Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank.
It was great to see so many HSFI Families at Parent Visitation Days this past Thursday and Friday – these are two of my favorite days of the school year. HSFI families are invited back to HSFI for Parent Teacher Conferences next Thursday and Friday, November 9 and 10.
If you have not already seen HSFI featured on NY1 for our success with our students in Advanced Placement Computer Science, please view this clip – the link is below and also posted on the school website in the Fashion News section. We have great major classes like Fashion Design, Graphics and Illustration, Visual Merchandising and Fashion Marketing, but this video shows that we also have great academics.
Students will receive their report cards on Monday. We are now in the second marking period. You and your child need to understand that student grades are cumulative, meaning that all grades count during a given term. Grades do not start over with the second marking period and there are not separate grades for each marking period. Second marking period grades are a combination of the first and second marking periods. Third marking period grades and the grades that go on a student’s transcript and seen by colleges are a combination of the first, second and third marking periods.
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.
