TOAST celebrates Pi Day

with Pi(e) the Principals Day

Two principals took it on the chin – and in the nose and eyes – on March 15 when Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology (TOAST) celebrated “Pi(e) the Principals Day.”

 

To be exact, some 440 students earned the right to smoosh whipped-cream pies into the faces Principal Teresa Brown and Assistant Principal Katie Stalker.

 

The occasion for celebration was two-fold: Thursday was Pi Day (an important holiday in a STEM-themed elementary school) and almost every student in the school had met their behavior expectations for the month. (MORE)

 

Resolving conflict without violence:

Two schools get lessons from experience

Three people. Three experiences of unthinkable personal loss and suffering. Three stories about forgiveness.

 

Students at Tony Clement Center for Education and Edmund J. O’Neal Middle School of Excellence heard March 12 from a man paralyzed by a gang-related shooting at age 15, a mother whose son committed suicide at age 16 and the sister of a man who died of a drug overdose at age 24.

 

Their message: Forgive the unforgivable. (MORE)

 

From the superintendent:

In response to the report of the New York State Attorney General’s Office, the City School District of Albany has reaffirmed its commitment to changing discipline practices and procedures that have perpetuated disproportionate suspension rates for black students and students with disabilities.

Please visit our Assurance of Discontinuance section to read more, and to find out how to contact the chief ombudsperson if you have complaints about student discipline.
