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!

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!

6:00 – 8:00 pm
(Doors open at 5:30 pm)
Curriculum night is intended to give BSGE parents an opportunity to come to the school and meet their child’s teachers.
This evening is intended just for parents.
Teachers will present brief overviews of classes, including course descriptions, homework, class expectations, any major projects, and year-end tests (Regents and IB exams).
While there may be time for general questions, this event is NOT designed to answer questions about individual students.
