Please reach out to your friends and family, and especially BSGE alumni you may know and encourage them to donate to support BSGE.

While Holidays are still a long way off, we know many of you will be shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and some of you are so organized that you are already starting your holiday shopping!

Don’t forget that shopping through Amazon Smile is the same as shopping through the regular Amazon site, but if you designate the Baccalaureate School for Global Education PTA as your charity, the BSGE PTA will get a small donation.

PTA Meeting Speaker: IB Coordinator Jamie Meisler

A quick reminder that IB Coordinator Jamie Meisler has graciously agreed to attend our November 14th PTA meeting to discuss many aspects of the IB program and NYS Regents exams — from course requirements to the timeline for the various exams. This workshop is helpful for parents with students in all grades and is one of our most popular because she does such a great job explaining expectations for all our kids! She is also happy to answer questions.

We will also be discussing some of the exciting new initiatives from our Fundraising Committee, including Winterfest!!! More details coming soon!

See everyone tonight at 6:30!
