Dear Parent / Guardian:

Pre-K to grade 2 students will be functioning on a normal schedule.
     
  5. On December 15 the students in grades 3-8 received the revision topics and pages that will help to prepare them for their exams (you can also print a copy from the school website).  Please encourage your child to continue reviewing. Your input and involvement are extremely important for your child’s success. The grades achieved on these exams are strong components of their final grades. Enclosed is the Schedule that will help your child to be better prepared for these examinations. Please make sure that your child’s account is up to date, which means December and January payments should have been paid. If not your child will have to take these exams at a later date, please do not send your child to school.

6. This year we are going to sell tickets online for the concert. We will print a minimum amount at school for those who send us the money ahead of time. The concert is scheduled for Saturday, March 2, 2019
 

7. The cost for the advance tickets will be $10.00 per adult, and $5.00 per child. After Feb. 28, the tickets will be increased by $5.00. Please help the school as we continue to provide the best for your child and all of our students. Here is the project we have in mind: Raise $70,000 to purchase a new furnace system for the school.

The concert will be at Dewitt Clinton High School 100 W Mosholu Pkway South  Bronx, NY 10468.(one block from Bronx HS of Science)

We encourage everyone to purchase online tickets. By doing so, we will save money on the expenses. Tickets can also be purchased at the school. We will have one representative in each constituent church to sell tickets for the concert. We will not send home tickets.  Everyone will receive a flyer to advertise to your friends and members of your family. When you collect the money, send the money in a sealed envelope with your child’s name written on it to the school, and we will send you your ticketsThose who do not purchase a ticket before the evening of the concert will pay $15.00  at the door.

Students who score 80 % and above will advance to the next level on February 8. The second level will be done orally in the classrooms, and the final level will in the gym with the two top spellers competing for the championship position on Wednesday, February 13.  Please continue to prepare your child by practicing with him / her from the list provided on the school website.

9. The Junior Choir(PK- gr.3) will be visiting Morris Park SDA Church on Sabbath, Feb.  2, 2019. Please mark your calendar. It is important that the children go to the constituent churches to thank them for their investment in the school.
