Summer Reading Lists

posted Jun 12, 2015, 5:11 PM by Marcie Shaw   [ updated Jun 12, 2015, 5:57 PM ]

Summer reading lists for each grade are attached below (Kindergarten is at the bottom.) Please remember to open the list for the grade your child will be in this September, not this year's grade! 

Parents of rising 3rd - 7th graders: all rising 3rd - 7th graders have one book that is required reading this summer! You will find the title of the book at the very top of your reading list and some questions to consider are included in the document. All the other books on the list are suggested reading.

Parents of rising Kindergarten - 2nd graders and 8th graders: the books on your lists are suggested reading only. Please make sure your child reads and/or is read to this summer!

G&T Wait List Information

posted Jun 5, 2015, 4:31 PM by Marcie Shaw

If you ranked Anderson on your G&T application, then your child is already on the wait list for our school and for every other school you ranked, as well. There is nothing more for you to do.

If a seat opens at any school you ranked higher than the one in which your child was placed (or any school you ranked, if your child didn’t receive a placement) and if your child’s name is next on the list for that school, then the DOE (or the school, which is new this year) will contact you directly to offer the seat. It’s automatic and this process will be in effect until mid-October. The waitlists were ordered by the lottery and are in a computer system – they cannot be altered by anyone. Schools have not been given access to their lists yet.

If you were offered a G&T program that you prefer over your local school, go ahead and register your child there. If something opens up at another school and your child is in line for that seat, you will get called – you will not forfeit because you have registered elsewhere.

School Hours for 2014-2015 School Year

posted Aug 20, 2014, 3:20 PM by Marcie Shaw   [ updated Aug 21, 2014, 11:58 AM ]

As Ms. Hyde announced in her June 26th letter to parents, the school’s hours for all students in grades K through 8 will be 8:20 am-2:40 pm, due to the new UFT teachers’ contract. Busing will be a half hour earlier in the afternoons and Wingspan will also start right after the school day ends at 2:40 pm. So the start time is the same as it has been, but the dismissal time will be 30 minutes earlier than it used to be for grades K-5. Grades 6-8 were already dismissed at 2:40.
