Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
I sincerely hope this letter finds each of you well as we prepare to close out our summer vacations. I trust that all of our students have kept up on their reading during these summer months, as they get ready for a very different, but very productive year at School of the Future Brooklyn.
Each new school year gives each of us an opportunity to reflect upon the previous year; revisiting our successes and assessing how best to address any shortcomings that we may have experienced (I have done that work for myself and it has helped me!). However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Racial Uproar in America and the financial crisis, we are in a battle none like ever before. With that in mind, and through it all, it is our ultimate expectation that all of our students take great personal responsibility and pride in ensuring their own academic success as we continue to enhance our instructional practices, while creating a culture of success that meets the needs of our students.
As educators, we are charged with the task of preparing our students to compete in this highly competitive and ever-changing society, while dually addressing their Social and Emotional experiences. We understand and believe that education remains the one key variable that can level the playing field for all our children, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status. As a product of this neighborhood, I have firsthand experience in this belief. It is for that reason that we work tirelessly in our pursuit of educating our students at a high level and accepting NO EXCUSES!!! Join us in this belief as well, as we continue to push your children in this direction.
This year, due to Covid-19, our school day for all students will begin at 8:30 am and end at 2:00 pm. All students will be dismissed at 2:00 pm on Monday through Friday. All students that are Remote are expected to be online with their teachers when they are scheduled. Attendance will be enforced. In-person learning begins September 21, 2020. However, Remote Learning will begin on September 16, 2020. We will begin to set up classes and make phone calls next week. Please make sure to update your personal information before then.
School of the Future is a uniform school. MILK is our uniform vendor. Please reach out to them at (718) 598-6621 (Kirk). All students attending school must be in uniform: beige pants (boys) black pants (girls), all black sneakers, blue polo shirt with school logo, sweatshirt/hoodie and or tee-shirt.
This year we have a few words to live by: #YOURLIVESMATTER, #RELATIONSHIPSMATTER and my favorite, #CHANGETHENARRATIVE. As we closeout the summer, and return to school, we want you to know, yourlivesmatter, relationshipsmatter and together we are going to changethenarrative on how the world sees us. Each one of us has a responsibility to be FOCUSED, SERIOUS, RESILIENT,
DISCIPLINED AND DILIGENT. Together we can make it. Set your academic goals, life goals and think about how you are going to change the world.
Lastly, all of our students are expected to memorize our school’s Creed: see attached, as they will be expected to recite our mission at the start of each school day. Our mission is as follows:
Enjoy the rest of the summer. I look forward to seeing each of you soon. Together, we will be the best middle school in Brooklyn!!
