Announcement from Dr. Bongo

February 28, 2019

Dear Isaac E. Young Community,

I am writing to you all with both great excitement and some sadness.

I have accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Pupil Personnel and Special Services for our City School District of New Rochelle. I will assume this new role within the next few weeks and will move to the District’s main offices on North Avenue.

Over the past 20 years at IEYMS, I have built many wonderful relationships and have amassed countless experiences that have enriched my life beyond measure. I will always consider myself part of the IEYMS family.

In my new role, I will continue to devote myself to nurturing and supporting students not only here at IEYMS, but throughout all of the public schools in our great city.

At the same time, I am very excited that Dr. Tawanda Robinson will immediately become the interim Principal here at IEYMS. I have worked alongside Dr. Robinson my entire time at IEYMS and she has been a mentor, colleague, and friend. I know of no one better for this position.

Over the coming weeks, I will speak with students and staff about these changes, and I will ensure that we make this transition without a hitch. I will always be available if you have any questions.

This is not an ending, but a new beginning for all of us.

Dr. Anthony Bongo


Querido Isaac E. Young Community,
Les escribo a todos con gran emoción y algo de tristeza.
He aceptado el puesto de Asistente del Superintendente de Personal Estudiantil y Servicios Especiales para
nuestro Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de New Rochelle. Asumiré este nuevo rol dentro de las próximas
semanas y me trasladaré a las oficinas principales del Distrito en North Avenue.
Durante los últimos 20 años en IEYMS, he construido muchas relaciones maravillosas y he acumulado
innumerables experiencias que han enriquecido mi vida más allá de toda medida. Siempre me consideraré
parte de la familia IEYMS.
En mi nuevo rol, continuaré dedicándome a educar y apoyar a los estudiantes no solo aquí en IEYMS, sino
en todas las escuelas públicas de nuestra gran ciudad.
Al mismo tiempo, estoy muy emocionado de que la Dra. Tawanda Robinson se convierta inmediatamente en
la Directora interina aquí en IEYMS. He trabajado junto al Dr. Robinson todo el tiempo en IEYMS y ella ha
sido mentora, colega y amiga. No conozco a nadie mejor para esta posición.
Durante las próximas semanas, hablaré con los estudiantes y el personal acerca de estos cambios, y me
aseguraré de que hagamos esta transición sin ningún problema. Siempre estaré disponible si tiene alguna
Esto no es un final, sino un nuevo comienzo para todos nosotros.

Attendance Recognition

Congratulations to all our students who had perfect attendance for the month of November during the first marking period. Certificates were handed out to students during homeroom on Friday, December 7th, 2018. School attendance is mandatory and is critical to student success. Students are expected to be in school every day and on time. Please contact your child's school counselor or the the attendance teacher, should you require assistance. 

School Counseling Department

Middle school is an exciting yet challenging time for students, their parents and teachers. According to the American School Counselor Association, during this transition from childhood to adolescence, middle school students are characterized by a need to explore a variety of interests, connecting their learning in the classroom to its practical application in life and work; high levels of activity coupled with frequent fatigue due to rapid growth. During the middle years, adolescents are searching for their own identity as they begin to grow more mature.  At Isaac E. Young, the school counselors support students and families in the areas of academics, career and college readiness and social emotional development.  School counselors are here as a resource for students.  Please contact the school counseling office should you need assistance
