Graduation? Prom?

Hey Seniors,

I know this is a time of uncertainty for all of you. You have asked me: Will there be a graduation? Will there be a prom? Will there be regents? Will we go back to school? Unfortunately, we don’t know the answers to these questions. Be assured you are not alone and seniors all over the world are dealing with the same thing. Please be focused on your remote learning school work and we will figure out the rest together. LESP cares about you! Keep in touch with the senior class by joining our Senior Zoom session at 11am every Thursday.

We will be ok!

7PM Cheer!

Have you heard yelling and screaming out your window this weekend? Every night at 7:00pm, New Yorkers across the city are cheering out their window to honor First Responders and other heroes helping us through the COVID-19 pandemic. The reason 7:00pm was chosen is because that is shift change time at many hospitals, so more workers have a chance to hear our cheers of support. Open your window this week at 7pm tonight and give it a try! Even if you don't hear anything, yell out a cheer of support to those helping us at this time! Video your #7pmsalute and tag @lesplibrary or @lespstudentgov on Instagram so we can see them!

Last Week: Instagram Selfie Challenge! We miss you!

This Week: Instagram Video Challenge! We'd love to see you!

📝SAT Corner📝

  • March SAT School Day Scores have been released. You need a College Board Account to see your scores. Go here to see how to create an account.
  • May SAT Exams are cancelled.
  • June SAT Exam is still offered (this may change).

If you want to register for another SAT, please meet with a college advisor to register! We want to make sure you are getting the fee waiver, which gives you two exams for free.
