News Blast 

Week Of April 19th 

Hello,

Tomorrow we start the final marking period of the year. Huge congratulations to the students who completed PBATs last week. Managing long-term projects is a particular accomplishment in these circumstances. I was also pleased to see how many students met with teachers to make up NX’s from the fall or catch up on missed work from the Spring. Showing up for yourself in this way is also not easy. Entering the last marking period, there is still time to catch up on anything from the fall or earlier this spring. Please communicate with your teachers directly to make a plan. A couple reminders: if you turn in a late assignment, email your teacher to make sure they see it, and then be aware that it will likely take them time to be able to grade it.

 

As we wrap up this year, we are also starting to plan the summer and next year (and for seniors - graduation and end-of-year celebrations. Stay tuned!) There are more unknowns than every, but I want to start sharing our thoughts and getting ideas and feedback. Everyone is invited next Wednesday, April 28, to a parent meeting at 5:30. Non-graduating students, please also fill out the Summer and Career Interest Survey.

Positive COVID Case at Co-located School in Our Building

Unfortunately, someone at Humanities Prep, located on the 3rd floor of our building, tested positive for COVID. Humanities Prep has a different floor and entrance from our school, and is following all protocols. We send good thoughts for their quick recovery and the health and safety of their community.

I have attached the DOE letter that was generated for your information. Feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions.

Want us to connect you with opportunities when we hear about them? Make sure you fill out the Career/ Summer Interest form I describe in more detail below

 

Summer and Career Interest Survey for grades 9, 10 and 11

Now is the time of year that we plan for summer and fall.

 

We want to know your plans and interests for the summer. We are planning summer school and summer enrichment (like trips) ourselves, and can also help connect you to other jobs and opportunities. Sometimes we find out about a job opportunity that requires a fast response, so we want to be ready to connect you if you are interested.

 

We also want to know about electives you would like us to offer this fall.

 

Most students are not sure about what career they want to pursue, or change their minds.  Feel free to skip questions.  You can go back and edit this survey whenever you want.

 

Please fill out the survey here: https://forms.gle/TBPhCvmgSeVXZQbPA
