News & Announcements
PTA COMMITTEE CHAIRS - If you received a committee folder (orange folder), please contact Michelle Marino at email@example.com. We are updating contact information and want to ensure that we can reach Committee Chairs, and vice versa. Thanks so much!
PTA MEMBERSHIP AND DIRECTORY - Deadline is Monday, October 16. Please join our PTA as an official member by sending in your registration form with payment. For $10, you will not only experience the joys of being a full-fledged PTA member (there actually are some perks and discounts! check out http://www.nyspta.org/YourPTA/YourPTA_Membership_Benefits.cfm), but you will receive your very own DOWNLOADABLE PTA DIRECTORY! That's right--this year, Glenmont is going all high-tech and will offer the directory via Directory Spot--an app that you can download on your phone, browser, etc. The directory is helpful when organizing birthday parties and after-school events. You can even print the directory off your own computer at your leisure, if you like having a paper copy. Just remember that you won't be receiving a paper, bound version from school.
So...please get your PTA membership registration forms/fees turned in...the sooner they're in, the sooner we can get the Directory Spot app completed and beamed to your gadgets! Only those families that pay for a directory will get a password for the digital copy of the directory. Any questions--please contact Rose Large at firstname.lastname@example.org
MABEL'S LABELS FUNDRAISER - The 4th grade class is raising funds for its Nature's Classroom trip; if you are looking to ensure that your kids' things don't go MIA, consider Mabel's Labels. These labels are a great way to keep all items out of the lost and found box. They stick to clothes and don’t come off in the washing machine... they stick to water bottles and don’t come off in the dishwasher. They are great for sports equipment, baby bottles, and they even have household/address labels, too. A portion of your purchase will help the 4th grade class...click http://mabelslabels.com/c/?type=fundraiser&b=6479&cur_website=us_website to look at the myriad options and stick to it!
HALLOWEEN BALL- Get ready for a spooktacular time, Friday October 27th...The classroom check-in opens at 6.15 pm; festivities begin at 6.30 pm, and pick-up in the classroom is at 8.00 pm. RSVP by this Friday, October 13th. Here are some important details:
SCHOOL BANKING - The CAP COM School Banking program has started! Questions about the program--please contact our head banker, Alice Tripp, at email@example.com. Also, we need a few parents to help run the program--it is Wednesday mornings, right after the students get to school (say 9.20-9.40); please contact Alice if you can help. 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
Got scissors? If you've been clipping Box Tops all summer, you can bring them in and put them into the Box Tops box--in the main doorway (or send them to school in your kid's folder). What are Box Tops, you say?
Box Tops can really help our school
They are a small but useful tool
They can be found here and there
In Glenmont and most anywhere
From soup cans to cereal boxes
But probably not on bagels and loxes
So please cut them out and send them in
For each 'Top sent, a dime we win!
Next PTA Meeting - Tuesday, October 10 @ 7.00 pm in the cafeteria. Got suggestions? Make your voice heard!

Design for Excellence 2025: Next Wednesday, Oct. 11, the Bethlehem Central School District Strategic Planning Committee is hosting a Community Forum from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm in the high school library. The committee is seeking to gather input for a strategic plan tentatively titled Design for Excellence 2025. The long-term plan will examine the district’s core values, mission and vision, and map out goals and strategies that will help guide district decision-making into the next decade. The planning process is just beginning and will likely extend through early 2019.
Please consider attending the forum on Wednesday to share your vision for the future of BC. You can RSVP here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BCSD-Community-Forum. You can learn more about the Strategic Planning process here: http://www.bethlehemschools.org/strategic-planning-committee/.
