Summer Reading

Attached, you will find a copy of the AP summer reading list for students who selected an AP course for school year 2020-2021.  The counselors have sent out an email to all those students who will need to complete the summer reading before the start of school in July.  If your child selected to take an AP course and did not receive an email, please contact your child’s counselor.

Uniform Needs

  • In the interest of best serving our community, Drew has moved forward with Flynn O’Hara as our new uniform vendor. Thank you to Dr. Allen for all of her work to find a company to best serve our community. Please see the flyer and link below for more information:

I recognize that this is a difficult time for parents and students. The level of uncertainty is troubling and at times can feel overwhelming. I encourage you to contact our counselors if you or your student need support.

You can also receive support via a free, confidential Crisis Text Line, with trained Crisis Counselors, by texting SHARE to 741741. (This is a national resource that is available 24/7).

Drew Opportunity Fund: First Initiative  

Last school year, Drew Charter launched its inaugural annual fund campaign, the Drew Opportunity Fund, in honor of our retiring Head of School Don Doran.  Under Mr. Doran’s leadership Drew students had myriad opportunities to innovate, achieve, travel and compete, all of which help to close the opportunity gap and make Drew an exemplary learning community. 

As this is a new initiative for Drew, please encourage others to participate, feel free to share ideas for support, and join me in making a donation to this year’s campaign if you haven’t already.  The more we raise, the more we can do!
