Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank.
This Monday marks the first ‘First Monday’ 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. All classes during the day will be shortened. There will be no First Monday in November. In December’s First Monday, we will have students involved in activities of their interest instead of shortened classes.
This Monday, October 1, HSFI families are invited to join our Assistant Principal of Family Engagement Danielle Silva for coffee, bagels and muffins from 9:00 am -10:00 am in room 127. This is another opportunity for HSFI families to share their ideas and express what is on their minds.
It was nice to see HSFI families at our first Parents Association meeting of the school year this past Wednesday. I want to thank our new Parents Association Executive Board for stepping up to represent our great families. Thank you to Ms. Tanisha Tabor, our PA President; Ms. Lashawn Clarke, our PA Vice President; Ms. Katiana Kalouf and Ms. Murielle Gousse, our PA Co-Secretaries; and Mr. Eric Schwartzman; our PA Treasurer.
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.
