SCHOOL BANKING - Every Wednesday morning, Glenmont students have the opportunity to make bank transactions through our CAP COM School Banking Program. Want to sign up your scholar to make a dollar (for reading books and other programs)? Go to: https://www.capcomfcu.org/personal/learn/programs-for-kids/school-banking.html We also need a few more parent volunteers to help run this program; if you have 20 minutes to spare on Wednesday mornings (~9.15-9.35 AM) and can help out, please contact Alice Tripp, at email@example.com.
BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB - Looking for a sweet way to commemorate your child's birthday, without sending in cupcakes? Want to treat readers to a gift that keeps on giving? Consider donating a book to the Glenmont School library. Inside each book, a permanent bookplate will be affixed, acknowledging the birthday child and the donation of the book. Each birthday child will be publicly recognized with their donated book. A list of books recommended by the library will be added to Amazon.com as a "Glenmont Elementary School Wish List". Questions? Contact Michelle Arthur (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our librarian, Joel DiTata (email@example.com)
Keep Clipping Those Box Tops...we have a collection box in the doorway as you enter the school. What are BoxTops, you say? They are the little pink/red rectangles on products such as General Mills foods, Ziploc products, Kimberly-Clark (i.e., Kleenex)...Click here for more information about where to find BoxTops. Our PTA will receive 10 cents for every BoxTop you send in to us (you can put them in an envelope marked "BoxTops" and place in your child's folder to take to school). Every little bit helps!
Please join us for the next PTA meeting, Tuesday, May 9 @ 7 pm in the cafeteria. Need childcare while you attend the meeting? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know! We need new leaders to help direct the PTA's future programming! Please contact Francesca Casaregola at email@example.com if you are interested in learning about what these positions entail.
BCSD has seen an increase in the need for food assistance in recent years and is aware that a number of students in the District are experiencing some form of food insecurity. Research has shown that students who are not hungry attend school more regularly, have improved academic achievement, and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. BCHS's Student Senate has launched "Weekend Meals for Kids"--a Backpack Program--whereby backpacks will be filled with nonperishable foods by staff and student volunteers and discreetly sent home with participating students at their schools. For more information, please refer to the flyer below.
