PSAT

On Wednesday, October 19, 2016 all ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students will participate in the PSAT. It will be administered in the school building during school hours. Please make sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep on Tuesday and arrives prepared to take the exam. This test is great practice for your child in order to prepare for the SAT itself, which is usually taken during the second half of eleventh grade. Scores will be sent to the school.

 

PARENTAL Engagement

 

Every Tuesday after school we will have 40 minutes dedicated to parental engagement. During that time teachers plan to conduct student lead parent/teacher conferences, parental outreach via email and phone, student academic updates on Pupil Path, and meetings with parents. Feel free to contact the school if you want to make an appointment to schedule a meeting with your child's teachers during that time. The goal is to strengthen the partnership and communication between parents and the school; an essential component of student success.

​​PUPIL PATH


​​Pupil Path is the parent/student version of Skedula, our online grading system, through which students and their parents/guardians can check up on their grades, message teachers, track graduation requirements, etc. All students registered for classes already have Pupil Path accounts, but new students and their parents/guardians will need to set up a username and password in order to log in. A detailed list of Pupil Path’s features will be mailed out next week, along with an individual invitation letter that allows each student and their parent/guardian to set up a username and password. Staff will be available to assist during Curriculum Night (see below).


LUNCH FORMS


Lunch forms have been distributed to all students and families. It is essential that these forms be returned as quickly as possible, in order for us to report accurate numbers to the city. As always, we are offering a pizza party as an incentive to the grade that turns in the highest percentage of their lunch forms!

































































































High Schoolers Unite for Roundabout's Student Production Workshop


Click on the link to access the video: High Schoolers Unite for Roundabout's Student Production Workshop

Roundabout Theatre Company just presented a play by 17-year-old senior Darleny Suriel, titled Colored Lines. The world premiere play for the ninth annual Student Production Workshop, which took place last week at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. BroadwayWorld was there throughout the process and we bring you an exclusive look inside the special event!

The 2015 Student Production Workshop company included: playwright Darleny Suriel (Repertory Company High School), director Maury Mayen (Repertory Company High School), assistant director Khadim Diop (Repertory Company High School), managing director Fernando Mota (Curtis High School), stage manager Kimberly Aragon (Repertory Company High School)and production manager Brittany Bencivenga (Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School).

Education at Roundabout's Student Production Workshop (SPW) is a student-led theatre company modeled after Roundabout's professional theatre production process. Students register at the beginning of the school year, and participate in workshops and attend Roundabout productions throughout the fall and winter. In October, students apply for leadership positions (Artistic Director, Assistant Director, Managing Director, Production Manager, and Stage Manager), and once they are selected, they lead the ensemble through a series of workshops and show visits. To enhance their leadership skills, the student leaders meet with their counterparts at Roundabout throughout the process. They also meet artists from all Roundabout mainstage productions. The participants, who hail from all five boroughs, are offered a safe environment to create art that interests and excites them.

Education at Roundabout uses theatre to enhance teacher practice and deepen student learning in New York City classrooms. Using the professional theatre resources of Roundabout Theatre Company, Education at Roundabout is dedicated to: transform the classrooms of New York City public schools; engage students in theatre experiences that explore the universal themes of the human condition; build a community of confident, expressive young people; foster a new generation of artists and arts administrators; and expand the impact of Roundabout's productions by providing historical, literary and social contexts in the classroom.


MetroCards


Schools distribute student MetroCards to eligible students at the beginning of each semester of the school year. Student MetroCards are distinct from MetroCards used by the general public.

Student MetroCards are:

  • Only for use by the student to whom it was issued and whose name is written on the card.
  • Good for travel to and from school and school-related activities between 5:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m., only on days when the student’s school is in session.
  • Good for three trips each school day. Three trips allows a student to travel to school, from school to an after school activity, and then from that activity to home. A special four-trip student MetroCard is available on request for pupils whose trip to school requires multiple transfers.
  • Good for an entire school semester.


A full fare student MetroCard allows an eligible student to travel to and from school and school-related activities by bus and subway. On most trips, a student can also transfer free between the bus and the subway, between a bus and another bus, or between the subway and a bus. You cannot transfer between M27 and M50; M31 and M57; M96 and M106; Bx40 and Bx42; M1, M2, M3, and M4; Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue buses; M101, M102, and M103; Lexington Avenue and Third Avenue buses; Bx1 and Bx2; and a bus going south on Grand Concourse and one going north.

A half fare student MetroCard allows an eligible student to travel to and from school and school-related activities on buses only and is only valid for three trips per day.
