Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year
Hello City Poly Community!
We are so excited for the new school year and are working hard to ensure that we are ready for a great start. While we definitely feel refreshed and recharged, this summer has been busy! City Poly staff used the summer to plan for additional student supports, work on curriculum, conduct home visits for incoming freshmen, reflect on our culture, and create our goals for the year. Staff attended professional learning sessions on restorative justice, supporting students with IEPs, The Early College Initiative and many more. We have hired four new staff members including a computer science teacher who will be launching City Poly’s first computer science course.
I will follow up with the details of our summer work and plans for the year in the weeks ahead. The purpose of this letter is to help create a smooth and easy transition for the beginning of the school year. Please use the attached chart to guide you on the first days.
Finally, I have received inquires about school supplies. I recommend you to get general supplies (notebooks, pens and paper), but hold off on the specialty items until after the first days of school when students will have received the course syllabus.
Welcome back to school-year 2018-2019! To educate your child is a joy and honor for us. There is no better work in the world. See you all soon!
