BOOKS OF THE MONTH
PS596X is rolling out an extension to our literacy curriculum. The "Book of the Month" program began in October and each class will feature a selected book. The book ties into our curriculum as well as the social and emotional theme of the month. Our teachers are meeting during common planning periods to unpack each book and design lessons, adaptations, and resources to support the book's topics. Our goal is to build on our students knowledge and understanding of topics thorough vocabulary, writing, experiments and discussions. Parents can help by reinforcing the activities that we complete in school in their own home. Principal John Siracuse will be reading the book of the month during a special pajama read aloud which will be featured on our website and app each month. Below you will find a sample set of information about a book, targeted vocabulary words and some fun activities you can do at home or in the community with your child! More information to come as we roll out each book, each month.
As part of our book of the month program, you are invited to join us for an engaging learning experience with your child. The teachers have been hard at work unpacking and adapting each book so that it meets the need of all our learners. The next monthly read aloud will take place on Monday, January 27 at 10:00am!We would to share some of these strategies with you, so that you can assist your child at home in reading each book. We look forward to seeing you!Place: Each unit will have their own read-aloud!

This page features the P596X Photos of the Week, which showcases events going on each week at our school. New photos are posted weekly. Please check back.
This week's photo features our parent luncheon that took place over the summer. Our PS596X parents were invited to take part in this luncheon to celebrate the achievements of their child during the 2018 - 2019 school year. The parents were treated to lunch and were given a photo of their child to decorate at the luncheon. Parents also had an opportunity to share success stories about their child. "Because You Celebrate Your Child's smallest milestones because they are precious"It’s easy for parents of children with autism to get wrapped up in their child’s challenges and deficits. The systems of special education and disability care are focused on challenges and deficits. It takes a strong parent to manage those concerns and take the time to notice, delight in, and celebrate their child’s abilities and achievements.
