    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    We are pleased to announce that our school is using "Pupil Path" web site to bring you immediate information regarding your child's education.

    Pupil Path allows you to view the following:
    • Your child's assignments and projects along with due dates.
    • Your child's performance in each class including homework, class work, tests and projects.
    • Progress reports from teachers throughout the school year.
    • Handouts and assignments when your child is absent from school.
    • Your child's transcripts and graduation eligibility status.
    • School announcements, new calendar listings and upcoming events.
    • And, in some classrooms, your child's attendance.

    We hope that by enabling you to see this information on a daily basis we will be able to work together to ensure that our children remain on track in every class.  As we work together we will ensure that our students get the most out of their education.

    This will take the place of the old pupil progress report.

    Letters were sent home today 10-03-2013 for the 7th and 8th grade.



    Parents when making changes/updates on the "BLUE CARD",
     bring in proof of the change/update to the school secretaries
     
    The change/update will not go through
    on the computer if proof is not provided


    Please make Doctor/Dentist appointments
     for after school hours
    Taking your child out of school early
    distracts the class
     and
     you lose valuable instruction time
    for your child


    The Mayor & The Schools Chancellor
     have implemented

    The MOBILE TEXTING PROGRAM

    --this will send city-wide school-related information,
    including calendar updates,

    You can join by texting nycschools to 877877
    to receive text messages throughout the year.
