The P.S. 236 OST program provides a safe and nurturing environment. In addition to academic support we offer students a variety of activities in such disciplines as Science, Sign Language, Creative Writing & Drama. Every day, students are engaged in hands-on science experiments, literacy activities that encourage self-expression and/or recreational activities that promote teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Each year the students participate in two stage productions. Currently they are working hard on the 2013/2014 year end production of “The Wizard of Oz”. They
are rehearsing songs and dances, as well as gearing up for their Broadway debut. In our Sign Language class the students are contributing to the production by perfecting the signing of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” which will be included in the show.

Sports – Individual and team sports are played. The team sports are to encourage team sportsmanship. Football, basketball, soccer, tennis, steal the bacon, relay races are all activities played. Our basketball team – The Millennium Warriors are hard at work preparing for their first basketball game versus another OST program.

We also have curriculum based programming:
Sketching – Participants will enjoy this art form by learning to draw things with step by step instruction. Each participant will create their own sketch book and work up to creating their own comics (individually or in a group).

Wacky Science – Participants are given the opportunity to learn the scientific method by getting hands on experience with exploring scientific topics. They will learn to make educated guesses and draw conclusions from their experiments.

Health – Students will learn the importance of being healthy through eating habits and being active.

Law– Students are learning many aspects of the Law. They are learning from the Constitution to the Bill of Rights and Civil and Criminal Law. Students participate in Mock Trials where they will learn how the courts will resolve problems in civil cases and how a person who has been charged with a crime goes through the stages of a trial.

All Around the World – Participants will venture to different countries around the world and learn about different cultures. They will receive a stamp in their passport for each place visited.

Foreign Language – Participants will be introduced to a foreign language (we currently have Spanish and Italian). They will learn the basics such as the alphabet, greetings ans songs. Participants will learn to play games in the foreign language.
