PS 60 SCHOOL S POTLIGHT The Woodhaven School
RACE TO READ
PS 60’s science team was proud to display their students’ projects at the school’s science fair. Many parents and family members attended the fair to support the students’ success. Councilman Eric Ulrich, center, was the guest judge who carefully selected the overall winners in grades 3, 4 and 5. He spent time with each student to have a discussion about the details of his/her project. The winners were presented with trophies to acknowledge their outstanding work. Race to Read is an annual school-wide event at PS 60, the Woodhaven School. This year’s theme was “PS 60 Takes Manhattan.” The students were enthusiastic about reading daily in order to further their class’ reading race car in the competition. Students were eager to track their class’ progress on their journey through Manhattan on a bulletin board displayed in the school’s main hallway. Ms. Carrion and Ms. Beckmann’s classes read their way to victory at the close of the six-week competition. Ms. Pisciotti, the assistant principal, was proud to present trophies to the top reader in each grade. This event was graciously supported by Subway, Applebee’s, and McDonald’s.
Art is in bloom at PS 60! Ms. Graf and Ms. Torre, the school’s talented art teachers, decorated every hallway with the beautiful artwork created by all of the students. The students were inspired to be creative and express themselves using the many artistic styles they have studied.
