Message from Superintendent Vivian Orlen:
It is my great pleasure to announce Ms. Yeou-Jey Vasconcelos as your Appointed Principal effective, October 24, 2019. Over the past 3 months, Ms. Vasconcelos has worked very hard to listen, learn and act on behalf of students, teachers and families. This past Monday I met with the C-30 committee to finalize the last step in the process. The voices of teachers, students and parents echoed just some of these qualities: open, strong communicator, great listener, responsive, inclusive, understands the mission and vision of our school community, has built trust and “actually likes teenagers”.
Your new principal cannot make the school better alone, she needs each of you to share your ideas, your expertise and hopes for Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in order to ensure that the school continues to nurture the artistic passions and intellectual curiosities of New York City students.
I have appreciated getting to know many of you over the past few months in my role as your Superintendent and will continue to stay close to the school as you move forward as more unified community.
