Congratulations To C.A.A.S. On Wining The Prestigious "Team High School Award!"
Nearly 400 people came out on April 28, 2017 to honor eight schools as Team High School Award winners. Approximately 19 special teachers were saluted as dynamic union leaders, outstanding activists and excellent educators at the 2017 Academic High Schools Awards Celebration at UFT headquarters in Manhattan.
Future in Focus: Exploring College and Careers
CAAS students joined our Union Rep, Ms. Caquias, at a fair in Manhattan. The fair exposed high school students to the world of college and careers. Presentations were given on an array of postsecondary opportunities and the benefits of work in organized labor. The students were given the opportunity to engage in these presentations and ask questions of current college students and young union workers.
On December 9th, CAAS students enrolled in the Trio college preparatory program went on a college tour to visit SUNY Binghamton and SUNY Orange. Students were able to tour the campus, sit in a lecture hall, see the variety of dorm rooms and even eat at the Binghamton dining hall overlooking the ice covered mountains. It was amazing to witness our students see first hand where they could end up. College became real to them the moment they set foot on campus. Students were excited to tell their classmates about their experience and influence others to push themselves.
