Summer Opportunities Presentation: Summer is on its way… and School Counselor Harvey Blumm will give an insightful presentation on how your student can find internships and opportunities. Harvey has worked with students at Stuy for years and has helped many of them to find great opportunities during their summer recess. Not only does an interesting summer occupation give your student something to talk about, it is also very important for college applications. In NYC, we have a lot of students from the other SHSAT and private schools competing for these opportunities. Harvey will give you an insider’s view on how to get ahead of the game and “think out of the box.” Applications for summer internships and jobs are open now!

All parents are invited to attend.

The Irwin Zahn Innovation Lab will be housed in Room 250, and has been made possible through the generous support of the Grant-Writing Committee of the Stuyvesant High School Parent’s Association, which resulted in grants from Manhattan Borough President, Gayle Brewer and New York City Councilwoman, Margaret Chin; additional generous support and donations from the Parent’s Association; ongoing generous support from Stuyvesant Alumnus ‘44, Irwin Zahn, and the support of the Stuyvesant High School Alumni Association.

Raise Money for Stuy at Amazon

Did you know that any time you click on an Amazon ad on the Stuy PA website and purchase something at Amazon, a percentage of your sale goes directly to the Stuy PA at no extra cost to you and with no change to your existing membership services (such as Prime).

This is such an easy way to make a difference—and, BONUS! you’ll kill two birds with one stone—not only will you cross some items off your list, you’ll be contributing money to Stuy that gets used for great programs that directly benefit your kids. Sports, academics, clubs, teachers, the library, and even the principal all receive money from the PA.

You may see a pop-up when you get to Amazon that asks you if you want to shop “Amazon Smile” to benefit Stuyvesant. This program pays out at a much lower rate, so please do not use this option. Instead, bookmark this link (or click on any Amazon ad on this website) before shopping at Amazon.
