Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe we are just weeks away from the new academic journey. I am delighted to welcome all students back to school for the 2022 – 2023 academic year at the Big Apple Academy, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School. The faculty and staff have accomplished an impressive amount of work to prepare both school buildings for another year of learning and growth. The safety and health of our students are still our number one priority, and we will continue to work with local and state agencies to ensure we are doing everything we can for our students and staff. As of now, let me extend my special greetings to the parents of the 2022-2023 Kindergarten Class. On September 6, your children will begin an exciting yet challenging journey to the world of knowledge.Our first PTC Meeting for Kindergarten class and NEW students is scheduled on Wednesday, August 31 at 7:00 p.m. at 503 Lake Street. Please allow your children some time to adjust to our rigorous learning routines. We hope you will stay in contact with our classroom and subject teachers to make your children’s transition into school life smooth and enjoyable.

In addition, I would like to send my special greetings to our future graduates who are entering eighth grade this year. Please be prepared for another challenging year marked with an intense schedule and preparations for the Regents Examinations in Mathematics, English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. Please note that this year, our eighth graders will take Regents Examination in U.S. History and Government in a new format adopted by the New York State. I am confident that the graduating Cohort of 2023 will face these challenges with perseverance and commitment to hard work. As we begin a new academic year, please remember that we sincerely welcome your parental involvement. Since we recognize that parents are their children’s first and most important teachers, we need your input to provide your children with the best education possible. I wish you a relaxing end to a beautiful summer of 2022.

Best Regards,
Vlad Gorny
