The power of words. That’s the theme of an innovative afterschool program taking place at Phoenicia Elementary School this year. The initiative, the Healthy Kids Extended Day Program, is a New York 21st Century Grant recipient for 2017/2018. “The State funding is allowing this wonderful program to be offered free of charge to children who, in the view of their teachers and parents or guardians, would benefit from extra academic enrichment activities and instructional help,” says Phoenicia Principal Linda Sella.

Continents in a Box started from an idea that third graders should not just read and write about the 7 continents of the world, but, should also be able to touch, feel and experience real objects that come from lands far far from their own. With a grant from the Lilly Sarah Grace foundation and funding from the PTA this program was established. Select link for an amazing video overview of this program.
During the summer of 2014, The Board of Education approved the Social Thinking Curriculum, developed by Michelle Garcia Winner and associates, to address the social/emotional needs of our student community. Through the combined efforts of the Social Workers, School Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists and School Counselor this curriculum has been introduced to our students in both the Primary and Intermediate Schools.
