    Hello Wings Academy Scholars and Families!

    We are looking forward to seeing our In-Person Scholars on Tuesday, March 23rd!

    The staff have been re-preparing our school building to be as safe and welcoming as possible. We have wall thermometers, room air purifiers, wall signage and floor markings, our ventilation system has been inspected/passed, and we have established a few procedures as you when you get to and enter the building. We hope you are as excited as we are!

    If you haven't done so, please familiarize yourselves with our Return to School Plan which is updated frequently. Also, ALL in-person scholars and families MUST complete the Student COVID-19 Testing Consent Form. We have also attached it for your convenience!

    Lastly just a few reminders as you begin your In-Person days with us beginning on Tuesday, March 23rd:

    12. Scholars enter the building and wait in the cafeteria until the bell rings

    15. Wear face coverings at all times (You may remove them when eating breakfast and lunch)
    16. When going to the restroom or office, sign-out/sign-in the teachers logbook

    UPDATE!!! Parent Teacher Conferences, In-Person Learning Returns, and Parent Town Hall

    Hello Wings Academy Parent/Guardians of In-Person Scholars,

    In order to make the return to Wings Academy on Tuesday, March 23rd for your child easier, we are making available the completion of the COVID Consent Form in two ways. Parent/Guardians can either:

    1. Download the attached COVID Consent Form in either English, Spanish, Arabic or Haitian-Creole, fill out, sign and have your child return the form on Tuesday, March 23rd, OR
    2. Parents can come to Wings Academy either Thursday, March 18th or Friday, March 19th and complete the form at the school.
    We hope this eases any pressure you have with the return of your child to the school building. As shared previously, unfortunately, there is not an option for parents/guardians to switch their child from remote to in-person at this time.

    Thank you!

    Hello Wings Academy Scholars, Families and Staff,

    First and foremost, I would like to celebrate all women of the Wings Academy community by wishing them a Happy Women's History month! The accomplishments achieved and the barriers broken by the powerful women in history, must be acknowledged and cherished from each and every one of us. Therefore, we must commemorate and encourage the role that every woman has played for their contribution to society.

    Secondly, I would like to provide everyone with the latest updates regarding Parent Teacher Conferences, School Re-Opening, and Parent Town Hall. As you may have heard, high school buildings are re-opening in under two weeks. Staff are making preparation for the return of our in-person scholars (we have been making phone calls to the in-person scholars to confirm their return.) Prior to school buildings re-opening, all high schools are holding their Parent Teacher conferences next week. You will hear more information from your child's teacher shortly. Lastly, we are holding a Parent Town Hall before the spring recess to ensure our scholars get the encouragement to make a big push in achieving higher passing grades in their classes.

    • Parent Teacher Conferences - Thursday, March 18th from 5pm-7:30pm and Friday, March 19th from 12:30pm-2:30pm
    • In-Person Scholars return to the school building - Tuesday, March 23rd
    • Parent Town Hall - Thursday, March 25th at 6pm
    Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, March 18th from 5:00pm-7:30pm and Friday, March 19th from 12:30pm-2:30pm. Teachers will contact the families to setup an appointment to share the academic progress of your child. All conferences are virtual. There will not be in-person parent teacher conferences.
     
    Wings Academy school building will open for in-person learning on Tuesday, March 23rd. Under a recent agreement, only specific schools (Wings Academy being one of them) are fully remote on Mondays for the remainder of the school year. From Tuesday-Friday, in-person scholars report to Wings Academy every day. There are no more groups. All scholars will follow their same program. In the event your child's program is changed, their counselor will contact you and your child. If a parent chooses to switch their child to fully remote, please complete the form using this linkUnfortunately, there is not an option for parents to switch their child from remote to in-person at this time.
     
    The Parent Town Hall will be held on Thursday, March 25th at 6pm (details and link to follow.) THIS IS AN URGENT MEETING FOR ALL PARENTS. We need as many parents as possible to attend. We need your help and support to encourage your child in attending classes on time and every day, completing their assignments and getting the highest possible passing grade. We need some ideas! The large number of incomplete assignments and low grades are hurting our scholars progress and we need to figure this out together. So please join me because I know we can make this happen!
     
    As always, I continue to pray for the well being, safety and health of each and every member of our Wings Academy family. Please stay strong and keep encouraging one another. We are one. We are Wings.
     
    In Strength,

    ***UPDATED (9/30) ***Student Information Regarding Classes

    When Should You Come to School for Your Classes?

    In order to ensure social distancing, students who are coming to school for classes (blended learning) will be coming in smaller groups on different days. We will be using a six day cycle for classes, with students in school for two school days in a row, and learning from home for the next four school days. Students will be organized into three groups, A, B, and C. The cycle will be AA (Day 1 and 2), BB (Day 3 and 4), CC (Day 5 and 6). The A group comes for 2 days, then the B group for 2 days, and then the C group for 2 days.

    The D group are the students who will be learning from home full time (remote).

    All students will follow their schedules remotely for the first three days, from Wednesday to Friday, September 16th-18th. Students must use their Wings Nation email/account and follow their schedules each day. In school classes start on Monday, September 21st.

    Students should click on the link below that corresponds to their grade to see which group they are assigned.  Students should look for their OSIS number (9 digit ID) and see if they are in A, B, or C. (Note this list may not show recent requests submitted for full time remote instruction.)

    9th Grade Groups      10th Grade Groups        11th Grade Groups                 12th Grade Groups

    The link below is the calendar that tells students the dates they should come to the school for their classes (remember to check the date with the group number). On the days students are home, they should follow their schedule and sign into their classes.

    9TH GRADERS: YOUR WINGS NATION ACCOUNTS

    Ninth graders all have Wings Nation accounts/emails now. Students will use these to sign into their classes online and receive emails from their teachers that will let them link into those classes.

    Emails are in this format: lastname.firstname@wingsnation.org. (no capitals). Therefore, if your name is Miles Davis, your email is davis.miles@wingsnation.org.

    Students default email password is Wings123 . (Make sure you capitalize the W). Change it right away to another password, and keep track of that password.

  • Steps on how to get an extension to complete NX work from last spring and summer

    Hello WIngs Academy Families, 

    A attached letter was sent to all parents/guardians, it only applies to the parents of those students who have not completed NX (incomplete) grades from the spring or summer terms of last year, 2020. Assistant Principal Pond will contact those specific parents of students that this applies to in the coming days. The letter explains who can get an extension to complete this work. Parents/Guardians must describe any reasons why your child could not complete the work. Email your reason to mrpond@wingsnation.org or mpond@schools.nyc.gov.  By the way, students who received NX final grades in the fall Term 1 of this school year will have until June to complete this work and get a credit. These students will be scheduled for PM school to work on these NX grades, with PM classes beginning the week of February 22nd.
