7th Grade College Access Trip

Dear 7th Grade Parent/Guardian,

As part of the New York City College Access for All-Middle School initiative, your child may have an opportunity to visit a college campus to learn more about college culture. We are currently planning a trip for our 7th grade students to visit the Adelphi University Campus on January 16 or 22, 2020. During the trip, students will have an opportunity to tour a campus, learn about various departments, and participate in engaging activities. Tours will begin at 11:00 AM and end around 12:30pm. Lunch (pizza) will be provided when we return back to MS67 (Due to the intersession time, the campus dining area will not be available). The trip is free for our Grade 7 students, however space is limited. The first 96 students to submit this completed consent form will reserve a seat. Due to capacity limits at Adelphi, there will be two separate dates (January 16 or 22). If your child is interested and is one of the first 96 students to submit this form and the NYC DOE Chancellor Trip form (attached), he/she will be assigned to one of the two dates based on scheduling. Students need to also sign the Chancellor Trip form.

Our students and chaperones will be traveling by school bus, leaving school at approximately 10AM and returning to school at approximately 1PM. If you are interested in having your child attend, please submit this form to the main office as soon as possible. Seats will be reserved in the order that permission slips are submitted to the main office. Students will still be held to the standards of the NYC Discipline code while on the trip. Adelphi has requested that all student cell phones be turned off during the campus tour and to leave their book bags home. Students are also expected to dress appropriately.

School staff members will accompany students on each trip. Attendance in school is still mandatory for students not attending the trip. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Anthony Rizzo, Assistant Principal

Senior Trip Information Session

Referring to my previous letter dated September 10th, since the Washington D.C. senior trip is an overnight, out of the city trip, parents/guardians who are interested in having their child attend must participate in a mandatory information session. For your convenience, one early morning and one evening session was available to choose from.

We will offer one final session on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 at 9 AM in our school auditorium. If a parent or guardian did not attend any one of the information sessions, your child will not be able to attend this trip.

Welcome Letter for 8th Grade

Please see below for message from Mr. Lampoutis. A copy was backpacked home with your child. PDF available HERE.

Dear 8th Grade Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

Welcome Back! I would like to take this opportunity at the beginning of the school year to outline some key dates concerning our graduating seniors. Please note the following 8th grade events on your family calendar:

(UPDATED**Evening information session for the Senior Trip has been moved to Monday, Oct 7th at 6pm.)

*Students who have received two “N” or “U” Conduct Grades on their report cards any quarter, by two teachers or the same teacher may not participate in the Senior Trip. If a student received a level 3-level 5 code infraction based on the NYCDOE discipline code (B-21-B-62), they will not be permitted to attend the trip. Additionally, participation will be based on administrator’s discretion.

** Since this is an overnight, out of the city trip, parents/guardians who are interested in having their child attend must participate in one of the two information sessions. For your convenience, one early morning and one evening session is available to choose from. If a parent/guardian does not attend one information session, your child will not be able to attend this trip.

Please note if any calendar date/time needs to be changed, you will be notified immediately. As dates approach, more detailed information will be communicated regarding each event. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (718) 423-8138 or by email at Tlampoutis@schools.nyc.gov.

Sincerely,
