News & Announcements
JUMP FOR JOY - Looking for a fun way to celebrate the end of the school year? Why not bounce into summer? Join us at Airdrenaline on Tuesday, June 25th from 6pm-8pm. Invite friends and family, you do not need to be a Glenmont student to attend (and parents are more than welcome to bounce as well). Prices available here: https://airdrenaline.com/hours-and-prices/. This is not a drop off event, a guardian must stay with their child.
FIFTH GRADE FAMILIES - On May 31st, from 6-8pm, the Glenmont 5th graders are invited to a Pit Party at the Middle School. There will be a DJ, food, games, prizes and more! If you are able to donate a prize or your time volunteering, please click the link below to sign up! Thank you for your support! ttps://signup.com/go/TJhvAGZ
PAINT & POP - Please note that there was a typo on the flyer (which was sent home with students and is attached here for your convenience). The correct information is:
Friday, May 10, 2019 - Grades K-2
Friday, May 17, 2019 - Grades 3-5
Just to be clear, both classes are on Fridays. Volunteer and class hours are from 3:30 - 4:30.
GLENMONT SAYS FAREWELL - The end of this school year will also be the end of the Glenmont educational careers of several teachers and staff members, namely, Mrs. Kaplan (Aide), Mrs. Fusco, Mrs. O'Donnell, Mr. Rawitsch, Ms. Bennett, Mrs. Falco, and Mrs. Aupperle. We need your help to put together a super slide show for the retirement party! If you have any candid shots capturing great moments in these Glenmont heroes' everyday school lives, please send them to: email@example.com
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!
See the Box Tops sheet in here. If you fill the sheet with Box Tops, send it to school (put in an envelope marked "Box Tops"). A filled sheet = $5.00 for the PTA!
SCHOOL BUDGET VOTE IS TUESDAY, MAY 21!
On May 21, Bethlehem Central School District voters will consider a $100.8 million budget for the 2019-20 school year that would increase spending by 2.06 percent and carry a tax levy increase of 2.03 percent, an amount below the district’s tax cap. The proposed budget for the coming school year was adopted unanimously by the Board of Education at its April 3 meeting.
In addition to the budget, voters will also elect two members of the Board of Education, decide on a bus proposition to replace aging vehicles in the district’s fleet, and consider a $10 million capital reserve fund to save money for future building projects.
Vote Tuesday, May 21, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in Gym A at the high school!
BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY SURVEY - The safety of students is one of the district’s top priorities. The message below is from the Town of Bethlehem Bicycle and Pedestrian committee who shares the district’s interest in student safety and is conducting an important survey:
The Town of Bethlehem Bicycle and Pedestrian committee invites you to take this Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety survey in order to help them gather and analyze some of the walking and bicycling-related concerns throughout the Town. The online survey will be available now through Tuesday, May 21. This anonymous survey will be used to highlight areas for the committee to begin working on as children and neighbors start enjoying the outdoors. The survey is expected to take approximately 2-5 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee member Erin Svare at firstname.lastname@example.org.
