  • 2017 Summer Mailing Forms - Update 8/10/17

    Please see the Connect-Ed message that was sent to families on the morning of July 18 regarding the new process for the 2017 Summer Mailing Forms. Please select "Read More" for updates.

    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

AP Environmental Science

  The AP Environmental Science classes presented their final projects last week at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. They included writing and illustrating a children’s storybook about a water bottle that would be recycled, creating a monopoly-inspired board game that includes selling home-grown produce and buying carbon tax credits, and setting up a Hunger Banquet to simulate the imbalanced distribution of food in our world.

The diversity of projects represents the interdisciplinary nature of this college-level integrated science course.  

“The course covers topics ranging from evolution to population dynamics, from climate control to birth control, and from sink holes to ozone holes,” said Dr. Burke, the head of John Jay’s science department who has taught this class since 1999. “The course is taught experientially, thus laboratory and field work, both directed and independent, are integral components of the course.”

  “We look at the real world and try to find solutions to problems,” said Dr. Burke. “Much of what we do ties back to use of resources."

 This year, AP Environmental Science students tested the soil on their own property, and analyzed their household’s water use. They participated in Bedford Audubon Society's Hawk Watch at Butler Sanctuary, met a master falconer who introduced them to birds of prey, and learned about soil from Rene Marion, Stone Barns’ Director of Education. They monitored streams, built bluebird boxes, measured trees, visited a former iron and zinc mine, and more—noting observations of each experience in a field journal.
