The BSGE PTA, in coordination with the future Alumni Association, invites you to join us in celebrating the past 15 years of BSGE’s existence with parents, faculty & staff (past and present), and alumni– with dinner, drinks, DJ, and dancing! Looking forward to seeing you all there! #BSGEUnscripted
On May 3rd, we will welcome speakers from the Hetrick-Martin Institute to run a workshop about gender identity for BSGE parents and guardians.
To this generation, gender expression and pronoun usage is critical to developing adolescents. One of the central goals of the workshop is to help parents communicate with their children around these themes.
Please join us for this event on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm.
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.
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.
Thank you to all those who attended the workshop from Elevate Education at our PTA meeting last night. Elevate Education is aimed at improving the time management skills (and note taking strategies) of our students and how we, as parents, can reinforce these study skills at home. For more information, please check out their website. Our thanks to the school for arranging this wonderful workshop!
