We welcome students and families to our annual Back to School Night on Thursday, September 1st from 6pm-7:30pm. The event will be held at the school. See below for a letter from our principal regarding what to expect.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that we welcome students and families back to school for the 2016-2017 school year!
We hope your summer has been restful and that you feel ready to start the new year with us. As we prepare for your student’s arrival, we have some exciting news and updates regarding our name and facilities. Starting this school year, we will no longer be known as the Henry Street School for International Studies. Our new name is Orchard Collegiate Academy. With this name change comes a chance to reinvigorate our mission and create new opportunities for our students. We hope that you and your family will be partners with us as we redefine ourselves and look towards the future. To go along with this name change, we have also moved locations within the school building. You will now find our main office on the first floor and the majority of our classrooms on the second floor of 220 Henry Street.
In anticipation of the first day of school on September 8th, we invite you to come learn more about these changes and provide feedback at our annual Back to School Night. This event will be held on Thursday, September 1st at 6pm at the school. Together we will review plans for the upcoming school year, hear about exciting opportunities from our community-based partner organization, the Henry Street Settlement , and answer any questions that you may have about your child’s education and how you can be involved.
We look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night. Thank you in advance for your continued support and commitment to your child and our school.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer! Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
