Welcome Back for the 2014-2015 School Year!
On behalf of the staff at The Urban Assembly School For Wildlife Conservation, I am happy to welcome you to the 2014-15 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
Please consider joining our Parent Teacher Association or School Leadership Team as our
students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program
and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:
1) School-wide events
2) Student recognition events
3) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers
I Look forward to meeting and greeting each of you on September 04th, 2014 at 8:30 AM .

FAMILY COLLEGE TRIP to Manhattanville College
WE recently took high school students and members of their families on a college trip to Manhattanville College. Families toured, met with admissions and financial aid departments, and enjoyed lunch with the college students after touring the dorms. Victoria Vasquez said she may have found her school after the visit – it’s small, supportive, and not too far away but outside NYC.

RECYCLE and REUSE: Armed with Vivid Imaginations and Hot Glue Guns HS students transform trash into Art!
This is our plastic bag project. We were inspired by local artist, Beth Garrett who visited us and helped us begin the sculpture. We first collect plastic shopping bags and bottles and researched about the impact of plastic bags and our environment. Beth visited us and helped us create the armature and begin apply plastic bags to create bulk. The students hot glued the plastic bags until they achieved the desired bulk and form of the animal head they wanted to create. They used a final layer of bags to smooth out the surface and then added details of the animal. These sculptures are 2-3 feet tall. -Jessica Sinclair, HS Art teacher.
Essential Question: How do I use what I know to make connections between my academic work and life lessons to the natural world?
