P.S./I.S. 268 students participated in the District 29Q first ever history fair sponsored by CDEC 29Q and the District 29 Community Superintendent’s Office . The purpose of the fair was to highlight our community’s culture and to give students the opportunity to define knowledge, investigate data, and develop logical conclusions on the assigned topic.
Congratulations to all of our students who participated and to Eshwar Singh from class 301 for winning the bronze medal for his "Great Wall" project!
K.L.E.W.S. is an acronym used for a strategy that PS/IS 268 has been chosen to pilot in its teaching technique to activate student prior knowledge in scientific inquiry.
K- What a student may already Know
L-What a student may Learn
E-What Evidence a student may find
W-What do our students Wonder about
S-What Science ideas can we use in our explanations

Imagine learning is an individualized computer program that our school offers to English Language learners. It is a language and literacy based program. The program is incredibly appealing to young learners who love music and animation. Through songs, charming characters, and visuals, students deepen their understanding of literacy and language concepts like phonics and grammar. The more students use the program, the more information they generate for teachers to assess and target their areas of strength and weaknesses. Students use the program each day at school, but they must use it at home too! They only need to log on for twenty minutes each night. Our students are eager to log in and have been noted to clock record time in the program. For this reason, we have been selected by Imagine Learning coordinators to be its Beacon school for the Imagine Learning program !
Congratulations to Ms. Singh and Ms. Flores for their part in making our students great imagine learners!!!
