  • 11/22 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning!

    I hope you all had a good weekend.

    This is a short week for the Thanksgiving break.

    The new semester has started so do attend classes on a consistent basis so you do not fall behind. Remember that it is the average of quarter 1 and quarter 2 that equal the semester grade and how you get the credit for your class. This applies to internship as well. For the internship paper it is the combination of all of the assignments that lead to the paper and the completion of the paper that make up your grade. Do stay on top of this!

    Wednesday we will be having our annual Thanksgiving lunch for students. We will have turkey with all of the sides and dessert. There will also be a student v. staff game that Mr. Asher is planning for the morning, this is a yearly tradition that is back on track. After lunch students may leave, so yes, this is a half day for you. Do plan on coming in, it is a light day for you.

    Dates to be mindful of:
    11/25 &11/26- School closed for Thanksgiving
    I do wish you all a very thankful Thanksgiving no matter where you are or who you are with.
    If you have any questions please let me know.
    Take care,
    Donna Lobato

  • 11/15 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning,

    I hope you had a good weekend.

    Today is the start of the 2nd quarter so make sure you attend school regularly in order to stay on top of your work so you do not have to make a mad dash to catch up at the end of the semester.

    As a reminder, if you are enrolled in a Regents class, that means you will be scheduled to take that Regents in January. There are no more Regents waivers being given. The exception to this is the US History Regents and this is for January 2022 only. If you are enrolled in the US History class, make sure you attend and pass so you can receive that waiver.

    Tomorrow is Parent-Teacher conferences from 1:30-6:00. Your teachers have sent a Calendly link out if you would like to attend by ZOOM or you may attend in person. Students will be dismissed after 4th period. We look forward to seeing you.

    For those that sent consent forms for random COVID testing, this will start tomorrow morning.

    We will be having a Thanksgiving dinner for lunch on 11/24 along with a student vs. staff  game that Mr. Asher is organizing- be prepared to lose :-) This a a fun morning so do plan to attend school.

    Dates to be mindful of:

    11/25 and 11/26-School closed for Thanksgiving

    As always, if you have any questions please let me know.

    Take care,

    I hope you all had a good weekend and hopefully got an extra hour of sleep.

    11/12 is the end of the first marking period so be sure to turn in your makeup work. We will also have parent-teacher conferences on 11/14 from 1:30 -6:00 pm. This will be in person along with a ZOOM option. For families that want to meet remotely, teachers will be sending out a Calendly link where you can make an appointment to meet on ZOOM. The links for this will be sent out by Wednesday through Jupiter Ed. For in-person meetings you can come in between 1:30 pm and 6:00 pm to meet with the teachers. All COVID protocols will be followed and we do require masks for everybody.

    As a reminder, if you do need to leave early please contact the school either by phone or note. If a note is sent in we will confirm with a phone call. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

    We will begin COVID testing here at the school beginning on 11/15 for those that sent consent forms in. For those that requested consent forms, Ms. Fields will get you those.

    You must attend school consistently; this also includes internship. Your internship work along with the paper gives you 2 additional credits and is also half of your educational program  This is just as important as attending your academic week. If you have any questions about the program please let me know and I can answer them for you. We want to see you here!!!

    11/11- Veterans Day-No school- Thank you to ALL of our Veterans

    Good morning!

    I hope you all had a good weekend and got the "good" candy. For those that celebrate the Day of the Dead and Diwali, I hope you enjoy those celebrations as well.

    Tomorrow the school building will not be open but there will be assignments on Juno Pods to be completed. Teachers will have limited access to their e-mails since we will be in professional development all day. These are graded assignments so be sure to complete them.

    As a reminder, please notify the school if you need to leave early for an appointment. Bringing in a note is fine and Ms. Fields or Mr. Wolf will follow up with a call to confirm.

    We will be having parent teacher conferences on 11/16 in afternoon until 6:00 PM. More information will be sent out about this and we will have a ZOOM option to meet with teachers.

    Ms. Simmons has moved on from New Dawn, and we wish her all the best. Mr. Brown, who has been working with the internship papers, will be taking over her classes and Ms. Tomecki will be taking the English Lab class for the time being. If you have any questions about this please let me know.

    Dates to be mindful of:
    11/11-No school- Veterans Day
    11/12-End of Marking pd 1

  • 10/18 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning everyone,

    I hope you all had a good weekend.

    If you have not done so already please meet with your teachers to make up any missed class work. The school policy is students can make up any missed work during the marking period you are in so do take advantage of this. Marking period ends 11/12.

    Do make every effort to come to school and if you cannot for that day call or e-mail your mentor to let us know. It is important that you do come on a consistent basis so that you do not fall behind and keep on track to graduate, internship included. The school day starts at 9:00 AM.

    In our continued implementation of COVID protocols all students and staff are required to wear masks. If you do forget we have disposable masks available at the entrance. Everyone has been very cooperative and we hope one day we can throw these masks away.

    Dates to be mindful of:

    11/2- Election day- remote instruction for all students
    11/11- school closed- Veterans day
    11/12-End of marking period 1
    11/25 & 11/26- School closed for Thanksgiving

    Have a great week!
