They'll keep on mentioning that book twenty years from now! [Jan. 29th, 2010|04:37 pm]

A few days old now, but still - GothamSchools.org headline: 'Magical wunderkind lobbyist Micah Lasher gets promoted'

And then in the article - "Lasher is a cheerfully hard-working graduate of Stuyvesant High School who once warred with his principal as editor of the Stuy Spectator and the author of a book of magic tricks."

The official press release wording is "Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today announced the appointment of Micah C. Lasher as Director of State Legislative Affairs. As Director, Lasher will be responsible for leading the Administration's State legislative agenda, relations with the Office of the Governor and State legislators and preparing the Administration's response to and negotiation of all proposed State legislation impacting New York City."

Some random sightings [Jan. 20th, 2010|03:43 pm]

My boyfriend sent me this video by Billy Eichner (with Rachel Dratch from SNL):



Stuyvesant references start at 2:35.

Speaking of beating up kids from Bronx Science, the New York Times is doing a Q&A with Clara Hemphill about New York City high schools, and predictably a bunch of the questions deal with specialized high schools, and it starts off with the usual competitiveness.

arsonist update [Nov. 26th, 2009|11:36 am]

Maybe I shouldn't be so amused, but I am:
Investigators are hunting for a copycat firebug at Stuyvesant High School - where fires continue to be set even though a student arrested for arson last week isn't there.

And the new culprit apparently thinks he's a genius.

"I'm smart enough - you can't catch me," read a note left at one of the fires, according to FDNY sources. Another note appeared to be in hieroglyphics.

Firestarter found

It looks like they may have caught the guy who started the fires. When did they start putting up cameras in the bathrooms? Or are they talking about cameras in the hallways?

From the City Room blog at the New York Times:

A fire broke out in a third-floor bathroom of Stuyvesant High School in TriBeCa on Friday morning. The school has been cleared, and so far no injuries have been reported, a spokesman for the Fire Department said.

More here, including some comments from the peanut gallery...

I'm doing some social science research. I have a short survey that I need from as many people as possible. I'd appreciate it if you took it.

Thank you.

Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone, but, in the New York Post's special NYC's Best High Schools pull-out section included with last Sunday's issue, Stuy is ranked number 1. The section doesn't appear to be available online, but here is the cover, with a photo of a scene most of us probably remember pretty well, and then, the actual ranking/profile.

Of course, this means nothing whatsoever...but it's still kinda nice!

Frank McCourt Dies at 78

Wow, I totally didn't see this coming. Apparently he had been suffering from melanoma and died from complications of meningitis. I didn't have him as a teacher but he did come speak to my creative writing class as a guest speaker. I hope they make some kind of memorial in Stuy for McCourt.
