Welcome to the Spring Term!

Welcome back students and staff from Winter Recess! We trust that you had an enjoyable break and that you have returned to school refreshed, relaxed, renewed, re-energized and ready to go! Students, we want you to focus on having a strong spring semester by making sure that you are attending every one of your classes. Arrive to school in time for your first period class every day and make sure that you are on time to every period throughout the day. Make sure that you arrange to meet with the teachers of any of your classes where you might need a little extra help. Some of our teachers make it a point to work with their students at least one day a week during 5th period. Also, we have after school ELA Regents prep classes taught by Ms Popo and Ms Gammon, and Mr. Houston teaches an ENL Enrichment class. Just go to room 410 on Wednesdays. Then, Mrs. Jordan-Hall and Ms Barre offer after school help in math on Thursdays. Just go to room 433! Additionally, there might still be a slot or two open if you want to learn how to swim. Mr. Wolf if teaching a swimming class every Thursday during the spring semester. Just ask Mr. Wolf, Ms Baptiste or Mr. Knox about the class.

Remember, at AEL, we encourage you to take responsibility for your own learning by becoming more self-reliant and resilient learners. Our mission is to equip you to become leaders in excellence in order to prepare you for success in college and in your career endeavors. However, it is all starts with you making the right choices one decision at a time!

Welcome Parents to AEL

Tonight, the Academy for Environmental Leadership (AEL) proudly welcomes our parents and families to meet their child's teachers, Guidance Counselor, and our Parent Coordinator, along with other essential staff members, during Parent Teacher Night. We look forward to this opportunity every fall because it give us the chance to discuss how your child is progressing in school and also to learn from you how we can serve you and your child better. We will start to welcome families as early at 5:00 PM. Our evening ends at 8:00 PM. However, if you are unable to visit us tonight, you are welcome to visit us tomorrow, from 12:30 - 2:30 PM, for Parent Teacher Afternoon. We are located on the 4th floor of the Bushwick High School Campus.


While you are visiting us, we encourage you to take a look at the student work that we have posted on the bulletin boards of our hallways and within our classrooms. We are very pleased with the work that our teachers do with your children, and we always look for opportunities to brag about our young environmental leaders. Also, please feel free to stop by my office (room 421B) to say hello or the offices of our assistant principals. Mrs. Katz's office is in room 403 and Mr. Newville's office is room 423.


Please know I appreciate each and every one of our parents. Your willingness to partner with us as we do this very important work of educating your children is priceless. You are your child's first teacher and we simply could not do this without you.


I look forward to seeing you this evening or tomorrow afternoon!


All my best,

Mrs. Blissett
