Jackson Heights, NY – Last weekend, leaders from Stuyvesant High School hosted a Parent Workshop for Bengali families at Khan’s Tutorial’s SAT & Regents Center. The workshop, lead by Ms. Casey J. Pedrick, Assistant Principal & Pupil Personnel Services and Ms. Dina Ingram, Director of Family Engagement was intended to help families understand Stuyvesant coursework, maximize parent resources and tools, and navigate the college application process. Parents were able to ask Stuyvesant teachers and guidance counselors questions and hear from Stuyvesant students and alumnus about their high school experience. Khan’s Tutorial provided space for the event as well as translation services for attendees.
“We’re thrilled to have the leaders of one of the best high schools in the world travel to Khan’s Tutorial in Jackson Heights, Queens to dedicate their time on the weekend and provide support for parents in our community. Its amazing how much the community has grown to achieve. We look forward to hosting many more similar parent workshops with Stuyvesant and other top NYC high schools. Happy Mother’s Day too all of our dedicated mothers this weekend!” said Dr. Ivan Khan CEO & President.
