EVENTS

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

              This is a reminder that tomorrow Friday, May 22nd is a non attendance day for students.

         In May, students took the New York City Performance Assessments in ELA, Social Studies and Grades 6 and 7 Science.   The New York City Performance Assessments are utilized as a measure of student learning.   All exams will need to be scored in-house and completed by June 5th.    

     Due to the testing and the grading that will need to occur, the school has applied for and was granted a day of non-attendance for students on Friday, May 22, 2015.  

A detailed letter went home last week.
