  • Dear Parent or Guardian, 

    This letter serves as a reminder that Open House for 7th and 8th grade parents is scheduled for September 22, 2022, from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. Open House is an in-person event for parents only. You will follow your child's Day 1, Quarter 1, classes throughout the evening. 

    You will need to come to Open House with your child's complete schedule with periods and room numbers. There are several options for you to secure a copy of your child's schedule:

    • Take a picture of your child's schedule in her/his possession from your phone. 

    • Download a copy of your child's schedule from Parent Portal and print it out. 

    • Take a screenshot of your child's schedule from Parent Portal. 

    • Copy your child's schedule onto the template provided. 

    I included a template for parents to use with periods and times for the change in classes. 

    Open House is an opportunity to meet your child's team of teachers and have your questions answered. This is an exciting time to explore what your child will be learning throughout the year. 

    Before the official start of Open House at 6:30 pm, please join us from 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm in the auditorium for parents who want to meet our pupil personnel service professionals and learn more about their specific roles in the school. Our school counselors, psychologists, and social workers, play pivotal roles in the learning process that includes the social-emotional and affective needs of children. 

    The Van Wyck PTA are planning to have the Scholastic Book Fair available to parents in the cafeteria during Open House. Please stop by and peruse the wide selection of books they have on hand for purchase. 

    If you have any questions, please contact your child's school counselor or grade level assistant principal. 

    We look forward to seeing you on September 22, 2022.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Steven H. Shuchat, Principal
