Summer Bridge 2019 – 20


Posted By on May 31, 2019

This summer we are very excited to be offering our annual Summer Bridge Language & Thinking program at UAMA. The program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. from Monday through Thursday from July 8th to August 8th, 2019. Breakfast and lunch will be provided (Students are not allowed to leave school for lunch). The registration form can be found below.

The Summer Program is designed to provide you with an opportunity to improve your academic skills in Literacy, Writing, Critical Thinking, and to earn high school credit before you begin in the fall of 2019. Research shows that surpassing 11 credits by the end of 9th grade is an important target to meet for high school success and on-time graduation, as well as to be better prepared for college. This program will also help you take advantage of our Early College model which you can start as early as 10th grade, allowing you to register for classes that confer both High School and College credit. The goal of this program is not only to develop your academic skills but also to have fun learning, build relationships, and help you successfully transition into high school.

Students will have the opportunity to earn Elective Credit over the summer as they sharpen their reading, writing, and argumentation skills in English and practice and prepare for the Algebra Regents and ELA Exams on August 13th. At UAMA all students are expected to take the ELA and Math Regents exams starting in the first year and to keep taking the exam until they reach New York  State College Readiness Standards.

SUMMER BRIDGE REGISTRATION FORM

Space is limited and students who attend the May 31st Welcome and Orientation will be given seating priority.

All incoming 9th graders are eligible to take both the ELA & Algebra 1 August Regents on Thursday 8/13/18 @ 8:30 am.

Dear Urban Assembly School of Music and Art,

The safety and well-being of our students and staff members remain our highest priority. Toward that end, we are notifying you that this morning, we were informed of a potential threat to our school on social media.

NYPD was immediately contacted and is actively investigating the report. In the interim, we have been assured that there is no immediate threat to students, faculty or staff at our school. We therefore are proceeding with a regular day of instruction.

As part of our safety efforts, we have increased supports including additional school safety agents and NYPD presence on campus. Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to ensure that our school continues to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for all of our students. It is important that we remain vigilant, and if we see something, say something.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school at (718) 858-0249.

Best,
Paul J. Thompson
Principal
Urban Assembly School for Music and Art
