This workshop will help parents recognize the difference between moodiness and mood disorders, and provide tools for making room for kids' big feelings while regulating our own adult emotions in the process.
This fall, Olders students began an in-depth study of the presidential election process. While learning the history and evolution of how the Executive Branch was established, students are currently running their own simulated campaigns. Using Storypath (an instructional strategy for teaching), the Teaching Tolerance curriculum, as well as additional resources, the Olders Cluster emphasizes civil discourse in their course of study.
PS1 alumni in grades 9-12 returned to PS1 (virtually) to share their experience with parents and students regarding the middle school application process, navigating the social aspect of school, grades, sports, friendships, relationships with teachers, and how one can get to know a school in pandemic times. Each of them demonstrated confidence and self-awareness.

- How much video time is too much?
- Are social skills at risk?
- How do you ensure safety on the internet?
- How can a child focus with so many distractions?

Olders students explored the scientific method by investigating if butter makes a better cake! Students broke into groups and baked cakes with butter, oil, and margarine. The students concluded butter does make a better cake. This was a VERY fun activity!
Ever wonder about the results of a PS1 education? The best example all year occurs at Life After PS1 when we get to showcase our empowered 9-12 grade alumni as they return to describe how PS1 helped set the foundation for later life.
Youngers students are thinking about the year ahead and sharing their Hopes and Dreams. Students shared their desires to grow their brains as readers, authors, artists, gamers, and mathematicians. There was a consensus among the students that they can't wait to play together at PS1!
