The Graded Mentoring and Tutoring Program: ATTENTION 10th, 11th and 12th Graders! Do you appreciate opportunities to be a respected mentor and tutor for younger kids? Do you think you can help young students feel more comfortable with their school work? Teach them about organization and what it means to be responsible while helping them with their school work? Join the Graded Mentoring and Tutoring Program! You would meet with one or more students, between 3rd and 8th grade, and help them with their school work as well as mentor them. This would count for your CAS activities and is something you could mention in your college applications.
If you are interested please contact Keren Soriano or Nick Mariani (supervisors for the GMT project) or Sammi Gistren, Paula Schulman, Fernanda Fiszner (12th Grade students).

REMINDER OF THE WEEK
APPROPRIATE DRESS
Students must wear clothing appropriate for a school setting. Inappropriate apparel such as very short shorts (the length of shorts should not be above the tip of the thumb with arms extended at the sides), strapless or backless shirts, visible undergarments or T-shirts with provocative or inappropriate language or symbols (including but not limited to: curse words, sexual insinuations, offensive or racist words, and alcohol/drugs themes) are not tolerated.  Infractions will result in minor consequences that include the turning of a shirt inside-out, or, if a teacher or the Assistant Principal requires it, a lab coat or a Graded jersey will be used as a cover-up. Teachers may also ask that the Assistant Principal or counselors address infractions. Repeated infractions will result in a Behavior Agreement and a meeting with parents. Hats are not permitted in the auditorium. If a teacher requests that a student remove his hat in a classroom, the student must comply.
