Homework

 Happy Thanksgiving!  May the Lord bless you and your family, and keep you safe as you travel to celebrate with family and friends.

 

 

Yearbook: Mrs. DeLuca is working with the 8th grade on their yearbook.  The baby pictures MUST be in by 12/5. They will be returned most likely in April after the yearbook has been okayed with the printer.

Thank you all for getting your  public high school applications in on time. Please sign and return the receipt, make any needed changes (the whole entering, receipt, signing, returning until all okay). You will be given a copy of the final signed receipt.  Match letters are due sometime in March.

8th Grade:  Continue to attend Sunday mass – preferably at SSK’s 9 am mass – bring in the signed bulletin from the church/mass you attended on Mondays.

Public HS Calendar on DOE web site

Public HS Admissions Calendar on the DOE website can be accessed through the following link (hopefully it is actually a link otherwise copy and paste).  It will give you information about HS Admissions sessions, etc. If you cannot copy & paste, then type what you see as the URL and it will get you to the current HS Admissions calendar. 

http://schools.nyc.gov/ChoicesEnrollment/Calendar/default.htm?subcatid=42

The Public High School Directory is also on line.  The fastest way to get to it is to google it.  The link will be clearly stated.  The public high school admissions office has also put a Search section on their site, so that you can find your zoned high school, schools with interest areas, locations, etc. 

Important: please read through the Introduction in the High School Directory.  It clearly gives you their admissions process.  You can also go to their information sessions to ask them questions directly, and get a Directory and the Specialized HS/LaGuardia  Student Handbook.
