Washington DC Trip Information Session

Our graduating seniors will have an opportunity to attend a senior class trip to Washington DC and Six Flags on May 24-26, 2017. As this is an overnight, out-of-city trip, parents who are interested in having their child attend must participate in a mandatory information session. At the session you will learn more details about the trip and have the opportunity to reserve a seat for your child. You will also learn about a fundraiser opportunity your child can participate in to pay for some of the trip expense. The cost of the trip may vary according to your child’s participation in the fundraising event. Please bring a blank check with you to the information session, in the event you will reserve a space for your child.

You may attend either information session:
Thursday, November 3, 2016 at 6pm in the school auditorium.
Monday, November 7, 2016 at 9am in the school auditorium.

Interim Progress Reports

Dear Parent/Guardian,

During PM Homeroom today, all students will be receiving printed reports from their “Jupiter Grades” accounts.  These reports are the interim progress reports for the first quarter.  It is important to note these reports are only current until new information is added by child’s teachers.  The reports include your child’s class averages at this point in the first quarter.

In order to ensure your child’s progress is monitored, utilize your login username and password for Jupiter Grades.  By consistently checking your child’s grades and academic progress, you will be able to work collaboratively with your child and his/her teachers when issues or concerns arise.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers by email or by phone at (718)423-8138.  You can leave a message for the appropriate teacher.

Jupiter Grades can strengthen the partnership between the school and the home.  We will continue to update you with important school announcements by utilizing the School Messenger system and our PTA website.  An improved school website will be launched in the coming weeks, and it will be another way to keep our school community informed about upcoming events and announcements.  In addition, an “After-School Programming Schedule” is being developed based on the interests and needs identified from the surveys completed by students.  Specific information about the activities, clubs, and teams beginning at this point in the school year will be shared through various means of communication.  If interested, please have your child reach out to the appropriate staff member facilitator for that activity, club, or team.

I also would like to remind you about the upcoming Parent-Teacher Conferences on Wednesday, October 26th (5:00pm-8:00pm) and Thursday, October 27th (12:20pm-2:20pm).  Thank you in advance for your continued support.

CHAMPS After School Badminton Program

editada_-_shutterstock_106009616Mr. Viruet will be starting the CHAMPS after school badminton program.

Per Mr. Viruet: “The program will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2:20-3:30. The program runs from October 13-December 16. Students will also be notified of any cancellations due to scheduling conflicts. Students must submit a permission slip to Mr. Viruet to participate. There will be a limit as to the number of students that can participate on a daily basis. Therefore, I am asking students to sign up on the days they wish to participate. It will be on a first come , first serve basis. (Max # of Students will be 30 for each day) Students do not have to come every day but may choose to do so as long as they are signed up to participate on that specific day. If you have any questions please ask. The first day will be on this coming Wednesday. However, Friday’s session will be cancelled.”

We thank the school and Mr. Viruet for this new program being offered to our students.
