Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank.
As you are planning your schedule for the week, please keep in mind that this Wednesday, December 18, we will have our monthly Parents Association meeting at 6:00 pm. This meeting was rescheduled from last week’s meeting that was cancelled.
This is the last week of school until our Winter Break – every day of instruction is important so make sure students are making them count! All students come back to school on Thursday, January 2. Once we get back from vacation, we will have two weeks of school until the Fall term ends where teachers submit their final grades that colleges and universities will see. January Regents will take place the week of January 21.
The third marking period of the Fall term continues. There are three weeks left in the third marking period and the whole Fall term. 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 third marking period and there are not separate grades for each marking period. Third marking period grades go on a student’s transcript and are seen by colleges. These third marking period grades are a combination of the first, second and third marking periods. We have been going over these facts during our grade level assemblies with students. We will meet with the 11th and 12th grades this week.
It is critically important that all HSFI students check their HSFI email & Jupiter Grades everyday. We will be sending important information out through both 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.
