8th Grade News – High School Application Workshop & Buddy Days

HIGH SCHOOL APPLICATION WORKSHOP – 

Wednesday October 2  — 6:30pm Cafeteria

Nick Molido from McClancy High School will lead a workshop on applying for high schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn.  After his presentation, I will present the steps for applying for NYC public schools. This workshop is not mandatory, but very helpful for your process over the next few months.

 

BUDDY DAYS with High Schools– 

Buddy days are an extremely important part of the high school selection process.  However, whenever students attend a Buddy Day, they miss important classroom instruction which can lead to students falling behind on assignments.  With this in mind, a student is allowed to attend 2 buddy days in their 8th grade year, and if they are in good academic standing, an additional buddy day will be granted.  Please check with your homeroom teacher before making arrangements for the 3rd day.
