A Note About FOMSC Newsletters

Dear MSC Families, 

It has been brought to our attention that those of you reading our newsletters on mobile devices and tablets are unable to use the internal links. At this time that is a service that is not currently provided by the company that powers the FOMSC website. They are, however, working on it and hope to have those links working on mobile devices soon!

Until then, know that all of the information in our newsletters is presented in the same order as the links to help make it easier to find as you scroll. If you would prefer to read the FOMSC newsletters on our website, please click on the "Having trouble reading this email?" link here or above. 

Thank you for your patience, 

Liz Green & Rachel Phillippe

FOMSC Co-Secretaries

Roads to Success Elementary Program Survey

Hello Folks,

We have been in talks for a possible return to MSC for our Elementary participants. The survey link below will help us in creating a modified program that focuses on Safety, Program Content and Program Design. Please take a moment to fill out the survey.

This has been a challenging School Year for our shared Communities. RTS is working hard behind the scene to support MSC in anyway we can.

We hope to see everyone soon.

Be Kind Be Safe

Best,

Daniel Garcia

Middle School Report Cards


  • Report cards will be accessible using your NYC Schools Account beginning on November 3. Most families have been registered and can access the account here: https://mystudent.nyc/

  • For assistance with your account, contact our parent coordinator, Malaka Banks (MBanks5@schools.nyc.gov).

It has come to our attention that grades missing from some students report cards.  We believe that this is a technical glitch with the DOE information systems.  We are working on resolving this issue. 

In the meantime

  • We will provide "Cohort A" with a paper copy of their report card on Tuesday, November 10, during advisory
  • We will provide "Cohort B" with a paper with a paper copy of their report card on Thursday, November 12, during advisory
  • Malaka will email a PDF report card to all "Cohort D" families between Monday, November 9 and Thursday, November 12

Thank you for your understanding,

MSC Administration
