Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal, Daryl Blank. It was great to see so many Fashion family members at the opening of our International Center of Photography exhibit, our Spring SING musical performance and our Parents Association meeting ‘Sketch Night’ where you had the chance to learn about the art of sketching from professionals with live models.
We have 6 weeks of classes left before Regents examinations. The second marking period ends this Tuesday, May 2. Make sure your children know this and appreciate the importance of finishing the school year strong. Counselors will be programming students for summer school based on these gardes. Students must understand the grades that they receive in June will be the ones that colleges will see.
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week – it would be great if you took the time this week to write a note, send an email or call a HSFI teacher that has made a special impact on your child’s education. We have a dedicated teaching staff that works tirelessly on behalf of your children and the HSFI community. Please encourage your child to shout out a HSFI teacher through the Google survey I sent them through Jupiter Grades and their HSFI email. It would mean a lot to our staff.
This Monday is a ‘First Monday’ schedule where students will start school later and be dismissed from school early so that our staff can meet in teacher teams for professional development. Students who begin school 1st period will start at 8:30 am. Students who begin school 2nd period will start at 9:09 am. Students who finish school after 8th period will be dismissed at 1:43 pm. Students who finish school after 9th period will be dismissed at 2:22 pm.
We should be very excited as our student showcases continue this week – these are great moments for our students – the ones that they will remember about their HSFI years! Our Senior Art Show that showcases our Graphics & Illustration students opens this Friday, May 5.
Our public Fashion Show that showcases our Fashion Design students is next Friday, May 12. As always, our window displays will reflect the amazing work that our Visual Merchandising students do on a daily basis. Tickets for the Fashion Show are available online now. There are 2 performances on the May 12 date at 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm. Tickets are $7 each. Both shows are the same price. All the money raised from the Fashion Show is reinvested into our show for next year. Tickets can and must be picked up in the FLY School Store after May 1. Students must bring their receipt and sign for the tickets. The FLY school store is open 7:00 am to 1:30 pm. The online link to purchase tickets is:
