ANNOUNCEMENTS: Learning ENVIRONMENT Surveys Every year, the DOE, requests that scholars, parents, and faculty complete a learning environment survey, which is then used to help us plan for school improvement efforts. Please complete the survey as soon as possible. https://surveys.panoramaed.com/nycdoe/login College Readiness Boot Camp for Rising Seniors: DUE TO LOW participation rate, we WILL NOT BE OFFERING THIS opportunity. Please reach out to your college and career ready teachers if you want summer tips that will support your college planning.
Kinvolved: We will be using an app to notify parents via text messages, about their scholars’ attendance and participation in the live, classroom sessions. Please be advised that it is ESSENTIAL that ALL students show up to the live sessions that are ONLY twice per week for each class.
COLLEGE APPLICATION SUPPORT for SENIORS: Seniors who have NOT applied to college should contact Mr. Millien (914) 298-0572 or EMillien@schools.nyc.gov to get direct, one- on-one support. In addition, in the Google Classroom, Class of 2021(om7br6t) there is a complete list of resources that will help seniors with applying to college and financial aid. Please be sure you are signed up to this classroom and are getting the support you need. In addition, Seniors have the support of their College Ready teachers, Ms. Madera and Ms. Knight-Hogg and should also be utilizing these resources.
