August 1, 2014
Our four academies are about to conclude the fourth week of the 2014 summer session. There has been a great deal of activity in each of the academies that include but not limited to preparation for the August Regents examinations and Regents Competency Tests (RCTs), which are held on August 13th and August 14th, Career Development and Occupational Skills (CDOS) activities, wellness activities, social skills training and credit recovery courses, partial credit courses such as driver’s education and health and educational community trips. Overall, it has been a productive summer session. I greatly appreciate your trust in our administration and staff to provide an education for your child this summer session.
One of the many highlights of this summer session to date has been REACH Academy’s trip to Citi Field in Queens to witness our hometown team, the New York Mets outscore the Philadelphia Phillies 11-2. Students and staff attended the game in perfect baseball weather, 75 degrees and sunny as they witnessed the Mets hit two home runs! All in all, the 70+ students and staff enjoyed our first trip to Citi Field as they practiced a variety of social skills and of course, had a great deal of fun. Please see the REACH Academy homepage for pictures from Citi Field. Please continue to visit our District website and regularly check for news and updates from the District and your child’s academy.
The District is still in need of a Board of Education member. Approximately 3 hours per month are required. If you are interested, please contact Ms. Jennifer Herrera, District Clerk at 914-231-8627 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
