    LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

    As I sit down to write these recommendations, I want to know more about your experience in the class this year. Since the baby is due in October, my plan is to write all of these during the summer. If you have not sent the request in via Naviance, please do it ASAP because I can attach the recommendation form as soon as I complete it. Also, there is a separate common application questionnaire that I fill-out. If you are applying for a November 1st deadline, please make sure you have everything in order in Naviance in September. If your deadline is a little later, I can always fill-out the common application recommendation form from home. You might have to nudge me to do it…I am okay with that J

    As you read these questions, answer the ones you feel best describe you and your experience. Here are some adjectives that might help you. Email me jessicarappaport@wpcsd.k12.ny.us
