P.S. 160 Q.
NYC DOE District 28
New York, NY
“A Place Para Ti will support P.S. 160’s population of English language learners by introducing and developing the social and relationship skills that they will need as they acclimate within a new environment. A.P.P.T creates a safe social, academic and emotional space for approximately 70 students. We will develop and mold partnerships with our most important stakeholders: parents and community members. We will develop a shared language that will become the foundation of P.S. 160 and empower our students to become responsible citizens as we strengthen skills which transfer both inside and outside of the school community.”
