A note from Mrs. Bonacquist

Dear Families,

Spring is finally here! Now is a good time to remind your children about appropriate school dress which includes not wearing revealing clothing such as “short shorts” and spaghetti straps. Children need footwear that has a back on it for recess. Otherwise, they can only go on the black top area.

This year, National Library Week happens to be April 13-19 - spring vacation week! There are many great activities planned for the week. Please check out the website for the Bethlehem Public Library at and

On Wednesday, April 23, the BOE will be making budget decisions. Please join us at the HS at 6pm and go to the website for more information.

The BC Food Service program has been promoting March Madness Basketball Give away. The two winners from Slingerlands are Jolie Lucarelli and Ray Hutton! Each child won a basketball and will have their picture taken with the captain of the HS Varsity Basketball team. Congratulations!!

The Kids for Kindness collection has been overwhelming. Many thanks to you for making a donation to the Kleinke family. IT was great to see so many kids wearing tie dye shirts in support of this activity!

Spring break is finally here! We hope you are able to find time to relax and have fun with your family. When we return to school there will only be nine weeks left to the end of the year! As we know from past years, this is a very busy time here at Slingerlands!

Happy vacation!

Heidi Bonacquist
