THE YOUNG READERS BOOK CLUB
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. Light refreshments/drinks offered. This club is open to anyone, even if you missed the first meeting.
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.

IEYMS Counselors Prepare Students for College & Career Readiness
The Isaac E. Young Counseling Department is undertaking a new initiative this school year, designed to further support College & Career Readiness by exposing 8th grade students to college campuses and programs in the New York area. This year’s initiative compliments the IEYMS school counselor’s work with their students over the course of the three years in middle school. IEYMS students participate in a variety of activities, including classroom instruction using the College Board’s College Ed curriculum, group and individual self-reflective and academic and future planning, and college and career school events. Students will apply what they have learned throughout their middle school years with a personal experience by visiting a college campus, participating in discussions with a college admissions counselor, and strengthening their understanding of college life.
Following the American School Counseling Association’s National Model, we are committed to making awareness and readiness the norm rather than the exception for our students. Our goal is to “build a college-going culture based on early college awareness by nurturing in students the confidence to aspire to college and the resilience to overcome challenges along the way”. The first 8th grade group of IEY students will visit Manhattanville College & SUNY Purchase College on October 16, 2014. Further information regarding upcoming college visits will be made available.

Isaac’s Lemonade Stand to Fight Childhood Cancer

It is a compilation of true stories about children having risen above serious challenges to do great things for our society. On Monday, September 22, from 11:45-1:00pm, we are going to bring one of the stories to life – “Literacy for Lemonade”. The IEY 6th grade will have our “Literacy for Lemonade” sale on our ½ day this Monday, September 22, from 11:45-1:00. Student volunteers, alongside IEY teachers, will sell lemonade for 50 cents a glass by the Bridge Entrance/Exit to raise money for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to help fight childhood cancers. Please support this very worthwhile activity by allowing you child to stay after school lets out and purchasing refreshing lemonade.

New York State's $2 Billion Smart Schools Bond Act Referendum Includes $3.5 Million for New Rochelle Schools
Vote on Bond (Proposal #3) is November 4, 2014
In January 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo called for New York State to invest $2 billion in its schools through a Smart Schools Bond Act that will build out schools and classrooms for the 21st Century to ensure that students graduate with the skills they need to thrive in the economy of today and tomorrow.
Specifically, if this proposal is passed, it would provide funding to allow school districts to: 1) purchase technology equipment such as interactive whiteboards and computers; 2) install high-speed wireless internet connectivity in schools and communities; 3) construct and modernize educational facilities; and 4) install high-tech security features in school buildings and on school campuses.
Should the Smart Schools Bond Act Referendum, Proposal #3, pass on November 4, 2014, The City School District of New Rochelle will receive over $3.5 million in funding for these projects.

Please remember to vote November 4, 2014.
