Information You Should Know

Dear Parents & Guardians,
For the safety and well-being of your child it is imperative
that we
have accurate biographical and emergency contact
information on
file for both you and your child. 
All changes of address, phone numbers,
 cell phone numbers,
guardianship and emergency contact persons must
be reported
to your child’s guidance counselor. 
According to the
Chancellor’s Regulations, all changes of
address must be accompanied by a gas, electrical, or water bill. 
 A mortgage statement is acceptable as well.  If you rent and do not
pay utilities, a notarized letter from your landlord is required.  
Additionally, change of guardianship requires a notarized form which
is available at our school.

Posted on Monday, March 10, 2014 by Elert for AwardsNYCSEF.

13 Midwood Science Research students were declared finalists in the 2014 

New York City Science and Engineering Fair (NYCSEF). NYCSEF is the

New York City Department of Education’s annual science and

technology research competition, coordinated by the City University of New York

 (CUNY). More than 700 students from around the city submitted applications to

the 2013 NYCSEF. On Sunday, March 2, the qualifying students from high schools

across the city met at City College to display their scientific research for the Preliminary Round.

Only the top 100 projects (approximately) are invited to attend the finals round.

These students are the best of the best. Wish them good luck at the finals on
