Just Keep Swimming
Can you believe it? We are almost done with 3rd quarter! You've done a great job so far, but we're not done yet. We need to keep moving forward. Sometimes that's all we can do. As the wise Dory the Fish said, "Just keep swimming." Keep breathing, and keep swimming, and we will get there!
Many of you are wondering what the end of the year is going to look like; so am I! I don't have all the exact details, but I can tell you that I am working with teachers right now (their feedback is due to me on Friday, April, 16), on a few matters that are important to you, such as our middle school and high school awards assemblies/presentations, and final exam week. I promise that as soon as we get it all figured out, and triple checked to make sure we have followed New York State guidance to a T, I will share it with you (and your parents).
In the meantime, keep doing your best. I believe in you!
End of Year Device Turn-In
Summer School and Credit Recovery
Students who are going to benefit from summer school will be receiving phone calls or meeting requests from counselors within the next few weeks. Note: attending summer school does not mean you're doomed; it means you need a little more time. And, as I stated above, it's not too late to recovery! If you need help working on a plan, stop on down to the office or send me an email or a parent square message. YOU CAN DO IT!

Students in grades 9-12 will be taking the Regents Exams listed below, none of which will be calculated as part of a student's average. If a student receives a passing grade in a course that ends in a Regents exam, the student will earn a credit exemption and will receive that exam waiver toward their graduation requirements. Exam waivers for graduation requirements will also be given to students whose final grades in each course that would have ended in a Regents exam is passing.
