It is with great honor and excitement that I write you this letter of introduction as the new Interim Acting Principal of 10X118.
For three years I have proudly served as the principal of J.H.S. 118 with every intention to spend the next several years serving our community in this role. Over the past few months, I was an active participant in the NYCDOE’s superintendent’s interviewing process. It was incredibly rigorous that included town hall meetings with community members and interviews with district stakeholders.

On behalf of our J.H.S. 118 teachers and staff, I want to thank all families for their continued support over the past few years. It is important for us (teachers and staff) to work in partnership with you (families) in the interest of all J.H.S. 118 students. As we end the year, there are a number of activities that have been planned to recognize the many students who have made positive contributions to our school community. We also want to acknowledge those students who have demonstrated continuous improvement since the school year began in September.
On Monday, March 28th, we will recognize students whose first semester academic achievement earned them a place on the Principal’s Honor Roll. Students on the Principal’s Honor Roll have earned a cumulative average of 90%. These students did not receive a grade below 90% in a course for the first semester. I welcome families to attend this event with their child.
I am pleased to share that face coverings will be optional for students beginning Monday, March 7th. To maintain the safety of staff and students, we will continue to practice strict COVID-19 protocols, including increased ventilation, daily health screening, and test kit distribution. Wearing a face covering will become optional indoors, outside, and on school buses. Anyone who chooses to wear a mask may continue to do so, and your child may request a mask at morning entry if they need one.
