Next Meeting: November 3, 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. 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.

Astorino's Challenge in Education (ACE)
The Astorino's Challenge in Education (ACE) is a way to encourage Westchester’s students in grades 6-12 to do their very best in the classroom from the beginning of the school year to the very end.
Success starts with a well-rounded education. To build character and good study habits, it's important that students work hard and learn all that they can each and every day they are in school. That's why the ACE Challenge rewards both excellence and effort in the classroom.
What does it take to meet the challenge?
To win the free season pass to Playland, students must achieve one of the two following benchmarks in the 2014-2015 school year:

  • Final G.P.A of 3.8, 95 percent or A average, or better.
    - or -
  • Perfect attendance for the entire school year.

The bar is high to win this challenge, because the ACE coordinators want students to strive to do their very best.

Bulletin Board to Prevent and Raise Awareness on Bullying
Thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Costa, Mr. Heyward, and the students in Mr. Heyward's Oragami after school club, we have a beautiful bulletin board dedicated to this month's efforts by the School Climate Committee to raise awareness on the very important issue of Bully Awareness and Prevention. Stop by and took a look for yourself and you will agree that it is a beautiful artful collabration by students and teachers to help address such a critical social issue in our school.
"When we all stand together, no one stands alone."

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.

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.
