  • Upcoming Parent Meetings: THIS Wednesday, October 21st

    Dear Parents,

    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.

  • First Day of School

    Dear Bronx Design Students,

     

    Welcome to the first instructional day of the new school year!

    Please be sure to check your email throughout the day. If you need a schedule because you are unable to find the one that was sent to you on 9/18 or you believe you did not receive one, please complete the Request a Schedule google form. Be sure to use the Bell Schedule to ensure you log into your remote classes on time. Synchronous portion of the class will take place during the first 15 minutes of class. 

     

    Any questions pertaining to your schedule should be sent to the guidance counselors:

    9th Grade: Ms. Paez (mpaez@bxdesign.org)

    10th & 11th Grade: Ms. Prindle (kprindle@bxdesign.org)

    12th Grade: Mr. Hicks (fhicks@bxdesign.org)

     

    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
