    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Parents of 8th grade students, did you know your child has the opportunity to earn High School credit?  This year every 8th grade student in the NFCSD is being challenged with passing the New York State Regents exams in both Algebra and Living Environment.  In years past, this was only a possibility for accelerated students and now it is for all 8th graders.  In addition to the two Regents exams and regents level courses, accelerated 8th graders can earn Social Studies credit and a Spanish credit, for a total of four High School Credits.  Gaskill students should be leaving us at the end of their 8th grade year with at least two of the required twenty-two credits to graduate and two of the five NYS regents exams completed.  Please help us reinforce the importance of keeping up with the rigor of Regents level courses and most importantly getting your child here every day!

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Zimmerman, Principal
