Enrichment clubs are a cornerstone of the vibrant educational environment at PS 889. These clubs, facilitated by dedicated parents and teachers, serve as invaluable extensions of classroom learning, offering students the chance to explore diverse interests and develop new skills outside of their regular curriculum. Held once per week, they provide a dynamic platform where students can delve deeper into subjects that captivate their curiosity, fostering a love for lifelong learning.

Enrichment clubs change over time based on who is leading them. We have organizations come in and offer experiences such as ballet or violin residencies. And we encourage all parents to come forward to their child's teacher with ideas they have to share their interests, hobbies, or professional knowledge and skills to the classroom.

The following is a collection of some the recent enrichment clubs that have been a part of our students' experience at PS 889.

Stop-Motion Animation

Students worked in small groups to create the animated scenes included in this film. Throughout the residency, students worked with animation software, utilized laptop computers and webcams, and were introduced to a variety of animation techniques.

4th grade students created this stop motion animation based on the Aesop's fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare."

5th grade students worked with Puppetry in Practice artists to create this stop motion animation based on the Langston Hughes poem, "The City."

3rd grade students made this stop motion animation based on the Jack Prelutsky poem, "A Pizza the Size of the Sun."
