Planning with our students for Friday activities

Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School students who would like to participate in the school's activities related to the National School Walkout on Friday will have opportunities to sign up during their lunch periods Thursday and during school breakfast Friday.

Students must sign up in advance at one of these times to be able to participate in the school's activities Friday.

Principal Jennifer Chatain and her staff have been working together with student leaders from the Myers Allies group to plan activities for Friday afternoon during eighth period. Please click here to read a letter that Chatain sent home with all students Wednesday.


"It is our goal to ensure that these activities are both appropriate within the context of national events, and safe for our entire school community," Chatain said. "We value these opportunities to provide all of our students educational experiences that help them learn to advocate for the social and civic topics they value, both now and in the future." 

Please note that if you do not want your child to participate in Friday afternoon’s activities you can contact Assistant Principal Lisa House by 10 a.m. Friday at (518) 475-6425 or lhouse@albany.k12.ny.us.
