Reminders for the Week:

  • The simulation of the Computer Based Test (CBT) January 18-19 went very smooth thanks to the strategic coordination of Ms. Eisner! Although there are no published academic results for the students, the main purpose of the simulation test was to identify the technological needs/issue that need to be rectified and to get students comfortable with taking a CBT before the actual New York State CBT ELA exam for Grade 7 in April 2023.
  • Attendance is required to be taken within the first 15 minutes of the start of class. If a student is not in class they must be marked absent so that their parent/guardian are promptly notified.
  • Grade 8 - If a student arrives by 7:45am, please mark them present. Anytime after that time the student is late.
  • Grade 7 - If a student arrives by 8:35am, please mark them present. Anytime after that time the student is late.
    • Teachers are required to ensure all classroom doors, (especially those that are not occupied) and exterior doors (doors leading to the outside) are closed and locked at all times. Leaving unoccupied classroom doors unlocked and exterior doors open poses a safety hazard to students and staff.
    • Teachers are required to stand outside of classrooms during the changing of classes and dismissals to ensure a smooth transition from class to class and dismissal.
    • If you are substitute teacher for the day, in the absences of lesson plans left by the classroom teacher, all students are to log on to iReady and complete a minimum of two reading and one math assignment.
    • Printed lesson plans are to be available near the door (in hanging file holders) or open in a tab on your Promethean boards.
    • Instructional Focus of the Week: Approaches To Learning Skills (ATLS)
    • Unannounced observations conducted by Hempstead High School and District Administration will begin this next week.
    • The Energy Efficient Project at ABGS has resulted in better lighting, more efficient heating and ventilation, upgraded stripping of entry doors, and a host of other energy efficient upgrades!

    Have a Wonderful ABGS Week!

    • The large containers and garbage bins that are taking up parking spaces near the Greenwich Street entrance are there as part of the HUFSD 2022-2023 Energy Efficient Upgrade Project. The bins will remain until the work in the suites, e.g., electrical, heating, plumbing etc., is complete. The work will be performed after school hours. It is anticipated that this part of the project will be finished sometime in February 2023. Please be patient!
