ou Y g n i h t y r e v E Need to Know for ! l o o h c S o t Back BullHorn Fall 2013 1


Letter from the Head of School Welcome to the 2013-14 School Year! to be partners in the Léman Manhattan community. An important part of preparation includes reflection on the past school year. With the feedback from the Parent Experience Survey in mind, the following goals have been set and will be realized in the new school year: • Continued growth in the reputation of our school. Great things are happening at Léman Manhattan and we need to share the good news with all of New York. Renewed energy and efforts will be put into the areas of marketing, communications and admissions while we fully understand that parents, faculty and students are the most effective and important ambassadors of our school.

Dear Members of the Léman Manhattan Community, It is a great pleasure to welcome you back to Léman Manhattan and the 2013-2014 school year! Whether you are a new community member or a returning one, the start of school always promises a welcomed routine and the excitement of a new beginning. The faculty and staff have been working collaboratively and diligently throughout the summer to prepare for the weeks and months ahead. Our new faculty is an extremely talented and enthusiastic group and is joining an equally impressive returning staff. With such an excellent student body, supportive families, and talented professionals, this year promises to be an outstanding one. We are all fortunate

• Increased World Language offerings. An international school demands a robust world language program to prepare its students for global citizenship. The Léman Manhattan world language program expands this year with the addition of Mandarin in PK-3 and PK-4 and the requirement of two world languages, in addition to English, for high school graduation. Arabic has been added to the Upper School curriculum as another world language option. • Focused college counseling. With the graduation of our first senior class and an impressive list of college acceptances, the high school college counseling program will offer ever more opportunities to better prepare students for acceptances into their top choice colleges. • Increased academic rigor. In our final year as an International Baccalaureate candidate school, Léman Manhattan anticipates becoming fully authorized to offer the IB Diploma Program beginning in September 2014. In preparation for the rigorous IB curriculum, the Léman Manhattan vertical curriculum teams will ensure that the PK-3

through Grade 12 curriculum is articulated to make sure that students are prepared for the challenges and regards of the IB diploma. While this survey is a key part of our feedback process and conducted on an annual basis; please do not wait to offer feedback on how we are doing throughout the coming year as our doors are always open to you. Education is a true partnership and frequent, substantive communication among all community members makes it even stronger. In the next few weeks, please take advantage of all the activities heralding this new year, including the Open House on September 9, Back to School Carnival on September 21, Curriculum Nights and our first ever Personal Learning Plan (PLP) Conferences. The start of the year is the prime time to establish the positive relationships with the adults in your child’s life and initiate a yearlong communications link. As we begin our journey, this edition of the BullHorn is designed to provide important information about the year ahead and to serve as a convenient reference for the new school year. So it is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you home to Léman Manhattan Preparatory School and 2013-14 school year. I look forward to growing with you via the Léman Manhattan experience and seeing you at the school events. You are always welcome at Léman Manhattan. With great anticipation and partnership,

Drew Alexander, Head of School

Léman Manhattan’s Upper School Partners with Imagine Swimming

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School is pleased to announce a partnership with Imagine Swimming, New York City’s largest learn-to-swim program and one of the most respected swimming schools in the world. Imagine instructors look forward to helping deliver a world-class swimming education to Léman students. The Imagine staff will work closely with Léman Manhattan’s Aquatics Director Peter DeNoble in implementing an aquatics curriculum at Léman’s Morris Street pool. To learn more about the swim program and the partnership, we sat down with Peter. Why is swimming an important part of the overall curriculum at Léman Manhattan? Swimming should be a core element of every education. It’s not only a life-saving skill, but also a sport that truly develops and engages students’ minds and bodies. As one

of the only prep schools in the city with two swimming pools on our campuses, we think of our pools as both classrooms and athletic facilities, where Léman students are challenged mentally and physically. What is Léman Manhattan hoping to achieve by partnering with Imagine Swimming? We are hoping to enhance our program by joining up with what has become the gold standard for swimming education in New York City. Imagine was founded in 2002, and for the last eleven years they’ve developed a terrific reputation among parents throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn for delivering quality-swimming instruction. By forging a partnership with a swim school like Imagine, we feel confident that Léman students will experience swimming in exciting ways that will really lead them to embrace the sport.

How will the Imagine Swimming instructors work with the middle and high school students? At the Morris Street pool, they will be leading the swimming component of our Physical Education classes for both our middle school and high school students. I think our students will thrive learning from Imagine’s diverse and highly experienced team of instructors. What do you anticipate will be the benefits of having this partnership? Welcoming Imagine to the pool will allow us to have more instructors on the deck per lesson and could open the door for our more experienced swimmers to compete for Imagine’s competitive club team, the Manhattan Makos - a team that currently features some of the top ranked swimmers not only in the city, but in the United States.

Léman’s Dynamic Duo

S

taff, families and students are thrilled to welcome Sarah (Feldman) Polland and Colleen Brown into their new roles of Head of Upper School and Assistant Head of Upper School, respectively. Both women have been members of the Léman Manhattan family since day one and have more than eight years of experience working together. “I am extremely excited that both Sarah and I are working together to support the entire Upper School,” says Brown. “It is not separated by divisions, and I am confident that we will continue to build a strong team dynamic between the High School and Middle School, and strengthen the quality of education.” In their new roles, both Polland and Brown are able to expand upon their experience, expertise and passion. “I will be working to support teachers so they have all of the resources they need to provide students with a quality education,” says Brown, adding, “I am excited about this opportunity because it will also provide me with the opportunity to connect with all students, rather than just those that enter my classroom.” Polland agrees, saying “I will definitely be 8

very involved with students and very visible in classrooms and supporting students and teachers so that they are successful as individuals in an academic setting and in their personal growth.” Both Polland and Brown support the idea of significant and smart administrative involvement. “I don’t intend to sit in my office behind closed doors,” says Polland, “I want to be involved with students and have ongoing dialogues that help them to be engaged students. I think that collaborative culture among students, parents and teachers is what makes us special.” Polland and Brown have extensive experience working together, and both are looking forward to their new partnership. According to Brown, “What makes us a good team is that we are both working toward the same goal- do what’s best for the students so that they can receive a quality education that allows them to grow and develop into happy, healthy and positive contributors to society.” Polland calls upon their balance and understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses as what makes them a strong team. “To say [Brown] is a team player is an

understatement. I just think we’re a great duo- at times she fills certain roles and at other times I do. The fact that we’ve both been in the classroom gives us a great understanding of what it means to be a teacher. Our long-standing relationship allows us to have a positive and powerful professional relationship,” she says. Obviously, both leaders have a strong passion for Léman Manhattan. “We understand how each other communicates and we see eye to eye on what the best interests are of the students, parents and teachers and we understand what it means to be supportive of our community,” says Polland.


Léman Says Cheerio from Oxford’s Balliol College Each summer, Meritas Family of Schools offers a unique and exciting program at Balliol College, Oxford University, entitled “Meeting the Challenges of Democracy.” This summer four Léman Manhattan Students attended. The cohort included senior MJ Carpio, junior and international student Annalena Wolcke, junior Alex Dula, and junior Leo Gitelman. “I chose to attend the Oxford Seminar because I’m interested in how countries reach a point of ‘democracy’ - the processes, mechanisms,” said Carpio. “Democracy is such a complex topic that many people in the United States take for granted because it’s already such a strong tradition there. I wanted to learn more about other countries that are struggling or are fighting to get to a ‘democratic’ state. I also knew that people from all over the globe would be attending and I’m always open to different opinions and stories, especially if they’re from circumstances that are different from my own.” Students participated in a two-week seminar that addressed perennial and contemporary issues that test the strengths and limits of democracy in its various forms around the world.

While participating in this program, students also had the rare opportunity to meet with Oxford admission staff and undergraduates to discuss life and admissions at Balliol College, one of the oldest and largest of Oxford’s colleges (established in 1263). In addition, students enjoyed regular trips and enriching activities in the afternoons, evenings, and on the weekends. Past activities and excursions included visits to historical, architectural, and cultural landmarks in Oxford, London, and the neighboring countryside; boat rides down the Thames; and theatre productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company. “I loved exploring the streets and shops of Oxford and London. Visiting the British Museum, the Parliament House, Windsor Castle were all cool,” said Carpio. “We also visited Bath where we got to explore the ancient Roman bathhouses. And of course, none of this would have been as enjoyable if it weren’t for the people I got to visit them with.”

Distinguished lecturers from Oxford University, as well as high-profile guest speakers from relevant fields, presented compelling case studies and led mini-seminars on democratic theory and the cultural challenges of instituting democracy in non-Western countries.

Technology

Léman Manhattan’s Technology innovations

In the age of smart phones, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, and tablets, Léman Manhattan’s Information and Communciation Technology Department (ICT) will launch new strategies for engaging Léman’s ever-connected student body while ensuring a focus on a top-notch education in the 2013-14 school year. “Technology is integrated into all of our lives and our students need the skills that will help them create, collaborate and communicate in our digital world,” said Maria Narciso, Director of ICT. New this year, all students from PreK-3 to 12th Grade will have access to laptops and iPads equipped with apps that support all curricular areas by grade level and subject. The Lower School will have dedicated classroom iPads as well as access to laptop carts. The Upper School students will have access to iPads and laptops from shared carts. Students in the 5th and 8th Grades will have access to a dedicated school issued iPad, as part of a pilot program that will ultimately expand to the entire school. Since last year, students in the high school have been encouraged to bring in their own personal devices to use throughout the day. “Students will have immediate access to information. They’ll be able to: present a newly-found solution to a problem in realtime to classmates; collaborate in groups locally or globally; work on interactive applications for hands-on learning; and above all have mobility for anytime, anywhere learning,” said Narciso.

The integration of this technology will allow teachers to help students become creators of information not just receivers. Teachers will act as facilitators of learning and technology mentors and coaches. Even the furniture will be conducive to a mobile environment with increased outlets and space to set up each device. “We have acquired unique technology to support specific subject areas, including the sciences and arts such as science probes and 3D printers so students become inventors, producers and artists with real-world applications,” said Narciso.

And according Narciso, personal devises are just the beginning. In the Upper School, ICT plans to establish a Léman Learning Commons that will meld library resources, printed and electronic. It will provide comfortable, mobile spaces for collaboration among the Léman Community of faculty, staff, students, and parents. In addition, the Léman Learning Commons includes a quiet room, display areas for student work, a TV displaying the news, a portable Smart Board, movable walls and much more.

“We need to prepare students with 21st century skills critical to be successful in the digital world and beyond,” said Narciso.

Transportation to Léman Manhattan Being conveniently located in the heart of the Financial District allows many of our families to walk to campus. For our students living outside a walkable distance or during inclement weather, there are a variety of options for commuting to school, including public and private bussing and the subway.

MetroCards for the Subway and City Buses With more than 6 subway lines converging at both the 41 Broad Street and 1 Morris campuses, public transportation is a terrific option. Students who live in New York City are eligible for a full fare MetroCard, depending on their age and distance from Léman Manhattan. Please note that the Department of Education has guidelines. To learn more visit their website at http://schools.nyc.gov (under Offices & Programs -> Transportation).

The Yellow Bus

A Private Bus

Provided by the New York City Department of Education (DOE), the “Yellow Bus” is a standard, large school bus. There is no charge to use this bus and it is open to all New York City children from Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Parents can find pick-up locations and times on the DOE’s website.

Additionally, Léman Manhattan contracts with a private bus company called Selby Transportation Corp. For a fee, Selby will setup a bus stop near your home. This bus is a smaller yellow bus and also contains a matron to provide extra care of the students. Students from grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12th Grade can ride this bus. The bus is exclusive to Léman Manhattan students.

To sign up for the Yellow Bus, simply e-mail Gregory Schatz (g.schatz@lemanmanhattan. org) stating that you would like to sign-up for the bus and he will inform you of the closest stop and estimated pick-up and drop-off times. Keep in mind the DOE allows a student to ride the bus or receive a MetroCard. You may not receive both.

Each morning, our faculty and staff meet both the Selby and Yellow Bus on the corner of Broad and Beaver and walk the students to campus. In the afternoon, faculty and staff walk students back to the bus stop. If you have any question or would like to register for one of the aforementioned options, please contact Greg Schatz at g.schatz@lemanmanhattan.org or 212-2320266 x359.

It is critical that students be in class on time every day. Arrival after the start of school is to be reported as lateness. Teachers have the right to encourage timeliness and provide appropriate consequences for tardi-

ness to their classes. Lateness to class for any reason other than one excused by a Léman Manhattan faculty member or administrator will count as one-third of an “absence”. Three times late to class will be considered a full absence. If, as result of lateness, there is diminished time to complete an in-class exercise, the student is NOT entitled to a make-up of this lost time.

Léman Manhattan School Uniforms At Léman Manhattan, we believe that uniforms create a sense of ambassadorship and loyalty; equalize student dress so students will not be known by what they wear but by who they are; de-stress the daily routine of choosing the appropriate attire; build a sense of

community spirit in the students; and encourage a sense of proprietary and discipline. The only exceptions to the uniform guidelines are on Dress Down Days and Dress Days. On Dress Down Days, if students participate in the charitable drive on that day, they will not be required to wear their uniforms.

All uniforms should be ordered from Lands’ End at www.landsend.com. Click on the “School Uniforms” link and follow the instructions for downloading the Léman Manhattan Preparatory School catalogue. If you have any questions regarding uniform, please contact the Lower/Upper School office.

Health Policy for Léman Manhattan Students

By Rachel Weinberg, R.N. and Sharon Windisch, R.N.

Health forms and immunization records must be in school by the first day of school. The New York State Department of Health’s mandated regulations state that students will not be permitted to attend school without providing their health records.

Welcome back to another safe, healthy and happy year at Léman! Thank you for all your help keeping the Léman community healthy. By following the guidelines of our health policy we will all be working together to keep our children safe and healthy. ILLNESS To reduce the spread of illness please keep your children home when they are ill. A child may return to school after being fever-free for 24 hours without the use of Motrin (Ibuprofen, Advil) or Tylenol (Acetaminophen). Children may return to school after a 24 hour period without vomiting or diarrhea. Students may not attend school when they have a communicable disease until

they have received treatment and provide medical clearance. Please call the nurse’s office when your child has a communicable disease (Strep Throat, Pink Eye, Chicken Pox etc.) so that other parents can be informed and be alert to symptoms in their own children. Please reinforce good hygienic practices with your children to help them stay healthy and lessen the spread of germs. Please encourage your children to cover their noses and mouths with the crook of the elbow (when they do not have a tissue) when they cough or sneeze. Children are encouraged to wash hands often with soap and water (or to use hand sanitizer), especially after coughing or sneezing.

FIRST AID PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SWIMMING CLASS Please provide a written note or an email (preferable) to the school nurse if you plan to excuse your child from a physical education or swimming class for illness or injury. If a class must be missed for more than 1 day due to illness or injury, please provide a doctor’s note. Please be aware that at the Upper School level, unexcused absences for physical education and swimming will affect your child’s grade.

Parents must provide the nurse with an Epi-pen (if needed due to their child’s severe allergies) to be kept in the nurse’s office and an Epi-pen to be kept in the child’s classroom (Lower School only).

Lower School students must keep their asthma medications in the nurse’s office. No medications are allowed to be kept by the student in their backpack. If you have a unique situation where this might be necessary please discuss this with the school

ited on school premises. Please give your child their after school snack after you have left the building. Likewise, all class parties, events, class trips, and school bus rides must be nut free. Please do not bring any foods other than those listed on the “Nut Free Foods List” of permissible foods (which is found on the Léman website). We do not allow latex in the school which means the kitchen and nurse’s office are latex free. We ask that parents not bring in latex balloons (Mylar balloons are fine). Due to animal allergies, no furry animals are allowed on the premises. Please do not bring your dogs into the building or even the lobby. LICE A lice company comes to the school three times a year to check all students for lice and lice eggs (at the start of school, after winter break and after spring break). If a child has been found to have lice or lice eggs the child must be picked up from school and be treated. All students who have had lice or lice eggs must report to the nurse’s office in the morning for a head check before they return to class. Please inform the school nurse if your child has had lice or lice eggs in their hair before they return to school. We all want to do everything we can to make school a safe and healthy place for your children. We know this requires a good deal of effort on your part and we appreciate your help. Please do not hesitate to contact your school nurse with any questions or concerns. We look forward to another safe and healthy year!

The school nurse must receive a medication authorization form signed by a physician (or the physician’s order on a prescription pad) so that she will be able to administer prescription medications to a student in school. All medication should be given to the nurse in its original container with its original labeling. Pills brought to the nurse’s office in plastic bags will not be administered.

Léman Manhattan Graduates First Class

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School celebrated a significant milestone on June 1 with the graduation of its inaugural senior class. Wall Street analyst and “Humanitarian of the Year,” Luanne Zurlo, Founder and President of the Worldfund, delivered the keynote address. Her inspiring words encouraged the members of the Class of 2013 to always follow their passions. Senior Sam Sherman, who is heading to Duke University, gave the student address, which emphasized the importance of hard work and perseverance. “The class of 2013 has defined the Léman spirit – they have instilled a legacy of academic excellence, international-mindedness, and dedication to community that sets the tone for future generations at Lé-

man,” says Drew Alexander, Head of School. “We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our seniors and are honored to partner with Luanne Zurlo in initiating such an important annual tradition.” As Léman Manhattan students return to the walls of 41 Broad and 1 Morris, the 20 graduates will be heading to their top choice universities, including University of Pennsylvania, Duke, Johns Hopkins, College of William and Mary, Parsons The New School for Design, and the American University of Paris, among others. The ceremony started many new traditions including the introduction of the Alma Mater, which was sung for the first time by the graduates and faculty in attendance. The lyrics were written by Lower School parent A. Meyerson and set to “Annie Lisle,” a

popular 1857 ballad by H. S. Thompson. Following the ceremony, graduates, their family and friends, and faculty and staff met at the Upper School balcony for a reception and the new traditional cake cutting. “We’ve all grown up together. It feels like saying good-bye to family,” said Student Government President Mikayla Barnett, who will be attending UPenn in the fall. The first graduates truly were pioneers and we all wish them well in their future.

As more and more summer camps pop up, Camp Léman continued to grow this summer. With more than 200 campers, Camp Léman touted campers from around the world including Brazil, China, India and Australia. While enrollment from Léman Manhattan students remained equal to last year, nonLéman student enrollment grew by more than 20 percent. “I think it’s wonderful to have campers come in from all over the city and the world,” said Steve Levin, Director of Afterschool Programs and Camp Léman. “It opens a whole new network of friends to our Léman Manhattan students and increases their diversity of interactions when they are meeting other children from around the globe.”

With so many choices available to families in the summer, it’s important to remember that camp is a great opportunity for development and education. “Camp needs to have a certain level of expertise among the staff, and ideally variety within the day and week. This includes a lot of socialization with other children, and also attention to social development in making new friendships, developing self-esteem and taking risk in a safe environment,” Levin says.

To keep camp fresh and exciting for returning campers Levin adds new programing each year. This year he added a couple of new programs including the Lego and Pre-Robotics program, where students worked in teams to create motorized Ferris wheels, cars, and other motorized objects. He also added Pop camps; summer in variety much so There is Fit, a high-energy fitness program that will beever than flexibility more have families also be making an appearance in after school Camp of strength a as saw Levin fore.

Creative Summer Course

his summer, Léman Manhattan opened up new pathways to education through its Creative Writing summer school course. The pilot two-week class focused on creative writing and expression. Zara Zuckerman, Upper School English Teacher, was thrilled to teach the Writing Creatively course. “It was a perfect fit for those two weeks- lots of reading, writing, and creating new, short pieces of work,” she says.

According to Zuckerman, the experience was as beneficial and rewarding for her as it was for her students.

or four weeks this summer, Léman Manhattan Prep hosted The Oliver Scholars Program, a rigorous program designed to provide support to highly motivated students of African American and Latino descent from New York City. The goal of the Oliver Program is to provide NYC’s Black and Latino youth with greater access to education opportunities within Independent Schools through academic and social support and positive reinforcement throughout the admissions process and prep school career.

Opening Up with Oliver

Tahrieq Koonce, a first-year Oliver Scholar, has been spending his summer engrossed in the Summer Immersion Program, or SIP, a five-week, full-time education and enrichment course. As he is a rising freshman who has been accepted into an independent school, his program focusses on Algebra II, Geometry, English, History, Introductory Biology and Introductory Physics. For him, Oliver has been “phenomenal. [In Oliver], they teach you that the sky is the limit,” he says. Being a scholarship-based program, Oliver is highly competitive, as Koonce explains. “Eight hundred people are nominated, 300 are invited to open houses and 125 go through interviews. Of those 125, 50 are selected to go through summer immersion and then a select few are chosen for the placement process- 38 in my program. Thirty-six out of 38 were accepted in my class, it was a very successful class. ”

worthiness, respect, just to name a few, and those align with the values of the program,” says Koonce. Additionally, he says “[Giving back] is one of the main things that Oliver instills in you- the aspect of service. I will always come back and give to Oliver and I want to give back to my community.”

One of the greatest benefits of the program is the close relationship scholars form with their counselors and mentors. “They help you with mock interviews, schedule your appointments, and support you throughout the process…they want you to succeed. It’s a very supportive atmosphere,” says Koonce.

Koonce is passionate about and engaged in his education, and for that, he credits The Oliver Scholars Program. He is excited to see where academics will take him in the future. “I hope to study aeronautical engineering at MIT,” he says. And we wish him the best.

The Oliver Scholars Program aims to provide a warm and welcoming community for its scholars to develop. Koonce says, “My favorite part is the sense of family. At my public school, I was chastised for the way I talk or act- I dress too preppy. At Oliver, no one judges you, everyone is friends. It’s such a warm, welcoming community…I refer to Oliver as my family.”

Teachers, guidance counselors or community-based organizations nominate students when they are in seventh grade. Because of its highly selective nature, only one out of every five candidates is invited to join the Oliver Scholars Program. Oliver has helped to graduate more than 800 African American and Latino students from top independent high schools and universities. Since its inception in 1984, 97.6% of Oliver Scholars have matriculated to college, three times the national rate for African Americans and four times the rate for Hispanic Americans. Eighty-six percent of Oliver

The program also places a strong emphasis on giving back and supporting the community in which many of the scholars come from. “Today in class we discussed our values. Students talked about honesty, trust-

About The Oliver Scholars Program

Scholars attend Top Colleges and Universities as ranked by US News & World Report, and 34.6% attend Ivy League universities. Upon graduation, each class of Oliver Scholars will have completed more than 6,000 community service hours. According to the program’s statistics, the Oliver Scholar is typically within the top 10% of his or her class and an active member of his or her school and home communities. Sixty-six percent of Oliver Scholars have parents who never attended college and 49% come from single parent families, nearly 25% of which receive public assistance or disability income. Around 60% of applicants come from low-income households. The goal of The Oliver Scholars Program is to “prepare our target population of Black and Latino 7th graders from poor, working class, and middle class families, to embrace the challenge of learning at the accelerated pace expected of them by the finest Independent Schools,” (Program Description, Oliver website). John Hoffman founded The Oliver Scholars Program in 1984 in honor of Dr. Albert G. Oliver, an educator and activist within the New York City public school community.
