  • 2017-2018 school budget review sessions begin March 9

    In preparation for the May 16 school budget vote, the City School District of New Rochelle Board of Education will be holding its 2017-2018 school budget review sessions. The district welcomes the community's input.

    The district's finance staff is working on crafting a proposed budget to present to the board for adoption at its April 19 meeting. Final numbers for the proposed budget will not be available until April. 

    Meetings will take place on March 9, 14 and 21 at 7 p.m. at the New Rochelle High School Library. All meetings will be broadcast live on the district's website and rebroadcast on Cablevision Channel 70 and Verizon FiOS Channel 30.

    Putting together a school budget in New York State is complex. The district continues to follow zero-based budgeting development practices, meaning all expenses must be justified for each new period, starting from a "zero base," with every function analyzed for its needs and costs.

    "We stay focused on what's most important, and that is providing the best educational programs and services to our students, while making sure everyone's needs are met in a healthy and safe environment," said Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne.  "We prioritize continuing approaches that are working, and then we look at what enhancements we can make to better support all our students."

    Questions about any aspect of the proposed budget can be emailed to the district at budgetquestions@nredlearn.org.

    Osborne stressed that the community's involvement is important. "The input that we receive matters, and we appreciate the engagement of the community."

  • Rent the Runway making prom magic for seniors

    New Rochelle High School seniors will have the opportunity to walk into their prom in June dressed in free high-end designer clothes, courtesy of Jennifer Hyman, a NRHS alum and CEO of Rent the Runway.

    Hyman, Class of 1998, made the generous offer in October when she was inducted into the New Rochelle High School Wall of Fame. She said the gift was her way of giving back to her alma mater, where she developed the confidence to face the world.

    Rent the Runway is a successful New York City-based online service that provides designer dresses and accessories for rent at a fraction of the retail price. The company also has a handful of stores in major U.S. cities, including New York City.

    On Friday, March 24, starting at 8 p.m., Rent the Runway's flagship store at 30 W. 15th Street will be open exclusively to NRHS seniors. Students can visit the store to select dresses and accessories.

    Students who are unable to go to the store will receive a free promo code that will allow them to rent their dresses and accessories entirely online. Their selections will then be mailed to their homes.

    "That will be a lot of pressure off parents because it's very expensive to dress for the prom," said NRHS Principal Reggie Richardson. "With Rent the Runway, every girl can dress in high quality designer clothes. Jen is giving our students the opportunity to experience a rite of passage that isn't affordable to everyone in our community."

    This is the second time that Hyman has provided prom dresses to NRHS seniors. She made the offer last year as well, but because the announcement came in May, most students had already made arrangements for their prom dresses. Only 80 students availed themselves of the opportunity.

    Richardson said details of the Rent the Runway offer came early enough this year to greatly increase the likelihood of participation.

  • Jefferson teachers moving beyond traditional methods

    At a recent meeting, teachers and administrators from Jefferson Elementary School shared with the Board of Education how professional learning strategies are impacting classroom instruction. The instructional practices they discussed were student-driven and focused on the application of acquired information, as well as problem solving.

    When discussing literacy instruction, Principal Kimmerly Nieves shared that teachers at Jefferson are going beyond traditional methods. She was particularly excited about the success students are having when they use an instructional practice called accountable talk.  Accountable talk involves collaborative discussion among students and includes repeating what was read, clarifying the meaning, making connections and revising understanding upon further reflection.

    Teacher Stefanie Syken shared how Jefferson teachers are supporting their students in mathematical investigations that are leading to higher understandings. The guiding principle of these investigations is that students come to school with existing ideas about numbers and then build upon those ideas when provided with the proper environment, interaction and support.

    Regardless of the subject, the students at Jefferson are being provided with valuable opportunities to talk with their peers about their ideas, discuss different viewpoints and continually add to their prior knowledge. And through ongoing professional development and colleague support, educators are learning how to better support their students in their investigations and discoveries.

  • New Rochelle schools host immigration workshops

    Hundreds of local residents packed New Rochelle High School and Columbus Elementary School last month to attend immigration rights workshops held just days after the Trump administration announced measures that would greatly expand the deportation of illegal immigrants. The workshops were planned in response to anxiety expressed by residents who were hearing rumors about immigration raids.

    At NRHS, three student groups - Hispanic Culture Club, United Cultures Club and Newcomer Ambassadors - asked the school to host a workshop. Columbus Elementary opened its doors after Councilman Louis Trangucci reached out to Principal Michael Galland and voiced the need to come together to squash rumors and reassure residents that New Rochelle is a welcoming and caring community that values all law-abiding people and families.

    "Many families are terrified. There is uncertainty, fear and confusion about what the authorities will or will not do, and that stress is being absorbed by children," said Galland. "As educators, our duty is to nurture children emotionally, socially and intellectually."

    More than 500 people attended the Feb. 16 immigration forum at Columbus Elementary, which included a presentation by The Westchester Hispanic Coalition that addressed issues related to immigration laws. Graciela Heyman, the executive director, spoke about the rights of immigrants and offered advice on how to respond when face-to-face with immigration officials.

    Commissioner Patrick Carroll and Captain Adrian Navarrete of the New Rochelle Police Department were present to reassure residents that police officers would continue to focus on the safety of the community.

    More than 200 people attended the workshop at NRHS on Feb. 15. It included a presentation on scholarship opportunities for undocumented students, including those who were brought to the United States as children, currently covered under the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

     The discussion was led by representatives of the CUNY Becas scholarship program and The Guidance Center of Westchester. The Hudson Valley Community Coalition also provided information on DACA and undocumented immigrants.

     Officer Edward Martinez of the New Rochelle Police Department addressed the gathered families and told them that officers would not pursue immigrants or ask them to produce documents. Rather, he said, the focus would continue to be on fighting crime.

     Gustavo Barbosa, house principal at NRHS, said the evening was successful because of the support by Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne and other district officials.

     "Not many school districts are willing to provide this level of support to immigrant families," said Barbosa. "In New Rochelle, we really understand that what happens in our community has a direct impact on our students' academic performance and how they feel when they come to school. That's why it was important to reach out."

  • Nicolas Cracco named new principal at Henry Barnard

    The City School District of New Rochelle has appointed Dr. Nicolas Cracco as the new principal of the Henry Barnard Early Childhood Center. The Board of Education approved the appointment of Dr. Cracco at its meeting last week.

    Dr. Cracco was the assistant principal of the Early Childhood Discovery and Design Magnet School, P.S. 185, in New York. He previously taught mathematics at Knowledge and Power Preparatory Academy in the Bronx.

    "His experience as an educator and administrator will be a great asset as we continue to provide an excellent early childhood education for students at Henry Barnard," said Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne.

    Dr. Cracco received a bachelor's degree in psychology from C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University, a master's degree in mathematics from the City University of New York, and a doctorate of education in instructional leadership from St. John's University. He also earned an advanced certificate in school building and school district leadership from St. John's University.

    "It is an honor to come lead a prestigious school such as Henry Barnard Early Childhood Center as its next principal," Dr. Cracco said. "I look forward to building on the programs that are in place and can't wait to begin working with the parents, students, teachers and staff."

    He will join Henry Barnard as principal on Jan. 3, 2017.

We are grateful to work with our fabulous students, talented staff members, and incredible families. Thank you for your continued collaboration as we work to support our students on their quest to become their personal best!

Here at Albert Leonard Middle School, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our entire school community in an academically challenging and supportive learning environment. In particular, we have devoted time at ALMS to promote the up-stander mentality (as opposed to the by-stander mentality) when it comes to bullying.

We thank STOMP Out Bullying (CEO Ms. Ross Ellis) and The New York Jets (Mr. Jesse Linder) for recognizing our entire school community for our efforts as we work to eradicate bullying in our school. We had a special day with Eric Decker and Jessie James Decker visiting the school and speaking about bullying from both a by-stander and victim's perspective. Although we had a full audience, you could have heard a pin drop as these personal stories were shared with our engaged students. It is quite an honor for Albert Leonard and the district for us to be the first school recognized in The New York Jets' School Recognition Program. Congratulations to all! Mr. Barnes spoke at Met Life Stadium, over the summer, to a panel of educators looking to combat bullying in their school organizations. For more information about STOMP Out Bullying, please visit their website http://www.stompoutbullying.org.

Our PTA is actively involved in all aspects of our school, and we are a better school as a result of our partnership and strong home/school connection. This past year,  Nancy Podhradsky and Kim Castellano served as our PTA Co-Presidents. We thank Ms. Podhradsky for her two years of service as our PTA President and will miss her this coming year! We also thank Ms. Anne Todd for joining Ms. Castellano as our 2017/2018 PTA Co-Presidents, and look forward to a great year of working together.

Cheers to a wonderful school community and a phenomenal 2017-2018 school year! We will be sending out follow-up communication regarding our upcoming school year. Please check our website and feel free to call or email with any specific questions you may have.

With appreciation,

John Barnes

    2017 New York National Geographic State Bee

    Semifinalist Press Release



    Local Student Named Jeremy Bramson National Geographic State Bee Semifinalist by National Geographic Society

    Student’s Name: Jeremy Bramson  

    School Name and Address: Albert Leonard Middle School, New Rochelle, NY

    The above-named student has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2017 New York National Geographic State Bee. The contest will be held on Friday, March 31, 2017.

    This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 29th year. School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the State Bees.

    Each state champion will receive $100, the National Geographic Concise Atlas of the World, 4th Edition and a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent their state in the National Geographic Bee Championship to be held at National Geographic Society headquarters, May 14-17, 2017. The national champion will receive a $50,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the Society, including a subscription to National Geographic magazine, and an all expenses paid Lindblad expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the new National Geographic Endeavour ll. Travel for the trip is provided by Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic. Visit www.natgeobee.org for more information on the National Geographic Bee.

    The National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD will air the 2017 National Geographic Bee Championship, moderated by journalist and humorist Mo Rocca, on Friday, May 19, at 8 p.m. ET. Public television stations will broadcast the final round at a later date. Check local television listings for the air date and time in your area.

    How would you fare as a Bee contestant? At the school Bees this year, students had to answer questions like these:

    The North Platte and South Platte Rivers meet in which state—New Mexico or Nebraska?


     Which landmark in Washington, D.C., was burned by the British in 1814—the Washington Monument or the White House?

    White House

     Sea otters sometimes wrap themselves in kelp when resting to keep from drifting​ ​​away. Sea otters can be found near eastern Russia in the Sea of Okhotsk in which​ ​ocean?

    Pacific Ocean

     The island of Mauritius [maw-RISH-uhs] in the Indian Ocean has multicolored sand dunes. It’s weird, but it’s true! Mauritius lies off the southeast coast of which continent that includes the Kalahari Desert?


     What is the term for an underground layer of rock that holds groundwater—an arroyo​ or an aquifer?


     MEDIA NOTE: Prior to the state finals on March 31, press materials with additional information about the state- and national-level contests will be posted at natgeo.org/newsroom. To be notified when these materials are available, or for other inquiries, contact Farley Fitzgerald (ffitzgerald@ngs.org / 202-775-6119) with the National Geographic Society Communications Department.

  • Kids honor Dr. Martin Luther King with their oratory

    Jordan J. Williams (Gr. 6) and Paul Taylor (Gr. 7),  ALMS Students, were among the many children that  honored Dr. Martin Luther King  Jr. at the Shiloh Baptist Church in New Rochelle, Jan. 15, 2017.  Jordan’s essay was the winner in the 11- 13-year-old category in Shiloh’s annual oratorical contest, now in its 19th year.  Jordan edged out Paul Taylor, a young man with a booming voice who struggled to recall the words to his speech during last year’s contest. But, Paul returned this year and remembered every word. He focused on the civil rights leader Malcolm X. "Like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X also fought for equal rights,” said Paul, 13. “Though their styles were different, Malcolm X was able to encourage, inspire and empower the black community.” The young man’s tenacity won the praise of judges and Shiloh pastor DeQuincy Hentz. “You’re not a quitter,” Hentz told him. “You understand that if I go down I can get back up.”

    Congratulations to all the participants!

  • Theatre in Trunk performance

    Robin Hood Has Left the Building,  A Stellar Performance!

    Something spectacular happened at Albert Leonard Middle School on Friday, December 16th. Twenty Nine troubadors with even more supporting backstage crew took to the boards of the Junior Auditorium brilliantly performing “Robin Hood Has Left the Building”, an original satiric one-act play. Edwin Barrios and Yuri Sandmeier ran the sound for the show.

    A medieval newsboy (Brandon Maddox) set off the first explosive scene proclaiming headlines… “King Richard in Holy Lands; Peace talks with Saladin!”. The Queen Mum (Sarah Rothenstreich) established herself as the matriarch, crushing her entire Royal Guard in one fell swoop (Estabon Delgado, Bernabe Rangel and Dwight Richards). Oppressed peasants (Heaven Brown, Kathleen Cremins, Peyton Edwards, Dyana Garcia, Hannah Muriel, Carys Nardozzi, Cecilia Roe and Emma Stockhausen) waved demonstration signs spurring the action of the historic fable, crying for an end of the crusades. Prince John (Matthew Dodd) and the Sheriff of Nottingham (Matthew Conway) forever at odds, were equally capable of evil, taxing the peasants and pocketing the money. The rich barons (Katie Alago, Brooke O’Brien and Katie Trinidad) swore allegiance to Prince John and signed a Contract of Conspiracy, a redacted document which was impossible to read but clearly a threat to King Richard. Meanwhile Maid Marion (Micaja Lorse) “a modern medieval girl”, spotted the conspiracy and headed to Sherwood Forest to clue in Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Robin (Victor Garcia-Gallet) Little John (Sonia McCuthen) and Friar Tuck (Israel Illa) catch the Barons red handed with hard earned peasant money. Robin and his men head to the castle to take down Prince John. Meanwhile Maid Marion gets kidnapped by the Sheriff and is about to be dealt with along with a line of peasants. Just when the Torturer (Sam Kendall) is about to take care of business, along comes Robin Hood to the rescue. He and his men valiantly attempt to take on the Royal Guard and Prince John with swords and karate chops. Just in time, His Majesty’s Secret Service (Brandon Maddox and Cameron Carter) appear on the scene, scoping  out security for the monarchy. Mighty King Richard (Sebastian Delgado) breaks up the party riding in on horseback and introducing Saladin the Brave (Miles Archibald). In a twist ending, the too-cool-for-school Marion winds up marrying hipster Saladin (“My mother was a beatnik”, he says) leaving Robin cold at the altar and everyone calling the green-glad hero a square.

    All of the dedicated students put a lot of work into learning their lines at breakneck speed for a performance slated to highlight the newly formed ALMS Rep just before the Winter Holiday Break. The cast included sixth, seventh and eighth grade performers and craftspeople, some who have even been enrolled in both Theatre in a Trunk and Backstage Pass for three years. The two programs have been performing at ALMS since 2013. They have performed original material and occasionally classic plays by William Shakespeare. The productions so far have included “We Gather together, A Zombie Thanksgiving”, “The Deadbeats”, “Little Red: When Fairy Tales Collide”, this winter’s production, and the classic play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

     Last year we were fortunate to perform “Little Red” at the Ozzie Davis Theatre in the New Rochelle Library as part of “Our Children, Our Artists” celebration. SEPTA and the PTA have been generous contributors to our programs.  Sincere thanks to all staff and friends who have contributed their efforts to make this challenging venture a success. Please see the attached statement written and read by Agustino Atallah and Katie Alago on Friday night after the performance. The program notes specify staff and other contributors.

Summer Reading and Math 2017


Dear Parents/Guardians:    

We congratulate our students on the completion of a successful school year and look forward to greeting them in September and welcoming our rising 6th graders!  In preparation for the upcoming school year, students have been assigned a summer reading assignment which we hope will foster a love for reading and serve as a continuum for learning.

This summer we are asking students to select their own reading book and have provided a list of titles to help guide their selections.  Students will be asked to identify the genre of the book and analyze how their selected title fits into that genre.  

Students entering grades 7 and 8 will locate a non-fiction article related to an aspect of their reading, and respond to questions on that article.  

Students have been provided with a copy of the assignment and when they begin school in the fall, we expect that they come prepared with the completed assignment. This will be the first English Language Arts assignment for the new school year with teachers assessing students achievement and effort.

If you have any questions or need assistance with the assignment, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thank you for your support and enjoy your summer!


John Barnes, Principal
