Stay Tuned! One of LaGuardia’s alumni just received an American Idol yellow ticket, which advances him to the televised show. Best of luck to Qaasim Middleton, Vocal Major from the class of 2013.
The Academic Forum’s College Series presentation on college financing and financial aid with Michael Terry of Michael Terry Planning, LLC, a financial planning and registered investment advisory firm, proved extremely popular and informative. Due to time constraints, he could not answer all of the many questions posed by parents. If you would like more information, please email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up for his newsletter. You can also check out his website at www.mtpadvisors.com
The next Academic Forum meeting will be on November 19th with Dr. Mark Stricklin, who will present a more detailed look at the guidance suite.
BUILDING A MATH LIBRARY – BRICK BY BRICK, OR BOOK BY BOOK
Ms. Fischer has posted a new DonorsChoose project to launch a NEW Math library – with an amazing selection of books connecting Math with Art and Music. She would like her classes and all students at LaGuardia to have the opportunity to learn about Ada Lovelace, Paul Erdos, Hypatia, Brahmagupta, Evariste Galois, Archimedes and so many others. As many Art majors take Illustration, math-centric children’s books are included in the wish list, in order to inspire original books and illustrations about Math.
Please help launch this great library initiative! The goal is to eventually offer books connecting Math to all LaGuardia Arts Studios. For TWO DAYS only, you can DOUBLE YOUR DONATION when you type SPARK into the box marked “promo or gift code” and hit ‘Apply’.Please click here to donate. Thank you!
We try to reach as many LaGuardia parents as possible. If you know a parent who isn’t receiving these emails, please have them sign up by clicking here or going to www.laguardiahs.org/emailsignup
Fill out all of the information needed and make sure you click the “LaGuardia Families” list. Make sure you complete the form by entering the studio and graduation year of the student or you will NOT get emails from your studio or for your student’s specific year – for example, college news for seniors.
