AFCHES Families,

As April draws to a close and Spring is finally here, we have a few fun announcements to make.

This Friday, we have a Dress-Up As Your Favorite teacher day and 4th grade career day! Coming up in May, we have a 1st grade reading and math workshop, a REACH Assembly, and an upcoming town hall to discuss what the next school year will look like. Finally, our next round of STEP testing begins at the end of next month.

We still have seats open at our school for next year, especially for incoming 1st grade scholars. We encourage you to share this news with friends and family searching for a school and let them know that they are still able to apply for their scholar!  Enrollment is an exciting time in which we get to expand our wonderful community as we look forward to the next academic year.

Have a great week!

<FYI> 2021-2022 AF Enrollment Application is Still OPEN
Great News! Our 2021-2022 school year application is still open! We are still accepting applications for the coming school year. 

We urge you to share this amazing opportunity with your friends and family in need of a school community such as AF! 

As a reminder, current AF scholars do not need to reapply to AF and enter the lottery again.

Whether you have incoming siblings that you would like to send to Achievement First or if you have family or friends interested in our schools, we encourage you to submit today to take advantage of upcoming virtual events and opportunities!

<FYI>  COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Assistance
NYS has passed legislation to ensure and protect residential tenants at risk of non-payment or holdover eviction who cannot pay their rent through May 21, 20201. You can find documents and forms related to the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 at You can find more resources on the AF Advocacy Resource Hub here.
 Remote Learning Tutoring Service

Brittany Jean, a former AF teacher, has started a remote learning tutoring service. For families interested in this type of support, please visit to learn more.
<FYI> Free or Reduced Virtual Tutoring Options
Team Special Services has assembled this Virtual Tutoring Options resource outlining free or low-cost tutoring services available to our students that schools could share with scholars and families around Progress Report or Report Card nights. The list currently includes programs through Columbia University, Fordham University, and other credible programs. Please make this available for families or share specific tutoring organizations with your school communities as you see fit. The programs listed meet the following criteria that we believe can provide some support for scholars: 
  • Free or low cost
  • Provides a consistent tutor
  • Provides a higher frequency of 2+ times a week for 1-2 hours
  • Provides one-on-one or small group tutoring 
Achievement First is always in search of great teammates to join our community.  Through our referral program, we connect with hundreds of candidates every year. Recently, we launched an external referral program—this means that anyone can submit a referral and be eligible for a bonus, even if they aren’t employed by Achievement First. Do you know someone who you think would make a great teacher, leader, or operations teammate at one of our schools? Click here to submit a referral. If your referral is hired, you can earn a cash bonus. For complete rules, read here.
