Algebra I Regents Reminder

Students in grade 8 who have been taking the Algebra I prep course this year will be taking the Regents test on Wednesday,  June 13 at 1:15 pm.  Students are required to stay a minimum of two hours for the test.

The passing grade is 65%.  For the past 2 years we have had 100% passing rate with a score of 65% or higher.

However, parents should be in touch with their child’s high school to see what grade the school will accept in order for the student to move on to Algebra II as a freshman.  Every high school has a different grade they will accept in order for this to happen.  It is the decision of the high school.

Students need to bring black pens for the test.  Calculators for the test will be provided but if a student wishes to use their own they may.  Cell phone calculators are not allowed.

Re-registration reminder

March 15, 2017

 

Dear Parents,

This letter is a reminder that we are in the process of re-registration for the 2017-2018 school year. Re-registration forms have been sent home and we are asking you to respond as soon as it is possible.  The re-registration fee will be $250 per family after March 31st, $200 before that date.   Current families will be assured a seat for their child for next year if they register by March 31st.  After the March 31st date, registration will be opened for new families and classes will be closed as we reach a thirty student capacity.

As we go forward with our plans for next year, it is important to us for budgetary purposes to know as early as possible, our rate of re-registration. Our recent Open House was well attended and we have many new families who have expressed a strong desire to register their child for next year.   Thank you for your attention to this matter, and please call the school office if a new re-registration form is needed.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Gallina
Interim Principal

Please fill out and return to the office if you are not returning next year.

Help families pay for tuition at Catholic elementary and secondary schools

Lawmakers are expected to enact a state budget by the end of March and, once again, they are considering a program to help families pay for tuition at Catholic elementary and secondary schools. While there is considerable support for the initiative, there are those who strongly oppose offering any support to our tuition-paying families. Please take a moment to urge Governor Cuomo and legislators to help families pay for Catholic school tuition by including Education Tax Credits or a similar program in the enacted state budget. Time is of the essence. Send the editable message below to your legislators.
