Message from the Principal
August 30th, 2016
Dear High School Students and Parents:
Welcome to the start of the 2016-2017 school year! I hope that this summer has been restful and that you are prepared for the challenges of the upcoming academic year. Over the past two months we have been busy hiring new staff, updating curriculum and working to prepare our building and fields for the arrival of students. We are excited to welcome you back to a new school year filled with opportunities.
This year we will be implementing a new integrated co-teaching model to provide instructional support in the core academic areas. Teams of teachers will be engaging in high quality professional development throughout the year to deliver instruction designed to help all learners achieve at the highest levels. In addition, we will be introducing a new curriculum for our advisory program, with an increased emphasis on monitoring academic progress. Students will also see increased elective opportunities during the 2016-2017 school year. English 12 has been replaced with a series of courses including; Writing & Research, Issues & Controversies, The Hero’s Journey and Facing History. The culinary arts program has been expanded to include a basic food preparation course as a pre-requisite to our college-level Culinary Arts I and II courses. Finally, we have added an Introduction to Coding class in order to help students prepare for the technological needs of both college and career in the 21st century.
Additionally, we welcomed the following new faculty members to Hampton Bays High School:
Ms. Jennifer Spota, School Library Media Specialist
Ms. Brittney Richter, Special Education
Mr. Vincent Russo, Special Education
Mrs. Jennifer DeStefano, Special Education
Ms. Simone Martel, French
Ms. Lindsay Emmette, Social Studies
Ms. Cassandra Scofield, Mathematics Teaching Assistant
Mr. Felipe Perez, Social Studies
These professionals bring skills, instructional experience and energy that will only help to improve student outcomes on our fields, in our co-curricular programs and most certainly, in the classroom.
With the start of a new year, I hope that all students take advantage of the opportunities presented to them at Hampton Bays High School. During the 2016-2017 school year, we will offer more than twenty athletic teams and more than twenty co-curricular clubs and activities for students to showcase and develop their distinctive talents. From Science Club to the Future Business Leaders of America, there is literally something for everyone.
Enclosed you will find important information regarding the opening of school. Please review these documents carefully with your child. Our first day of classes is Tuesday, September 6th. Please remember that school begins at 7:30 am. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main office at (631)723-2110.
I hope that you enjoy the remaining days of summer and wish you success this school year.
