Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank. It was great to see so many HSFI parents at our first Parents Association meeting of the school year this past Wednesday.
Fashion Cares will be collecting donations for The Puerto Rican Family Institute for recent hurricane and earthquake victims. The supplies that are most needed are: toiletries (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, brushes, combs, deodorant, etc), non-perishable foods (canned foods, oatmeal, bags of rice, dried beans, crackers, etc). Donations should be brought to room 646 the week of September 25th-29th.
I want to announce that our Lateness Plan will begin this Monday, September 25. For this week, our plan is to not allow late students up to class first period after 8:15 am (five minutes after the music stops playing) – no student will be allowed into classrooms after 8:20 am (we are giving students these five minutes between 8:15 and 8:20 to get to class). Obviously, we will not use this plan if there are major transit delays on that particular morning. Our students’ job right now is being a student, our students must be on time to work. Students who are late will be housed in our auditorium until the next class period begins.
This coming Thursday, September 28 & Friday, September 29, we will be holding our annual Student Club Fair with over 30 clubs and activities presenting at the fair. Please encourage your children to attend the Club Fair and then join a club or activity that interests them.
SONY pictures has developed an Anti-Bullying Public Service Announcement connected to the ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’ film and will be launching the PSA at HSFI this Tuesday. They will have some people who worked on the film including an actress and one of the stunt people at the school to help launch it. Our student government will be involved as well. After the anti-bullying PSA launch, they will be doing a screening of the entire ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’ film for the entire HSFI community.
All students and their families still need to submit lunch applications. You can now fill out your lunch application online at https://www.myschoolapps.com/. If you do not want to do the lunch application online, we have paper copies of the application all throughout the school building. The easiest place for your child to pick up a paper lunch application is in the school lobby when they arrive to school or in the school’s main office in Room 125. All paper applications should be returned to the school’s main office in Room 125. I hate to bother you about these lunch applications, but they are necessary to get the much needed funding for the school.
It is critically important that all HSFI students check their HSFI email & Jupiter Grades everyday. We will be sending important information out through these tools – if students do not check them, they will miss out on some valuable opportunities and not know what is going on in the school.
