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

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s CAS night! Peter Wilson will give a brief overview of the Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) program, a requirement of all IB diploma candidates. But more importantly, tonight affords a wonderful opportunity to see the actual projects completed by our seniors and discuss their individual CAS experiences. 10th and 11th grade students and their families are required to attend. We think this is a great program for all our parents.
(We will also be forming our Nominating Committee for our June 6th PTA/SLT election.)
See everyone tonight at 6:30!

One of our HS teams will advance in Moody’s Mega-Math Challenge. With over 9,000 teams registered, a little over 1200 submitted viable papers and only 200 were selected as semi-finalists for the second round. We will find out if we go further as one of five finalists next week. Kudos to “Team 9429”!
Congratulations to the Helping Hands Committee and Peter Wilson for another successful Blood Drive on Friday March 17 in partnership with the New York Blood Center. Students, staff, and families came out in droves to participate.
