Back to School information

Good morning, Parents, Students and Families,

We are very excited to welcome our children back to school on Thursday morning, with classes beginning at 8:25AM. Attached is our Back to School letter with details necessary for supporting your child this year, in addition to the suggested supplies list.

Please note that due to varying student academic needs, schedules are still being refined. We will have them available Thursday morning by the flagpole.

Lastly, we apologize if you are receiving this email and are not continuing at Queens Collegiate. To our rising 9th graders, we are aware that you are transferring but have not yet updated this information in JupiterGrades. If you are in another grade and DO NOT plan to return to Queens Collegiate, please email Ms. Robinson (msrobinson@queenscollegiate.org) and let her know your child’s name, birth date, a phone number to contact you, and where you have moved to or the private school that your child will be attending.

Parents, please make a point to attend our Open School Evening & PTA meeting on September 16. All teachers and counselors will be present, so you can meet your child’s mentor and teachers.

Looking forward to another great year with you.  

Jaime Dubei, Principal

NYC Citizenship in the Schools

On September 20, 2012, during Constitution and Citizenship Week, Mayor Bloomberg together with Chancellor Walcott announced the launch of NYCitizenship in Schools.  A new citywide program that offers free immigration information, assistance and financing options to eligible parents of students in the city’s public schools seeking to begin the application process to become U.S. citizens.

 By helping the parents in our school communities naturalize, their children may derive citizenship at no additional cost if they are under the age of 18 and meet certain requirements. As you may know, for students that become U.S. Citizens, there are additional opportunities for scholarships, financial aid, and student loans as they apply for college. There is also a microloan opportunity with free financial counseling available to help parents who cannot afford the $680 United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) filing fee or who do not qualify for the fee waiver.

On Saturday, December 15th 2012 the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs will host a service event at the Newcomers High School at 2801 41st Avenue, Queens, NY 11101, for parents eligible to naturalize.

Storm Preparation

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we prepare for the storms of Hurricane Sandy to come over our area, I would encourage you to listen to NYC.gov, 1010 WINS or other forums where you get information from the City government.

Queens Collegiate is a NYC public school, and as such will follow all directives by the Mayor and/or Chancellor. If they select to open schools on Monday, we will be open. If they select to close schools, we will close.

Please listen to one of the many outlets for information from NYC Government (1010 WINS, nyc.gov, major news stations, etc.) If you have questions, please call 311 for assistance.

All the best,

Ms. Dubei
