It is so hard to believe that one month of school has gone by so fast! Now that programs and classes have settled down, October becomes a very important month for our students. Keep the conversation about school at home alive. Ask your children about their progress in their classes, their upcoming assignments and assessments, and if they need any support in being their most successful in school. We are here to support you in any questions you may have about your child's academic performance and progress.
On that note...are you signed on to Pupil Path? Parents, I can not speak highly enough about Pupil Path! Pupil Path is a web based program that allows you to see your child's academic progress in real time- from any computer or smartphone! There is also an email component to Pupil Path that our teachers use to communicate with you, and of course you can communicate with teachers as well using the feature. If you are in need of a sign-on and password, please contact the school and we will provide it for you. Better yet, in the next week or so, the passwords will be mailed home TO YOU! Please sign up- it is a crucial component to your child's academic success.
There are so many great things happening at Studio. Congratulations on our Digital Media and Communication Program's recent certification as a CTE, or Career Technical Education Program! With that, we are receiving a 120,000 grant to upgrade our Computer Lab! In keeping in line with "up keep", have you seen our Library? It looks amazing and our new Librarian, Ms. Sharpe (with help from Mr. Intonti) is excited to transform the space into a library fit for today's student! Let's not forget our recent Reso-A grant of 100,000 for new SMARTboards in every classroom. We are so appreciative of the outside grant funding we receive to make education as Studio a better for our students!
Finally, please take the time to contact our new Parent Coordinator Ms. Mary Ann Ortiz. Ms. Ortiz took on the role Parent Coordinator this September and she is working hard to connect to our Studio parents and families. Please feel free to reach out to Ms. Ortiz at ext. 1095 when you call the school.
I wish you and your family the very best this time of year!
Principal, Brooklyn Studio Secondary School
