March 15, 2021

Dear Students,

I hope this letter finds you well. As you know, New York City Public High Schools are scheduled to reopen on Monday, March 22, 2021. I, for one, am overjoyed at the prospect that students will once again learn in our building! I know I speak for your in-person teachers and staff in expressing their excitement at the prospect of a return to in-person learning.

I just want to take a moment to share with you some of the important information regarding our reopening:

  1. Students in A & B cohorts will resume in person learning according to our in-person learning schedule. Students in cohorts A& B will receive their schedule for attendance via e-mail, pupil path, and will also receive telephone calls to remind them of their days of attendance. This information will go out beginning on Thursday March 18.

  2. Fridays will remain enrichment days and will continue to be all remote for all students.

  3. The scanning entrance will open for in-person students Monday- Thursday at 8:00 AM on Grandview Avenue.

ü ALL IN PERSON STUDENTS MUST SUBMIT CONSENT FOR COVID TESTING. PLEASE BE CERTAIN THAT YOUR PARENT HAS SUBMITTED THIS FORM (FOR STUDENTS UNDER THE AGE OF 18)

ü All STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE THE HEALTH SCREENING DAILY QUESTIONAIRE DAILY BEFORE ENTERING THE SCHOOL BUILDING

You may also have heard that PSAL Athletics will be resuming soon. Please keep in mind the following:

  1. As of today March 15, we have received no further information regarding PSAL Athletics and eligibility. Once we receive this information we will share with all students.

  2. We do not know which sports may resume. If you are a student athlete, and want to participate in PSAL Athletics once they resume, you should prepare to get your physical for eligibility. Please be certain to speak with your parents regarding PSAL requirements and eligibility. Forms are available at www.psal.org

Finally, for seniors, we are in the process of planning our Class of 2021 Commencement exercises. Our goal is to conduct a safe-socially distanced in-person ceremony on the Grover Cleveland H.S. athletic field. We will keep you informed as to the date and the logistics of our graduation ceremony. Please be sure to keep up with your classes in order to ensure that you complete all requirements necessary for graduation.

Again, I look forward to seeing those of you who will be returning to the building the week of March 22.

Yours Truly,

Marc A Pascente

Principal

MISSION STATEMENT | VISION

MISSION STATEMENT

At Grover Cleveland High School, we are committed to providing a rigorous, engaging, relevant education that equips students for the academic and professional challenges of the 21st Century.

We are dedicated to fostering a diverse, nurturing, safe and student-centered environment where our children excel academically with continued cultural, social and emotional supports.

VISION

We believe students learn best when cognitively engaged in inquiry-based work through challenging and rigorous curricula that motivates them to formulate questions, think critically, evaluate, problem-solve and engage with one another in meaningful discourse and analysis.

We will implement rigorous instruction that is culturally responsive, delivered by a caring and dedicated staff that facilitates student engagement and discourse in a supportive and challenging learning environment.

We will foster an inclusive environment where diverse learners have equal access to instruction and graduate prepared to be civic-minded and engaged citizens of our school community and beyond and to thrive in the college and career of their choosing.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Grover Cleveland High School caters to the needs and interests of our students. Clubs can be academic, athletic or social in nature. Forming a club is easy. Students simply have to gather at least 10 interested students and gain approval from the Coordinator of Student Activities and/or the principal.

Key Club: Key Club students positively impact the community by engaging in community-based events throughout the year, which not only helps improve the community at large, but also helps build leadership abilities and bolster their resumes for college and career.

Cheer: Currently being run as a club, our Cheer program is well-on-its way to becoming a competitive sport. Cheer not only challenges our students physically and mentally, but also promotes teamwork, character building, and academic excellence.

Robotics: The Robotic Club gather students who are interested in learning about and working with robots. It is competition driven club where teams of students must design and build a robot that can compete against opponents from other high schools in a series of specific challenges.

WHO WE ARE?

We are large comprehensive public high school that offer many opportunities and pathways for students success.

We are a student-centered school deeply committed to the philosophy of creating life-long learners. Our goal is to prepare students to be productive, pro-active members of society. Our students are challenged to excel in both academic and extra-curricular programs. They are encouraged to explore, experiment and question. The faculty and staff of Grover Cleveland expect our students to meet high academic and behavioral standards. Therefore, we provide every possible means of support to help students meet and surpass those standards.

We encouraged students to be physically active and engage in sport activities. Besides housing a pool in the main building, the Grover Cleveland High School campus also contains an attached softball field, as well as a newly renovated multi-sport field a few block away where baseball, handball, softball, soccer, tennis, and track and field can be played. Here at Grover Cleveland High School we firmly believe in teaching the whole child, academically, socially, and physically.

"Expected"

by Grover Cleveland High School students on The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus

"Students at one New York high school are learning how to swim for the first time while also training to be lifeguards.

The students are able to use their jobs as lifeguards to save money for college and help their family members in need. Their coach says the best part is watching the lifesaving lessons pay off in and out of the pool."Click on the link to read the article
