At Margaretville Central School, we encourage students to meet the highest academic standards possible. Advanced science courses, like Chemistry and Physics, are important as they are part of the requirements for a student to graduate with an Advanced Designation Regents’ Diploma. The summer administration of the Chemistry Regents’ Examination will take place on Wednesday, August 16th, at 8:30 in the morning. This exam will be given at Margaretville Central School and will give students who studied Chemistry this year another opportunity to improve the grade they received on the June exam.

We know that students will have a strong chance for success if there is targeted instruction over the summer months. As a result, we are offering summer review sessions. Mrs. Evette Garofolo will have two meetings per week, beginning on Thursday, July 13th from 9 - 11 a.m. During that session, Mrs. Garafolo will set up a calendar with students that will encompass the remainder of the summer leading up to the Regents’ Examination on August 16th.

After Thursday’s class, we will post the review session calendar on our school’s website. All participating students will receive a copy of the dates and times for these important sessions. We strongly encourage your son/daughter to attend as many of these meetings as is possible to insure the most comprehensive preparation for this important exam.

We value your student’s efforts in meeting this standard and we appreciate your support as we help them prepare for the Chemistry Regents’ Examination. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Laura Norris, at: 586-2647 ext. 22.
