Culturally Responsive Education (CRE)?

“Culturally responsive education is the ability to provide learning opportunities for our school community that will enable us to relate respectfully with people of your own culture as well as those from other cultures.  Understanding cultural diversity is important because our country, workplaces, and schools increasingly consist of various cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. We can learn from one another, but first we must have a level of understanding about each other in order to facilitate collaboration and cooperation. Learning about other cultures helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live, and helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups. In addition, cultural diversity helps us recognize and respect “ways of being” that are not necessarily our own, so that as we interact with others we can build bridges to trust, respect, and understanding across cultures. Furthermore, this diversity makes our country a more interesting place to live, as people from diverse cultures contribute language skills, new ways of thinking, new knowledge, and different experiences.”

Our Culturally Responsive Education committee will explore ways to provide culturally responsive educational opportunities.  If you are interested in volunteering to work with school personnel on any of the groups or subcommittees, please indicate it on the survey we will be sending out soon. Here are the 3 sub-committees we will be putting together. 

  • Curriculum support
  • Culturally Responsive Education Committee (CRE) learning opportunities outside of school (trips/cultural experiences)
  • School Culturally Responsive Education Committee (CRE) clubs and extra-curricular activities

Each committee will meet one afternoon per month between 2:30PM and 4:30PM  beginning in November (details to follow)

Weekly Update

We just finished our first full week of school. Hopefully everyone is getting accustomed to the switch from a Monday-Friday schedule to a 6 day cycle. I know it has been confusing but its a very smart system and allows us to provide the best possible education to all our students.

Here are calendars for the months of September & October, that will help you keep track of the 6 day cycle. Just click the month:

September
October

Dont forget Halsey’s website is www.halsey157.org

Have you taken a look at the newly designed website for the Department of Education? One page I would like to focus your attention to is the Equity and Excellence for All page that can be found here: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/about-us/vision-and-mission/equity-and-excellence. Every child deserves an excellent education and here is how we try to do it at the NYC Department of Education.

Please read this very important message from one of our ELA teachers, Ms. Tchilingarian:

Here at Halsey, it is our mission to continuously encourage and support school spirit. Last year, spirit week in September was a huge success! It was incredible seeing our staff and students coming together to help build a friendly community in our school. During Spirit Week, it was truly wonderful experiencing such positive and lively energy spreading all through our hallways and right into our classrooms.

This year, we want to make sure that energy continues to flourish; not only for one week, but throughout the entire year. Therefore, Halsey will be hosting not a Spirit Week, but Spirit YEAR! Each month, we will have two spirit days, allowing our school to spread school spirit in various, fun, and exciting ways.

In order to make our efforts successful, we would like to put together a Spirit Team. Halsey’s Spirit Team will work closely to spread school spirit, not only amongst our students, but amongst all families, teachers and staff as well. We will meet once a month to discuss new ideas for each month and ways to improve school spirit here at Halsey.

If you are interested in joining Halsey’s Spirit Team and/or have questions, please reach out to Sonia Tchilingarian at STchilingarian@schools.nyc.gov

Thank you!

Ms. Shriki and Mr. Blanco will  hosted 2 workshops on the High School Application process and the new SHSAT registration process so far.

Weekly Update

John Lennon Educational Tour Bus

Halsey JHS 157 was lucky enough to be selected to participate in the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus once again this year. Thanks to Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, our Principal Mr. Suraci, and the great relationship we have built with the Lennon Bus, select students from Chorus, Band, and Art got to board the bus and have an amazing experience. Here is some more information about the John Lennon Bus:

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus presented by OWC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) state-of-the-art mobile audio and HD video recording and production facility. In its 21st year, with the very newest technology and gear, the Bus continues to be dedicated to providing young people with tours of the studios, participation in free digital media production workshops, and the production of giant peace signs. Assisted by three on-board engineers, students can learn how to write, record, and produce original songs, music videos, documentaries, and live multi-camera video productions – all in one day!

The Lennon Bus is highly adaptable, designed to provide students, their schools and communities with performances, hands-on demonstrations, remote recordings, and studio sessions customized for their needs, levels of experience and interest. The Bus travels the country visiting schools, music and technology conferences and events, and partners with communities and media outlets to call attention to the importance of arts and digital media education.

Students from the 8th Grade Talent Classes formed the Peace symbol in the school yard as the John Lennon Bus sat outside our gates. All they were saying was give peace a chance.

 

The Green Team’s veterans met this past Sunday and got right down to business.  Our Spring plantings grew beautifully this Summer; the consistent watering provided by the custodial staff was instrumental for their good health.  Unfortunately, the weeds were just as healthy.

The Green Team weeded and added 2 dozen bags of cedar mulch to our front planting beds.  They look clean and refreshed!  Then the students turned their attention to the garden.  It was a major undertaking.  After several hours of hard work, we produced 18 large, garbage bags of weeds!

This week we will meet with students who want to join the Green Team, begin our Fall t-shirt sale fundraiser and (weather permitting) install a drip irrigation system for the front planting beds around the main entrance to our school.

The Green Team has big plans for this school year, including but not exclusive to: continued planting in the garden and front display beds, increased utilization of the green house, field trips and even experimenting with hydroponics.

If you are interested in joining the Green Team please contact Mr. Weiss at CWeiss6@schools.nyc.gov or see him in the SAVE Room in the basement.

State Test Scores? What’s the Deal?

We have all been wondering what the deal is with our State Test scores from last school year. This is the last piece of information I have seen regarding the delay:

Back to School Night = SUCCESS!

What a great turnout we had for our Back to School Night. Not only did hundreds of families come down and meet their teachers but we also had over 100 parents attend the workshops we offered at 4:30 pm – just before our back to school activities. Do not worry that you missed a workshop. We will be offering them again later in the school year. The PTA sold Spirit Wear, snacks, and candy and kicked off their fund raising on a great note.  The evening ended with a special workshop for families of 8th and 9th graders facilitated by Ms. Shriki and Mr. Plummer on the new High School Application process and the new SHSAT registration process.

Do not worry if you missed the workshop on the High School Application process! Ms. Shriki, along with Mr. Blanco, will be facilitating 4 more workshops in the coming weeks.

What is a School Leadership Team?

The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies.

SLTs:

  • Provide ongoing evaluations of a school’s educational programs and their impact on student achievement.
  • Play an important role in school-based decision-making
  • Help to make school cultures more collaborative.

Who are the SLT members?

There are three members of the school community who must be members of the SLT:

  1. Principal
  2. Parent Association/Parent-Teacher Association President
  3. United Federation of Teachers Chapter Leader

The other members are elected parents and staff members. The SLT must have an equal number of parents and staff.

 

What is the role of an SLT?

  • An SLT is responsible for developing a school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP).
  • An SLT makes a yearly evaluation of the principal’s record of developing an effective, shared decision-making relationship with the SLT members during the year. This evaluation is given to the community district or high school superintendent.
  • The SLT is not responsible for the hiring or firing of school staff. However, according to Chancellor’s Regulation C-30, the SLT must be consulted prior to the appointment of a principal or assistant principal.
