Principal's Corner

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,


Congratulations to the Class of 2017! We will miss you.


Summer School starts on Monday, July 10th. Anyone registered for summer school, please come to the school on July 10th at 8:00 am. Come prepared with a notebook and pen or pencil. Please make sure, if you are enrolled, to attend. The classes you will be taking are a requirement for graduation.

Parents, please make sure that your child is reading everyday over the summer. It is important that all students continue to keep improving their literary skills.

I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy summer. Any questions please feel free to e mail me at jhousto@schools.nyc.gov .
