News & Announcements
While we are all experiencing some challenges since the BCSD schools are closed until March 31, let's look forward to some events once school is back in session at Glenmont:
YEARBOOK - While Glenmont School is closed, the Yearbook Crew is hard at work compiling material so that yearbooks will be full of your children's 2019-2020 school memories. Given the circumstances, all orders will only be accepted online at https://ybpay.lifetouch.com/. Please use code 11009120. Yearbooks cost $22. Please keep in mind that all yearbooks are personalized with your child's name and portrait. If you do not want personalization, you must contact Michelle Marino at email@example.com. Simply entering a different name through online ordering will not change the portrait that will print on the cover. Deadline to order yearbooks is April 19. If anyone wants to confirm receipt of their paper order, given the abrupt closing of school, please contact Michelle. Thank you, and stay healthy!
DISTANCE LEARNING OPTION - “Learn-at-Home” programming is available to BCSD students through their local public television station starting Monday, March 23.
The partnership between the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and New York’s nine public television stations will offer PBS educational programming on-air for students from prekindergarten through grade 12 every weekday.
Programming will be available for young children (PreK through grade 4) and older children (grade 5 through grade 12) on different digital channels. Material can be viewed for free over-the-air with a television antenna or on cable.
Parents and educators should check local listings for information about their public television stations’ schedules and channel lineup. As this program continues, stations are planning to offer more specific educational information and resources developed in conjunction with local school districts, BOCES, parents and teachers.
New special collections of learning materials have also been created for parents at PBSLearningMedia.org.
For more information, visit your local station: Schenectady – WMHT-TV 17 - http://www.wmht.org
KRAUSE'S FUNDRAISER - Unfortunately Krause's Homemade Candy, along with many other businesses, is being forced to close temporarily due to COVID-19. As a result, the PTA won't be able to deliver orders you placed by the end of March as had been planned. Please know that the PTA will do its best to find a way to get you your orders as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
BOX TOPS- Box Tops now has an app to help our school raise money and save on clipping. To help support the Glenmont school community: download the app to your mobile device, choose Glenmont Elementary as your school, and start scanning your receipts! The paper Box Tops can still be clipped and sent into the school before they are completely phased out. Thank you for your support!
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!
EAGLES TENNIS CAMP - Eagles Tennis Camp for Summer 2020! The Bethlehem Tennis Booster Club is partnering with instructor Mike Muscato again to hold three separate week-long camps at the Bethlehem HS courts. The camp is a fundraiser for our Bethlehem Tennis Program. The three weeks are:
Week 1: June 29 - July 2
Week 2: July 6-9
Week 3: July 13-16
The camp will be comparable to the 2018 and 2019 camps which were a big success. There are two age groups which collectively span ages 4-14. This camp is meant to provide an introduction to tennis for players ranging from no tennis experience (total beginner) to moderate tennis experience (JV).
If your family has a player of the appropriate age please strongly consider participating - and if you have family friends for whom this camp may be appropriate, please forward this information on to them. Help us attract and develop the next generation of Bethlehem tennis players!
Registration is open now. See attached flyer for full details and registration information. Contact Barbara Ruggirello at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Go Eagles!
