April 19th, 2018 – BSGE’s annual CAS Night from 6:00-8:00pm

Graduating seniors will formally present their CAS projects for 10th and 11th graders and their families as well as the greater BSGE community throughout the building, answering questions about this engaging IB requirement. It is the perfect opportunity to spark ideas and enthusiasm for possible future CAS projects while having questions about the CAS requirement answered. All 10th and 11th graders are expected to attend along with a parent or guardian.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there.

PTA Meeting 2/13: Shameek Robinson from the College Board

Please don’t forget!  Shameek Robinson from the College Board (makers of the SATs and SAT subject tests) will be attending our PTA meeting to discuss the best strategies to help our kids prepare for the SATs and SAT subject tests.  He will go over all the free resources available through the College Board and Khan Academy to help our kids improve their scores on these important tests.  These free resources include test prep tailored to each child as well as their question of the day.  IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY TO START!  He will also discuss College Board’s college planning and scholarship search functions.

He is a wonderful, engaging speaker.  His advice will be invaluable and will be targeted for students of all ages.  So we hope to see BSGE parents from ALL grades attend.

We hope to see everyone tonight!

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!
