Dear parents and guardians,
I would like to welcome all parents and students to this new school year (2022-2023) and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Israa Abdelrahman, I am the new parent coordinator here at Aviation High School. I look forward to working with you and to address all your questions and concerns regarding your child’s educational journey as well as creating a welcoming environment for all.
My role as a parent coordinator is to be the connecting link between the school and the child’s family. I serve as a facilitator – to bridge the gap between teachers, parents and students, and to help you find answers to the questions that you may be confronted with during the school year. My goal is to make it easier for you to resolve issues at the school level and to help you find the information and services you need to help your child.
During the school year we will be having workshops and meetings that are worthwhile for the parents. Any recommendations for helpful workshops or topics that interest you would definitely be encouraged and taken into consideration.
When a child enters High School they strongly believe that their parent’s supervision is no longer needed. However, this stage of their educational journey is the most important step. It is the step that determines their future. Therefore, at this age and stage of your child’s life, parental involvement, both in school and at home, is more important than ever. The mere act of getting involved in your child’s school makes a world of difference!
The best methods of communication that our school agreed on are Email, Google Classroom, Phone Calls, and Jump Rope.
I can be found in The Counseling Suite, Room 135

NYPL has FREE online tutoring & FREE books do download!!!
Free Online Tutoring for Students - Through the New York Public Library, students can receive one-on-one free online homework help from one-on-one tutors, daily from 2–11 PM. Tutors are available in English and Spanish, from early elementary through high school grades, in core subject areas. Video content and other resources are also available 24 hours a day. Families will need a New York Library card to access this service and can apply for a card here.
The New York Public Library has an app that allows anyone with a library card (and an iOS or Android phone) to "borrow" any of the 300,000 e-books in the collection. It's called SimplyE and will allow you to read books on your phone, but beware, there might be a wait list for some popular titles, including the Game of Thrones series. (Check out the Harry Potter books, quick!)
There is a limit of three books that you can borrow because there has been a surge in the app's usage now that we're all at home, according to the library.
You can also search the library's collection of 800,000 digitized items, including historic prints, photographs, maps, and manuscripts, and check out Mango Languages and Career Cruising with your New York City library card.
