During the week of December 14th, we will host 4 virtual Open Houses:
This is a great opportunity for 8th graders and their parents to learn more about Bronx Design, hear from our staff members, view a virtual walkthrough of our school, and have any questions answered.
Marking Period 1 Grades are available online via NYC Schools account and report cards have been mailed out.
Any student who earned an NX means that they did not meet the course requirements. It is not too late to improve on the grades. Students who earned an NX for the first marking period will need to work very hard during Marking Period 2 and 3 to ensure a passing grade for the term (semester), which ends on January 29, 2021.
If you have any questions about a grade, please contact your child's teachers via email. You will find email addresses by visiting the Faculty and Staff Directory.
Our guidance counselors and Single Shepherds are also available to assist families in providing academic support.
We've observed the attendance data, and our "Remote Only" Learning Preference requests have increased significantly since September. As such, I would like to introduce a new model that I think would benefit our hybrid students. During the meetings on Wednesday, October 21st at 5:00 PM and at 6:00 PM, I will present Blended Learning Model 1B, along with an exception that will help support student achievement by offering targeted academic support.
Please join either the SLT meeting at 5:00 PM or the Parent Association Meeting at 6:00 PM if you are available to attend. Links to join the meeting can be found on the calendar.
Just a reminder: The school will be closed next Monday. There will not be any online instruction taking place. Students should use the time to catch up on any missing assignments. School will resume on Tuesday, October 13 (B-DAY).
Bronx Design Parents,
Please read an important message from the DOE Chancellor regarding School-based COVID Testing.
Consent forms will be distributed to students beginning on Thursday, October 1st.
Dear Bronx Design Students,

Also, your teachers will continue to invite you to google classrooms. Please be sure to accept the invitation. A list of google classroom codes will be available at the end of the week, and posted on the 2020-2021 page.
Lastly, all students were invited into an Attendance Google Classroom ["SY 20 Daily Attendance: Remote" OR "SY 20 Daily Attendance: Hybrid"]. Please be sure to mark your attendance daily. Your attendance will be verified by your teachers, who will confirm whether or not you attended the synchronous portion of their classes. Try your best to start the school year STRONG!
