Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank. We are officially in the second marking period, so make sure your children are starting off strong and you are checking Jupiter Grades everyday to know where they stand in their classes.
This past Thursday, we celebrated the official opening of the Falcon Health Center with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. Along with our student government and HSFI Parents Association President Monique Anderson, attending the ceremony was NY State Assembly Member Dick Gottfried; Department of Health Deputy Commissioner George Askew; staff from the Institute for Family Health who are the medical providers at the center and representatives from the NYC Department of Education. .
On Monday, Department of Education Chancellor Farina will be visiting HSFI to highlight our College Access work that includes our APPS college prep classes, guidance support, Youth Leaders and Bridge Coaches. Chancellor Farina will be highlighting a SAT School Day pilot program that HSFI will be participating in this March where all 11th graders will be taking the SAT on a school day in school for free. We at HSFI are thrilled to be part of this program that will be a reality for all schools starting next year. There will be newspaper and TV press there at the event and I will let the entire HSFI community know about the coverage as it becomes available to me.
There are volunteer opportunities available for HSFI parents to get involved in our different school committees. There are four main committees:
(1) Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports / Fashion Dollars Committee
(2) Academic and Career & Technical Education Accreditation Committee
(3) Advocating & Preparing for Post-Secondary Success Committee
(4) School Safety Committee
