Spring Round Up
Time is flying in the high school–we can’t believe we have one week until Field Day! A reminder to families that next Friday, May 27th is a day of school, and a wonderful tradition for the whole LREI community! We will spend time with our lower school buddies and celebrate the Class of 2022.
And as we plan the end-of-high-school celebrations for the graduating class of 2022, we are also in the process of welcoming the class of 2026–a robust and energetic group that is our largest class ever, with students joining from schools across New York City. Our 2022-2023 Peer Leaders enthusiastically welcomed them to LREI yesterday for the traditional ice cream social; it was so wonderful to have them in the building.
Next week we will release the 2022-2023 Course Guide for rising juniors and seniors. This year, we are thrilled to offer this guide in a new, digital format that we hope will help students and families more clearly assess which courses students want to take next year. We will share this with students on Tuesday in an assembly, and then out to families later in the day. We ask that all rising junior/senior families review this with their students in the next 2 weeks, when course sign-up forms will be due.

End of year grades and comments are typically released a week after the end of school. We often get questions about transcripts at that time. If, after you review grades and comments, you notice discrepancies on your student’s transcript, you can email Jenny Escorcia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note–it takes longer to certify Honors Projects, so these may not immediately appear on the transcript in June.
