IEYMS Principal’s Platform
The IEYMS Principal’s Platform is a forum where parents can ask questions, bring concerns, or just socialize with the school principal. In exchange, the principal will bring ideas, challenges and concerns to the table as well. The purpose of these meetings is to keep parents, and the community, informed and up-to date on all IEY matters. 

Plataforma del IEYMS Principal es un foro donde los padres pueden hacer preguntas, traer preocupaciones, o simplemente socializar con el director de la escuela. A cambio, el director aportar ideas, retos y preocupaciones a la mesa también. El propósito de estas reuniones es mantener a los padres, y la comunidad, informada y actualizada sobre todos los asuntos que el IEY.

Initial Meeting: October 6, 2014, 6:00pm

Research suggests students who are active readers excel in their academic programs. This is due to a broader vocabulary base, greater exposure to writing in multiple areas, and because of the imagination formulations that accompany reading.  The purpose of the YR Club is to introduce the families of our middle-school students to young adult literature and the associated authors 

La investigación sugiere que los estudiantes que son lectores activos sobresalen en sus programas académicos. Esto es debido a una base de vocabulario más amplio, una mayor exposición a la escritura en múltiples áreas, y debido a las formulaciones que acompañan imaginación de lectura. El propósito del Club es introducir a las familias de nuestros estudiantes de la escuela media a la literatura juvenil y los autores asociados.

Isaac’s Lemonade Stand to Fight Childhood Cancer

A New Beginning

Dear CSDNR Family,

A New Beginning

With excitement and anticipation, I welcome you to the 2014-15 school year. Today on the first day of school, from the elementary to middle schools to the high school, I saw fantastic energy and enthusiasm among students, teachers and staff. We began by coming together yesterday at our staff opening convocation, in an inspiring beginning to the new school year. I share that first-day enthusiasm, as do our administrators and Board of Education. As your new Superintendent, I know that our also new Board of Education President Lianne Merchant and her esteemed colleagues are prepared to harness the power of a fresh perspective – adding that to a passion for building on our numerous existing successes. Working together, I am confident that we can sustain that “first day” feeling for all of us as we embark on this year’s educational journey.

Preparing for the School Year

This summer, many teachers engaged in curriculum writing, continuing education and professional enrichment opportunities. I have spent the summer getting to know this wonderful district and its dedicated employees. In the past several days, we have expanded our activity by welcoming and orienting 47 new staff members (see more at www.nred.org), congratulating 25 new tenure recipients at the Tuesday, September 2 Board meeting, and beginning an in-depth analysis of the grades 3-8 state test scores, 2013-14 New Rochelle ELA and Math Results.pdf.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.
