PS 5 has an after school academic program addressing Reading, Writing and Math. PS 5 students participate in the Book of the Month that integrates Literacy across the curriculum. Kindergarten students are working in Breakthrough to Literacy which integrates Literacy and Technology.
In June of last year P.S.5X was selected to be a part of the OLPC initiative started by
Nicholas Negroponte, as a result each and every child in P.S. 5X has a laptop they can use throughout their day.
Our students also participate in ballroom dancing, and chess competitions.
Our Kindergarten - 2nd graders are part of the cook shop program which exposes them to various foods and healthy eating styles.
