what did I do over summer vacation

This is a quirky business. Everyone assumes that September is my busy time - actually not as much as the dog days of August. Happily for me, the DOE distributes their admissions throughout the year, and just when the middle schoolers stop calling the elementary parents start in. The summer is very busy with families moving, the second round of prek applications, the DOE HS directory and the independent school applications coming online. I love switching gears from talking about AP classes to discussing what is great about blocks in the classroom. And a word to the wise, if you are thinking of booking a consult, do it sooner rather than later.

So here are some things to watch:
Preschool: If you find yourself without a placement, call the schools this month, you may get lucky
PreK: July 19 the PreK Second Round directories go online.
High School: Wed. 7/7, 7/14, Tues. 7/20, 7/27, 8/3, 8/10 the DOE holds their summer workshops
High School: Thurs 7/15, 7/19 I hold my HS Short List Workshops, different from anything the DOE does
State Test Scores should be coming out in August
If you have your heart set on an Independent School keep checking the websites for applications and tours. They ususally start coming online in August
Nursery School talk: I will probably do one or two in August and September and I will list them on the site

Also I just sent out my July newsletter. I am quite regular getting one out a month, as close to the first as I can. If you have signed up and haven't been getting them, make sure that I am on your approved email list, or check your spam folder. If you haven't signed up, you can do it here.
