As we enter Spring, it is a good time to re-evaluate and take inventory. At IEYMS, we have had a terrific year so far, and we are now into testing season. June will soon be here, and I would ask everyone to review your child’s grades and speak to the school counselor if there are any question pertaining to progress. We will be posting our “End of Year” schedule, which will include Final Exams soon.
For our 8th grade families, please refer to the correspondence regarding graduation requirements and possible failing grades. There is a link on this website. There will be a number of social events coming up for our 8th graders, and I ask you to review the eligibility criteria in advance.
Please correspond with your child’s school counselor if you have any questions. Please do not hesitate to call me if you wish. I wish you the best in health and good spirit.
Dr. Anthony Bongo, IEYMS Principal

On March 26th, students and staff gathered in the Isaac Young Middle School lobby for the unveiling of a special plaque. The plaque was dedicated to Mr. Willaim Moye. Mr. Moye was a proud graduate of Isaac Young's first graduating class! He was also veteran of World War II and a living legend in new Rochelle. His good friend Barbara Davis from the New Rochelle Public Library was on hand to say some lovely words about Mr. Moye. March 26th would have been Mr. Moye's 103 birthday!

RE: 2018 NYS English Language Arts and Math grades 3-8 Testing Program
In a couple of weeks, the New York State Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Tests will be administered to students. The ELA will be given on Wednesday April 11th and Thursday April 12th, and the Math on Tuesday May 1st and Wednesday May 2nd.
Beginning this year the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests have been reduced from three test sessions to only two test sessions, meaning each subject will have two days of testing instead of three. With fewer test sessions, each test will have fewer questions than recent years, lessening test fatigue for students and better enabling them to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.
Additionally, like the 2016 and 2017 tests, the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests will continue to be untimed so students who are still working on their exams will be allowed to continue to work, within the confines of the regular school day. Students who finish may be permitted to hand in their test materials and leave the room.
Regarding teacher and principal evaluations/APPR, student performance on the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Test will have no employment-related consequences. In December 2015, the Board of Regents approved a moratorium on using students’ scores on these exams for educators’ consequential evaluation scores. This means no teachers or principals in New York State public schools will be affected by the results of the 2018 Grades 3-8 ELA and Math Tests.
Test questions and instructional reports will be released before the end of the school year. Like last year, the State Education Department will be release 75% of the questions from the 2018 tests and the instructional reports on or around June 1. You can view 2017 test questions on Engage NY at https://www.engageny.org/3-8.
You can find out more information about the State Tests on the State Education Department’s Website at http://p12.nysed.gov/
Thank you for your time.
