Park Terrace School Activities
Park Terrace offers the following enrichment opportunities for students:
Odyssey of the Mind
Teamwork to develop higher-level thinking and problem-solving. This is a competitive activity with other schools in the tri-county area.
Held in the spring, this event is a major occurrence in the school year. For one night, the school is filled with student demonstrations and scientific concepts.
In June, the school hosts a Field Day to celebrate the end of the school year. Field Day is an opportunity for students to participate in fun activities, games, and competitions with their classmates that offer physical exercise and help children learn team-building skills. The annual event is held outside (weather permitting), and typically features Bounce rides, face painting and other activities that children enjoy.
Each year the Kingsborough School students and staff participate in a Halloween Parade. Kindergarten leads the parade and each level is picked up in turn as we pass through the building. Additional information is available in early October.
Read Across America Day
Read Across America Day is celebrated each year in March and features special guest readers from throughout the school district and the Gloversville community. The day is also referred to as Dr. Seuss Day because it marks the birth date of Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) — author of such beloved children’s books as The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and many others. Read Across America Day offers students and educators alike an opportunity to celebrate books and reading.
