I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and to welcome you and your child to George Westinghouse High School. In addition, I want to express my excitement about working with you for the new school year 2018-2019 and beyond.
As a school, one of our goals is for you to maintain a good partnership with us, and I hope you will be able to participate as much as possible. Some of the areas you can participate in are the Parent Teachers Association, School Leadership Team, Parent Advisory Council and other committees. If you are unable to take part in any of these activities here at the school, please ask another family member to represent you. In that way you will always know what is going on here at Westinghouse.
In order to stay aware of what takes place here at Westinghouse, please ensure your contact information is always current and updated. Our means of communication is through phone master messenger, email, text and via mail.
In-coming 9th grader you will receive login information for your NYC Schools Account and PupilPath, as soon as possible. Sign up for school up-dates at www.gov/notifynyc or text nycschools to 877-877 to receive text messages throughout the year.
Remember every Tuesday is Parent Engagement from 2:40 to 3:55. This is the perfect opportunity to come in and have a discussion with your child’s teachers about their progress without making an appointment. Please join us for our first PTA meeting on September 6 at 6pm.
I am looking forward to a great and productive school year. Once again, welcome. Let’s work together to give our students the best education possible. If you have any questions, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org , 718-625-6130 ext 1644 or cell 347-563-5419
Remember: Your child, Your school, Your voice.
