The Kinship Association

We meet the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm in the drama studio. All parents and guardians are encouraged to attend. In these meetings parents meet with the principal and the staff in an informal setting. It is a time to discuss issues related to student's school career and future plans. The meetings allow parents to voice their concerns, ask questions and make suggestions that will improve the school community.


Kinship Association (PTA)

The Kinship Association would like to thank all who helped make the January 21st. 9-9 Regents Tutoring Session a great success. Thank you to all the parents who paid their membership dues and made contributions toward the event. Your contributions made it possible for us to purchase and provide lunch and dinner for over 200 students and teachers. Thank you to Kinship members who gave their time to prepare and serve the food throughout the day. Specifically, Donna Cyris-Hall, Charlene Ennette, Veronica Green, Martha Williams, Yvette Lewis, Delores Ovid, Isabella Phillips, Yolande Collymore and Brenda Bland-Harrell. Finally, the Kinship would like to thank the teachers who gave their time and skills to help the students and the students who cared enough about their education to participate. THANK YOU ALL!
