50 North Lark co-principals meet future students
ALBANY, N.Y. (March
24, 2017) -- North
Albany Academy students in grades 5-7 who will be attending the new middle
school at 50 North Lark in September had their first opportunity to meet their
future co-principals Friday.
Veteran City School District of Albany
administrators Malik Jones and Kandie Antonetti will be serving as
co-principals of the new middle school, and will be visiting each of the
schools with grades moving to 50 North Lark. These visits are part of
their plan to help make the transition – both to middle school and to a
new building – as smooth as possible for students.
Aside from building the foundation of their
future relationships, providing information on the school and answering
questions, they will also be engaging students in the process of giving
a permanent title to the as-of-yet-unnamed facility.
While North Albany was the first stop on their
tour, Jones and Antonetti will be meeting with all of the students who
will attend the new middle school in the coming weeks. This includes
Philip Schuyler Elementary School’s fifth grade on April 5, Arbor Hill
Elementary School’s fifth and sixth grades on the morning of April 7 and
Sheridan Preparatory Academy’s fifth grade on the afternoon of April 7.
Jones and Antonetti also will meet with the seventh-graders at West Hill
