The Unity Scoop at 584! Week of January 14th
Good morning, families of Unity High!
I hope that the week is treating you well despite the frigid temperatures outside. Know that we are in this together!
I’m going to jump right into it today with 6 important announcements in this week’s edition of the Scoop.
This Week’s Top 6:
Semester Finals this Coming Week! We are excited to conclude our first semester of the 2018-19 school by having our students show off all that they have learned thus far this year! In general, all students will have one exam per day in the morning or afternoon from Tuesday to Friday of this coming week. In some cases, students may have two exams on a single day over the course of the week.
Students should arrive to school at the following times depending their individual exam schedules each day:
- AM Exam: 8:30am
- PM Exam: 12:30pm
Note that students will receive individualized exam schedules today. Review review the schedule with your child and contact your child’s co-advisors and/or academic counselor with questions.
Tips for Helping Your Child Prepare for Final Exams – It is never too late to help your child in developing her/his study skills! Here is a helpful article that details how you can support your child in studying at home so that she/he is performing at her/his very best on her/his final exams. Simply browse over the article and take part in those recommendations that you feel are most important to you and your child. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s co-advisors and/or teachers directly for course-specific study tips.
Reminder! Make-up Conference Appointments – Please Schedule ASAP!– For families who were unable to attend conferences in December, please contact one of the child’s co-advisors as soon as possible to schedule a separate appointment to discuss your child’s academic progress over the first trimester of school. We expect to meet with 100% of our families so that we are best supporting our students in collaboration with families – the stronger the collaboration, the better! Contact Ms. Rivera of our main office (718-682-3725 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need contact information for your child’s co-advisors.
Reminder! Immediate Change in our Cell Phone Policy– Students have been assigned a Yondr case that they take home every day. Students are responsible for bringing the case to school each day. If they do not have their Yondr case, their cell phone will be turned in for the day and be returned during dismissal. Students are personally responsible for keeping their assigned case in good working condition. If it is discovered that a case is broken, a replacement fee of $25 will be issued to the student’s account. Contact Ms. Yun, Co-Principal, (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Reminder!Free Study Sessions for AP Students through AP for All – Families of students enrolled in AP courses, please see this list of available study sessions that your student may attend through our partnership with AP for All. Students have the opportunity to work with skilled AP teachers and college professors and to meet other AP students from throughout the city. These workshops are a great way to give your scholar a leg up on AP exams. Unity students who attended a recent study session for AP Environmental Science had a blast. Please encourage your child to sign up, and reach out to Ms. Duphiney (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any further questions!
