WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Girls Prep Lower East Side Middle School Families,
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Girls Prep Lower East Side Middle School! I am thrilled to lead the 5th-8th grade middle school campus of NYC's first all-girls, tuition free, public charter school in the vibrant and diverse Lower East Side community. I am also excited to lead alongside Rebekah Adamek, Principal of Girls Prep Lower East Side Elementary School. At Girls Prep, we know the impact of educating girls in our society and the positive impact they will make on the international community.
On behalf of our entire team, I’d like to thank you for partnering with us for what will be an incredible school year together. Thank you so much to families who have already participated in home visits or have taken the time to connect at greeting or dismissal; it’s been great having an opportunity to discuss all the ways we will, together, empower your daughters to realize our mission of building strong character, demonstrating critical thinking, possessing a core body of knowledge, and progressing on a predictive path toward college completion. We have all signed our Commitment to College Completion contracts and will work hard everyday to develop the scholarship, merit, responsibility, and sisterhood our girls need to thrive to and through college!
As many of you know, I have been at Girls Prep since the summer of 2011. I had the privilege of assuming the role of principal two years ago, and I am both excited and humbled to continue on in that role this school year.
Prioritizing our “3C’s” of College Completion, Common Core, and Character, our Girls Prep LES Middle School team and family has an unwavering focus on providing rigorous, differentiated instruction in core subjects such as reading, writing, math, science and social studies as well as physical education, health, theater, the visual arts, and foreign language. We are excited to continue to provide a rich assortment of after-school activities so scholars can extend and deepen their work with our 3C’s!
Looking forward to a great year together!
Lacy Reed, Principal
