Principal's Message

 Dear Parent/Guardian,

I would like to wish you and your child a very enjoyable and safe summer break.  I also would like to thank you for your partnership in the academic, artistic and personal growth of your child.  This year has been very successful on many levels.  It is due in no small part to the support our school gets from parents.  I truly look forward to our continued partnership in the upcoming school year. 

Summer school will officially begin July 9th.  Regents exam invitations will be mailed in early August to all students scheduled to take a Regents exam in August.

The first day of the fall term for students is September 5th.  Our school day officially begins at 8:20 a.m., so please ensure for adequate transportation planning and a timely arrival by 8:10 a.m.  The fall schedule for students will be mailed at the beginning of August.  Included in the mailing you will find a supply list for the upcoming school year.  Additionally, please ensure that your child completes the summer assignments, both in art and academics, listed on our website under the summer assignments tab from the Student menu.

We will be offering a bridge program for all incoming Freshmen students during the last week of August: Tuesday, August 28, Wednesday, August 29 and Thursday, August 30 (please see the Bridge Program link under the Parents tab on our website).

Feel free to contact the school with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Manuel Ureña, Principal
