Parent Involvement Is What Matters

July 25, 2019 | BY Claudia Esteva-Director of College & Career Readiness (Long Island City High School)

On Monday, June 17, incoming freshmen and their families joined the LICHS staff in the academies for Wellness Education and Humanities and Urban Culture to learn more about the school and get a head start to the next four years of their academic lives. Families were greeted by Assistant Principal Argyris and then escorted to their corresponding academy. Once they received their info packets and beautiful LICHS swag, families were able to grab some treats and chat with the Parent Coordinators before learning about LICHS’ Summer Bridge Program.

Summer Bridge is a six-week academic program for incoming 9th grade students who want to stay active over the summer and earn three elective credits in English, math and science. This program allows students to become comfortable in a larger school environment before the year officially starts in September. By meeting other classmates, engaging with the rigorous curriculum, and getting to know teachers’ expectations along with touring the school, students feel increasingly comfortable with being in high school. Summer Bridge students receive breakfast, lunch, snacks, have weekly raffles to promote attendance, and attend field trips. The Zone 126 table was a very popular spot Monday evening for both students and their parents.
