It's up to the teacher whether or not you will be allowed to be in the room for the conference, but you can definitely come. Some teachers will even encourage you to come to hear feedback, and if your parents need you to translate, you will absolutely be able to do so.
Unfortunately, the "hole in the wall" shop closed just over a year ago. However, you can purchase drinks at Subway in the back; they have a separate counter for quick purchases like gum or bottles of water.
Stop by Ms. Pedrick's office on the second floor (room 222) and give it in there.
You'll need to put your OSIS on a lot of tests (especially standardized ones later on) and give it to club advisors, coaches, etc., so you should remember it.
I heard that the Big Sib handbook is not produced in print this year but is accessible online. Where can it be found?
Yes, they expire at the end of September after you graduate, so when the time comes, you'll want to transfer any important files out.
Yes! However, if you take SAT2s later there's a good chance you won't be able to get them in on time for early action/early decision, or even regular decision depending on when you take them. Each college is different so check those individually for more info, but in general you'd want to take them by September, or October in some cases.
Colleges look at your application and grades holistically and regents aren't a huge factor, so you definitely shouldn't stress about one regents grade.
How do we find out what our summer HW is? (for current freshmen/rising sophomores) Also, does AP World have homework?
You should receive an email from your teachers that give homework, and the AP history classes are usually the only classes that give summer homework for rising sophomores (including AP World).
It shouldn't be a big deal, just be sure to hand them in at Camp Stuy Part II.
Yes, it's yours to keep! However, you will need to buy a new locker next year if you want one, so you won't be able to save money that way.
Yes! Go to the floor of the AP of that textbook's subject and teachers should be set up with scanners to let you return that book.
Do we have to take both our hallway AND gym locker home? If I have a locker buddy, does only one of us take it home and the other has to buy their own new lock?
Only take home your gym lock if you're a junior (you keep it for three years). As for your locker buddy, you would both need to pay for a new lock next year anyway, so whoever needs a lock for outside of school can take it.
Take home your personal lock, and if you're a junior, also take home your gym lock.
You can go to Moran's office to find out your combo, and then you should take your lock home, because if not it'll get taken by him and you'll lose it.
My metrocard is no longer functional because of a minor scratch, so who I can ask to get a new card?
You can stop by the college office and fill out a form, and they'll have a new one for you within a few days.
If a senior science elective doesn't fulfill the senior elective requirement, wouldn't the senior electives just take up a period that would have been a language class in the previous years?
Technically yes, but if you decide to take a fourth-year of language (which many people do,) it wouldn't.
If I wait until senior year to take science electives, will they fulfill the science AND senior electives requirement?
It wouldn't fulfill both.
You can get 3; but it's something that, depending on your situation, you can talk to the College Office about and find a solution that works for you!
What do you do if your competitive swimmer and you're placed in swim gym? Will the teachers make you swim laps or will you do the same thing as everyone else?
It would be up to the teacher and how they choose to run the class; different swim teachers have different policies about it. For example, Ms. Choy lets the more advanced swimmers go to the deep side of the pool and do special tasks and demonstrations.
