The CHAMPS Sport and Fitness Program is an initiative of the New York City Department of Education that promotes physical activity among children going through the critical years of middle school. The name CHAMPS derives from the initials of the five values that define our participants: Cooperative, Healthy, Active, Motivated, and Positive Students.
Expanded Learning Time (ELT)
ELT focuses on improving academics with programs outside of the normal school day. Some programs include: woodworking, guitar lessons, drone flying, 3D modelling and more.
To help students with differences, we train student leaders to become mediators. These student leaders help others that have conflicts resolve those conflicts.
Safety Patrollers help fellow students cross the street. Safety Patrollers help teachers at special events.
Safety Patrollers earn community service hours while doing an amazing job helping their school community. The application process begins in 7th grade and training is in May.
