-school experience that includes homework help and opportunity to practice healthy habits. After students complete their homework, they take part in collaborative activities with their peers in activities such as art, theater and production, games and sports.
