Summer Rising

  

Enrollment for students in grades K–8 Summer Rising 2023 will be open to families from April 17May 1. Any student who is currently in grades K–8 is eligible to enroll. Please visit https://www.schools.nyc.gov/enrollment/summer to apply, beginning April 17, 2023.

HOW TO APPLY

Unlike last year, this process is not first-come, first-served. Families can apply at any point within the application window (April 17–May 1). Approximately one week after the final application deadline, families will receive an email confirming their placement in a Summer Rising program, pending seat availability.

Families can list up to 12 program options in their application, and should rank as many programs as possible to increase the likelihood of being placed in a program of their choice. They can choose any program or summer location option presented in the application portal.

If you have questions or need support with the application, please contact Mrs. Sayers, our parent coordinator or email summer@schools.nyc.gov.

We will be open for Summer Rising here at P.S.160 this summer.

Together for Justice

Our schools are committed to being safe, welcoming, culturally responsive communities that support the social-emotional health of our students. Bigotry, bias, and bullying have no place. This means we must address violence and racism in our society, and help create discussion and dialogue about how it has impacted people in the past and continues to do so in the present. The following link  to the NYC DOE webpage offers resources for families to have those discussions, as assembled by experts at DOE. It also provides connections to mental health support—since these are difficult issues for all of us to experience and grapple with.   social justice

Spray Bottle Art: Nature Print

Materials:
  • flat nature objects (leaves, petals, etc.)
  • pebbles
  • paper
  • small spray bottles
  • liquid watercolors or food coloring
  • aprons
  • plastic trays

Procedure:

  1. First, collect a variety of leaves, grass, and flowers. (You will discover that flatter objects leave clearer prints.) Then lay them out in designs on the papers, weighting the objects down with small pebbles.
  2. Using spray bottles filled with food color, gently spray the paper. The key is not to drench the paper with paint!
  3. After the papers dry, remove the objects, revealing a beautiful nature print.
