Advisory Program (SEL)

"When students feel safe and supported, they are truly ready and able to learn." -Laura Weaver and Mark Wilding

We have created our own unique and special advisory program for P.S. 361 Q students.  Our students meet with their adviser in a small group each Monday to learn more about 5 Core Competencies.  In a student advisory program, each student in the school is assigned a teacher or staff member who assists the student in achieving his or her academic and personal goals.

Advisory offers emotional support for students in two forms:

  • First, it supplies built-in peer groups for all students, including new students.

  • Second, it provides students with an adult who knows them well and who can offer advocacy and support in difficult social and academic situations. 

Here's a Sneak Peek into our Advisory Program schedule:

  • Read Aloud with Accountable Talk

  • Books on Topics around Social-emotional Issues (self-awareness, resolving conflict, maintaining friendship, demonstrating empathy, etc.)

  • Books on Topics around Academic & Personal Behaviors (Persistence, engagement, collaboration, self-regulation, etc.)

  • Extended Group Discussion

  • Goal-setting

  • Conference & Follow-up


 

Academies Program


Academies for 2017-2018 feature Performing Arts, STEM, Cultural Art, Social and Emotional work, Fitness, Health and Nutrition, and Sustainability efforts!

In our, full-day, high-quality P.S. 361 Q Pre-K, teachers are sparking wonder and igniting learning in our students.  Our Pre-K for All program gives our students stronger math and reading skills in elementary school and a better chance at success in life.  Students are in a safe learning environment with opportunities to explore, create, and participate in engaging learning activities and to interact with other children and teaching staff.  Students learn through engaging in centers and through daily opportunities for play.  Language development and social and emotional development are a primary focus for our students.  As an Explore track school, our students also have instruction in mathematics through the use of the Building Blocks curriculum.
