DONATE TO THE ANNUAL APPEAL - STUYVESANT NEEDS YOUR HELP
The PA recently mailed the annual appeal letters. Please
read about the exciting large projects that your generosity has made possible.
With your generous support, the PA has approved $385,000
for renovations to the theater sound system, new floors for the dance studios
and improved HVAC for the gyms. Principal Zhang is overseeing getting
that work done. Engineering investigation is ongoing to find out exactly
what needs to be done, who is going to do the work, and when it will be
accomplished. We are hopeful that the latter two can be done this
summer. We expect the sound system to be at least started in the summer,
but that is a much larger and more complicated project. We don't want to
stop there, so please mail back a check or donate online so our students can
continue to benefit from one of the best public schools in the country.
Thank you for your support!
To Donate to the Annual Appeal and see how your donations have worked to help the school,

NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat introduced Bill S-1787 to “Authorize[s] the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York to establish standards for admission to special high schools” (http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S1787-2015) (The special high schools include: Stuyvesant,Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Staten Island Tech, Queens HS for the Sciences at York College, HS for Math, Science and Engineering at City College, HS for American Studies at Lehman college, Brooklyn Latin, Laguardia HS and all additional schools that the board of education of the city school district of the City of New York designates as special high schools)Many Stuy parents attended the Dec 11 rally at City Hall to oppose the City Council Resolution to support the NYS bills to change the Specialized High Schools admissions policy from the current single, objective test admissions criterion to multiple, including subjective and non-academic, criteria. Many Stuy parents also testified at City Hall, signed petitions, and sent emails to legislators. Our voices make a difference! The resolution in the NYC Council may or may not come up for a vote. There will be more actions we can take as developments occur.Please contact
if you want further information and would like to be involved. Most recent update: Photos from the August 2014 Camp Stuy. Enjoy!
