From Kathy Ringrose:

Dear Quest Family:

I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful summer!  The first day of school is Thursday, September 8.

Our doors open at 7:45 AM for student to have breakfast in the Cafeteria. Our school day starts at 8:05 AM and ends at 2:25 PM..   On the first day of school, 6th grade students will go to the auditorium first, their teacher will pick them up and take them to their class.  The 9th grade students will go to the 7th floor Girl’s Gym. Teachers will meet the 9th graders in the gym and take them to their class.  Students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades, already have their program will go to their class on the 5th floor.  Any High School students that do not have their program should go to the Cafeteria on the 6th floor.

The first day of school, Parents are invited for morning coffee in the school’s Auditorium, (after the 6th grade students go to their class). Quest to Learn’s Principal, Nicholas Jurman, along with Assistant Principals, Timothy Jones and Danielle Lasher, will stop in to say a quick hello.   Our PTA would also like to use this morning Meet & Greet time to speak to the parents too.  They have a couple of open positions on the PTA.  Anyone interested in Co-Vice President or Co-Vice Treasurer positions please come to this morning meeting in the auditorium.  Lucia Rutter from Manhattan Youth’s Middle Afterschool program, along with Hudson Guild and Representatives from YMCA, will also join us for coffee.
