Events Listing Nov 6 – 12

Dear TU Community,

At the end of this week we reach the half-way point for marking period 2, a time for all of us to reflect upon areas of continued and further growth, and exciting opportunities ahead.

On Tuesday, all NYC schools will be closed to students. While visitors arrive to school buildings to exercise their democratic right to vote, faculty and staff will collaborate on school-wide, district-wide, and city-wide goals.

On Thursday mid-day, all juniors and seniors will attend a College Now Information Session from a representative from Hunter College. TU students have the benefit of attending one of the most prestigious institutions of higher-learning in the world while still in high school just two blocks east of TU. Remember that we also partner with all 17 CUNY CollegeNow campuses.

On Friday morning, all students will participate in Career Day. Generous friends and families of TU, from both arts and non-arts industries, are taking time out of their busy professional life to speak to students. This day will be especially meaningful as a supplement to our ongoing college and career readiness and social-emotional learning initiative.

On Friday afternoon, we welcome parents/guardians to the second Parent Teacher Conference of the year. Upon arrival, please sign up for appointment times with each of your child’s teachers. To accommodate all families, conference appointments are 3 minutes long. If you require more time, make arrangements with the teacher to continue the conversation at a later time. If you are unable to attend Friday, reach out to your child’s teachers to communicate regarding your child’s progress. Remember that families are encouraged to check-in with teachers throughout the year.
