• AFSE Weekly Family & Students Priorities: 12/11 - 12/15
    In order to provide families with enough time to prepare for the week ahead, we will be sending the weekly email on Sunday evening. You will receive an email with important information and action items for the week. Please review and be sure to complete the action steps by the deadline to stay current with AFSE announcements.

    Action Item #1 (Grades 9 & 11): iMentor Event - Tuesday, Dec 12. Remind your student to attend this week's iMentor event on Tuesday, December 12, at 5:30 PM. Event attendance is a vital part of your student's preparation for college, so please ensure your student RSVPs and arrives on time.  

    Action Item #2 Lower Academy (Grades 9 & 10): #GivingDecember at AFSE! All lower academy advisories are collecting items that will be donated at the end of the month. All donations brought in by students should be dropped off in the bins located in the main office (Room 422). Each advisory is collecting specific items to be donated - please look at the flyer below for donation items accepted, grouped by advisory.
    Thank you for supporting AFSE's #GivingDecember!

    #GivingDecember - Donated Items by Advisory

    Action Item #3: Regents Invitations & Add/Drop Requests Students received their January Regents invitations last week and we are asking that they submit add/drop requests by Friday, December 15th. Students can make their add/drop requests to their advisors who will submit a form on their behalf. 


    Follow-Up of Alleged Incident: Our staff has been providing great support this week to our students.  We held a number of group circles in advisory and classes to engage in important conversation.  We will continue to provide support for our students in and out of the classroom.  Should students need to speak with someone for emotional support, our school counselors, Mrs. Zeitlin-Mellor and Mr. Nunez, are available in Room 422; and our Social Worker, Ms. Eagan, is available in Room 424-1. Students can also speak with administration.  We are also implementing a same-gender buddy system for bathroom trips.  Pairs are chosen at the teacher's discretion.  Additionally, please remind your students that the only spaces that they should be in the morning before the start of school is supervised in the dining hall for breakfast or a classroom for morning tutoring.  Students are not permitted to loiter in stairwells or hallways unsupervised, and should not enter the building before 8:00 AM or remain in the building after 3:20 PM unless in a supervised after school activity.  

    Keep In Mind (Review Only): Academic Support is available for students on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, before or after school. Please see the link below for the full schedule. Students should still confirm tutoring session with individual teachers when they plan on attending, especially morning sessions.
