TUXEDO, N.Y. (Jan. 25, 2016) — Students interested in transferring to the Tuxedo STEM Academy at George F. Baker High School are invited to register for the school’s Feb. 8 “Tornado for a Day” Program.
“Students will experience a typical day at Baker,” said Principal Jason Schrammel. “You’ll be accompanied by a Tuxedo ambassador throughout your visit which includes visiting classes, meeting students and faculty and dining with students.”
Schrammel said the program would be extremely useful because it gives prospective students a real and honest look at a normal Baker day.
“We want to show new students all the great things at Tuxedo,” said Schrammel. “This small school environment does make a positive difference in the success of all of us here.”
Parents will drop off visiting students at the building’s entrance where they will be greeted by ambassadors and faculty members who will escort them during their visit.
A complimentary lunch will be provided.
The daylong event runs from 8 a.m. to 2:50 p.m. Students should arrive at 7:50 a.m.
Reservations must be made no later than Feb. 3.
