9-12 High School
Greetings students and families,
This week at Tapestry High School, our guidance counselors began meeting with students regarding their schedules for next year. We are proud to offer exciting new elective courses that provide our students with opportunities to engage in meaningful and rigorous course work. As partners, we must work together to encourage our students to select courses that are connected to their interests and will better prepare them for college and career. For it is our vision that Tapestry is a vibrant, sustainable school that empowers learners and leaders to make a positive impact in our communities and beyond. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our high school guidance office for more information.
By the end of next week, you should also expect to receive your child’s trimester 2 report card. As we begin trimester 3, please encourage your child to put forth the effort necessary to earn course credits and prepare for Regents exams.
We have several events happening at Tapestry High School this week:
Monday, March 20th - We will be hosting intervention student led conferences (SLC’s). This is an important Tapestry structure and we appreciate your support and attendance with this process. The families of students needing an SLC have been notified. We look forward to seeing you.
Tuesday March 21, 5:30 - 6:30 - we will be hosting our English Language Learners Family Night in the High School Cafeteria. Representatives from Jericho Road Health Services, Journey’s End Refugee Services and Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara will be present. Our students who are English Language Learners will complete their intervention SLCs on this night.
Friday March 24, 5-8 pm - K-12 Spaghetti Dinner, Basket Raffle and Art Sale. For this event, each crew has been asked to help put together a basket for the basket raffle, please check with your student about what he or she needs for this project. The crew that donates the most items will get a dress down day. Funds raised will go towards travel programs, like our trip to Italy that is heading abroad in April. Tickets are $8 and $4 for children under 5. Please see our school website for more specific information about this special event. We hope to see you there!
Thank you for your active participation in your child’s education and for supporting the Tapestry community.
