UAU Compass Program

Hello P.S. 56 parents!

Please read below carefully, as spots for COMPASS Afterschool School Year 2018/2019 are limited. This enrollment is ONLY for grades 1-5, Kindergarten enrollment will be done at a later date.

Starting tomorrow, July 19, 2018 at 6:00 PM please email COMPASS56@YAHOO.COM with your child’s/children’s NAME & GRADE. Grade is whatever grade they will be beginning come September 2018. Enrollment begins at 6:00 P.M. Please be advised that any emails prior to 6:00 P.M will not be counted.

EVERYONE will receive an automated response. This does NOT mean your child has been selected for COMPASS Afterschool.

If your child IS selected, you will receive a second email with further details regarding orientation and enrollment in 1-2 weeks.

This email account will remain open and act as a waitlist for COMPASS. If your child is not selected within the first slots, they will automatically be on the waitlist if anyone withdraws from the program.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

PS 56 Focus

If we continue to develop success criteria, formative assessment, better lesson plans aligned to CCLS containing student activities focused on specific teaching points and appropriate student self-reflection strategies, then our students will have better opportunities to be independent, self-assessing learners who can lead meaningful conferences regarding where they are along the learning continuum, where they need to go and how they may get there.

 This year, as a means to this end, we are working collaboratively with each other and our District to unpack Common Core Learning Standards, tease out the important components to emphasize, identify specific learning intentions with specific success criteria and specific active student engagement activities to develop Self-assessing learners.
