To the SFE Community,
The first semester classes end on Friday, January 18th. Any student who owes work should make sure that they get it to their teacher(s) by this date. Any student taking a Regents Exam in January 2019 should be studying everyday up until the day of the exam. Packets have been provided by the Regents Prep teachers and are also available on this website under the Regents schedule in the Upcoming Events section of this page. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 29th. That is the first day of the second semester.
As per Department of Education rules, cell phone and other electronic devices are not permitted in school. These items will be confiscated by security at the door upon entering the school and given back at the end of the day. In addition, students should dress appropriately while attending school. For more information check our school website at www.schoolforexcellence.org, to get information regarding your child’s classwork and school events. Also, as per DOE rules, students are NOT allowed to wear do-rags in school. Only students who have an elevator pass are allowed to use the elevators. Students using the elevators without permission are subject to disciplinary action.
Our school campus has the services of a fully staffed Montefiore clinic with full services. Please visit our website to read more about this great service and to download an application. Also, our 2018-2019 school’s schedule is included on the website along with various other school-related items.
We will strive to continue to make the School for Excellence a safe, secure and welcoming place to learn and grow. We want your children to continue to take advantage of our programs by participating in our extended day, evening and weekend activities. Of course, we cannot do this without your help and support. Please make sure your son/daughter comes to school each and every day. Talk to them about their teachers, subject classes and homework. Check our school calendar, on the website, regularly to keep up with what is going on at SFE. We are all partners in this educational journey and together we will continue to make the School for Excellence a safe, secure and welcoming place to learn and grow.
Finally, my door is always open and together we will continue our mission of providing your children with the education that will make them prepared for the challenges of college and careers of the 21st century.
Have a Great Holiday,
Principal-School for Excellence
