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.
OPEN HOUSE — No reservations are required. Attendance is not taken at Open House events and is not a factor in admissions. The Open House includes an overview of our instructional program and a self-guided building walk. Our 9th Grade Admissions Open House for the 2017-2018 school year is as follows:
9th Grade Applicants: Thursday, October 5th from 6:00-7:30pm
Please note: due to space constraints, Open House participants may experience a wait before being admitted inside the building.
Thank you all for coming to the PTA meeting last night! We had a fantastic turnout of upwards of 60 people.
Thank you to all who took up the call to volunteer and we will be reaching out to you soon to check in on your interests and skills.
Please reach out to parents that you are friends with to join the BSGE PTA Facebook Group and attend the PTA meetings.
And again, I encourage you to donate to the PTA soon, so we can get to the work of fully supporting the school initiatives we are behind as a community.
Please reach out in our Facebook group or personally by email.
