PS 201 Penguins Basketball
The PS 201 Penguins have been part of the District 25 basketball league for the past 7 years. The basketball team is comprised of 4th and 5th grade students, both boys and girls who elect to try out for our team. Within our league, we schedule games with participating schools and promote teamwork, sportsmanship and above all respect. Through our practices and games, we work together to develop our individual abilities, our mental awareness, our communication skills, teamwork and our dedication to our teammates. We also discuss the importance of leadership with our team, often engaging our 5th grade students to become mentors for our 4th grade students. Through our constant collaboration with one another, we have created a positive atmosphere that not only produces great basketball games, but greater accountability amongst the team members. Each basketball team member understands the importance of their academics and work together.
*Note: Due to temporary safety guidelines, this program is on hold for the 2022-2023 school year.
On Stage provides a team of professional theatre artists who will guide students in a workshop setting, featuring individual and group activities, as they create a fully staged musical theatre production. Students will select a theme, learn the necessary skills in acting, improvisation, writing, vocal, musical and dance disciplines, and help create props and costumes that will lead to a final presentation. The program culminates with an in-school assembly performance day for the rest of the grades, plus a final performance in a beautiful world-class concert hall space at Queens college for the parents, families and invited guests. That final event pairs the students with a professional director, stage manager, lighting designer, sound engineer, and crew to give the students a taste of the professional theatre world.
