Foreign Language Week: Governor Cuomo has declared this week, March 3-9, 2014 as Foreign Language Week. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize the work of our foreign language educators. In his proclamation, Governor Cuomo wrote the following, “ The foreign language classroom is the venue where language and culture are intertwined and students gain new perspectives on the world, and I join to commend teachers of foreign languages and students who embark on a global adventure to cross boundaries and borders, and, acknowledge those who promote school language programs so that today’s youth can increase their future potential through the ability to speak, understand, read and write in other languages.”
Code Breaker: On a recent trip to the Long Island Math Museum, our students were presented with a challenge by the museum facilitator to break a cypher. This cypher, which is a coded message, had only been decoded by 10 other individuals in the long history of the museum. We are pleased to report that 9th grade student, Connor Stewart successfully cracked the code and will be added to the short list of names on display at the museum. Way to go Connor!
Random Acts of Kindness: We are pleased to share that Katherine Hammer, Ava Stanisci, Rebecca White and Julia Annunziata were awarded a Random Acts of Kindness Award for being kind when they thought nobody was looking.
Two important reminders for students and parents:
Revised Calendar: Due to inclement weather closings, school will now be in session for students on Monday, April 21st and Friday, May 23rd.
2014-15 Course Selection: Please continue to speak with your child regarding their course selections for the 2014-15 school year. It is important that careful consideration is given to this process as we use this information to develop our master schedule. As a result, changes to course selections will soon be restricted.
