Peer Group Connect

 

Upcoming Event: Bake Sale, Friday 9/21/18. Come out to support your peers!

Peer Group Connection (PGC) is an evidence-based program that supports and eases students’ successful transition from middle to high school. The program taps into the power of high school juniors and seniors to create a nurturing environment for incoming freshmen. Once per week, pairs of junior and senior peer leaders meet with groups of 6-8 freshmen in outreach sessions designed to strengthen relationships among students across grades. These peer leaders are simultaneously enrolled in a daily, for-credit, year-long leadership course taught by school faculty during regular school hours. 

Services found that, among other major results, PGC improves the graduation rates of student participants in an inner city public school by ten percentage points and cuts by half the number of male students who would otherwise drop out.

 

Frost Valley 2018

Sports: Lady Tigers

 

         

Events: Trip to Citi Field, Flushing, Queens

  

On May 3, 2018 TPS attended a baseball game at Citi Field between the hometown New York Mets and division rivals, Atlanta Braves. This trip rewarded those students who earned passing grades in their classes during the fourth marking period. For many students, this was their first time attending a professional baseball game; you could see the anticipation and excitement in their faces as we pulled into the Citi Field entrance. There were some avid and loyal Mets fans, as well as a few Yankee fans. Although the Mets lost 11-0, everyone had a great time watching the game from the upper deck.

Attention all students. The Green Team has been doing great things. Come to our next meeting in September 2018! 

Sustainability – Let’s garden 

  

      

  

 Spring is coming. Let’s garden! On Tuesday Jan 30, the Green Team of the school had it's first after school gardening activity, planting seeds 

To promote the sustainability, the Sustainability Committee of the school cooperates with Project EATS, organized the Green Team. To engage more students, and to make the activities more interest and productive, Ms. Broughton and Mr. Coppi are organizing a garden design competition. In addition, indoor plants will be made available. Preliminary feedback from teachers shows that more than half of classrooms will have indoor plants.    

For the first time, the school front yards will be planted with art design of different flowers. Many classrooms will have indoor plant decorations. We look forward to a more beautiful school building both outside and inside that contributes to more pleasing learning environment, and to sustainability of our community. 

  

Congratulations to Coach Thomas and the Double Dutch Team. TPS has done it again. We are the PSAL Double Dutch City Champs for the 6th year in a row! #doubledutch #citychamps #le6end

 

OneGoal I College Graduation. Period.

   

  

TPS has a slew of programs starting up this school year. We are proud to announce OneGoal as one of these programs. Under the advisory of Ms. Fundi (Cohort 1) and Ms. Fuller (Cohort 2), with the support of OneGoal staff, our 11th & 12th grade students will be getting a college ready experience unlike no other program available. Students begin their college exploration in the classroom and receive the support and advisory they need to:

  • develop the skills that will help increase their GPA and college entrance exam scores, which in turn increases acceptance rates into more selective post-secondary schools.
  • plan and sign up for important exams such as the PSAT and SAT
  • complete the FAFSA form
  • identify seven best-fit colleges.
  • develop the non-cognitive skills and mindsets needed to graduate from college
  • understand and put into practice OneGoal’s Leadership Principles: Ambition, Resourcefulness, Resilience, Professionalism, and Integrity
  • apply to at least seven best-fit colleges
  • enroll in a best-fit college
  • accomplish academic, financial, and social Steps to Success
  • enroll in the first day of sophomore year with the mastery of the skills, mindsets, and experience that will lead to college graduation

This is a three year program that will follow them through the start of their second year of college. For more information about OneGoal, please visit their website by clicking here.
