SUMMER BRIDGE

UAMA LANGUAGE AND THINKING

REGISTRATION

This summer we are very excited to be offering a 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 16 to August 15, 2017. Breakfast and lunch will be provided (Students are not allowed to leave school for lunch).

 

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 2018. 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 16th. 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 8/16/18 @ 8:30 am.

The Parent Surveys are Back


Posted By on Feb 28, 2018

NYC Parent Survey’s 

Every year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. The 2017-2018 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools and collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

 

Parent Surveys are due by March 23, 2018. Therefore, during Parent Teacher Conference on March 8th & 9th 2018, we will have a room set up for you to complete your survey.

Please feel free to contact me if you have and questions or concerns regarding Parent Teacher Conferences or Parent Surveys at 718-858-0249 ext 8051 or zayas1@uamusicandart.org

Thank you,

Cecily Zayas

What we saw…

In Ellis Island there was a lot of interesting things. Ellis Island showed me that the baggage’s that they had carried are a lot different from what we carry now. There was a good amount of little children that was working like big adults to help their parents.

– Jada Bonner, Section 1

The trip to liberty island was truly amazing I got to experience taking a picture and seeing an ancient statue that was over 100 years old. On Ellis island it was such an eye opening experience to walk on the same grounds that many immigrants have fought to stand on. It showed me that I need to be appreciative and grateful for everything I have today and we got to travel the same way that people many ages ago did. It was so amazing to see where apart of history took place.

– Maisea Neverson, Section 3

The Statue of Liberty was built by a former civil war general Charles P. Stones. The statue skin is made of copper, the reason they picked copper is because when it’s exposed to oxygen in the air it undergoes a chemical reaction called oxidation.
– Abdulrahman Aldailam, Section 1

The statue of liberty was built by France and was a gift to the United States. The statue was assembled on Bedloe’s Island on October 28 1886. In 1924 the Statue of Liberty was declared a National monument. In 1956 Bedloe’s was renamed Liberty Island.
– Nazir Reid, Section 1
