At P.S. 207 COMPASS we realize that ” it takes a village to raise a child”. As part of that village (community) that has daily contact with children, we strive to make a positive and lasting impact on each child. Each day with a nutritious, hot snack. After that, the
participants are split into groups by grade level and given a full hour to
complete their homework, with the counselors standing by to help them
should they need it. Each day, after eating and doing homework, each group
takes part in two enrichment activities. The activities vary every day and
include things such as organized sports, leadership development, science,
junior achievement, Kids’ Lit., Fun with Numbers, Russian/Foreign Language,
and Healthy Living. In addition, the program is runs for the full day on
select days that school is not in session. During full day programming the
participants experience a day camp setting and go on various field trips in the
Brooklyn area.
