Weekly Update 9/23/18

Good afternoon,

Happy autumn (my favorite season)!! I hope everyone had a stress-free weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather. This is the first full week of school since the start of the school year…good luck!

Reminder- Students, parents, and administrators receive these emails. If at any point you would like to be removed from the “Weekly Updates”, just email me, and I will take you off.

All my best,

Mrs. Feinman


  1. All-county forms are due THIS week on WEDNESDAY. I attached the forms to this email. All-County commitment forms are attached to this email. Division IV is grades 9 and 10, Division V is grades 11 and 12. In order to eligible for All-County, students must have participated in NYSSMA last year (2017-2018 school year) and have a NYSSMA score. Decisions are announced the 2nd or 3rd week of October.
  2. Congratulations to the Marching Band who won 2nd place last weekend! Good luck in Copiague today.
