The Dog Days of Summer are almost here…
As we move through June and into the last few weeks of 2020–21 school year, New York City public schools are hard at work wrapping up the lessons and the schoolwork of the past nine months. And for the fifth, eighth, and twelfth grade students of the Class of 2021, June is especially meaningful, as this month marks the end of their journeys through elementary, middle, and high school, respectively. Indeed, for these students, June is a time for reflection, planning ahead, and super cute “keep in touch” messages.
Beyond the last day of school on June 25, this month’s calendar features four State Regents exam dates, virtual seminars regarding the next steps in the high school admissions process, and digital events celebrating students’ talents and work.
So without further ado, here’s a look at what’s happening in NYC public schools this month, courtesy of our official 2020–2021 NYC Public Schools Calendar.
