MISSION STATEMENT

The School For Excellence will develop in all students' active intellectual and critical thinking skills in literacy, social studies, mathematics, and science to inform a strong sense of social responsibility. Through our multicultural curriculum that integrates the creative arts within the instruction of academic courses, students' perceptions will be extended beyond their immediate circle to encompass a broader world-view.

School For Excellence Updated Blended Learning Plan

 

Dear SFE Families,


As discussed in last week’s Town Hall Meeting and School Leadership Team (SLT) Meeting, we have submitted a proposal to change our current learning model which has been officially APPROVED.

Click on the link below for more information.

 

 Parent's Letter - Blended Learning Update - October 2020

 

What concerns do you want to raise about your student's learning this year?

Please fill out our preference survey on our school website for more input. You can also inform the Department of Education of your learning preference by visiting the New York City Department of Education learning preference webpage here or calling 311.

   

 

NYC Schools Account (NYCSA)

Parents and Guardians: The New York City Department of Education had made it easier to sign up for an NYC Schools Account (NYCSA). Setting up a basic account will allow you to get emergency notifications from the DOE.  

You can create a basic account online from any computer, phone, or tablet. All you need to do is:

  • Go to https://mystudent.nyc/saa/signup
  • Set up the account by:
    • Entering  your name and email address,
    • creating a password, and
    • answering a few brief security questions so you can reset the password if you forget it.

After you create your account, you will be able to link students to your account. You will need to verify your identity and your relationship with that student. You can do that by contacting the school. Once your information is confirmed, you will be able to see your child’s grades, test scores, and attendance. 

 

Student Meals

Students! Just because you are learning remotely, does not mean you can not enjoy a nutritious school meal. Free breakfast and lunch are served daily between 9 am and 12 pm for remote learners here at the Morris Campus. Meals may be picked up at the campus front door.

 A bowl filled with cereal and milk.  A paper bag lunch with an apple and milk container.
