Letter from Principal Bonacquist, Oct. 27

Filed in Slingerlands by on October 27, 2017

Dear Families,

Tonight is our PTO sponsored ‘Monster Mash.’  This will be a costume Halloween party.  We ask that children not wear masks (or face paint that covers the whole face) – we need to be able to recognize every child. We also ask that they not carry accessories such as wands, swords, etc.  This event is for Slingerlands students and their families.  We ask that friends from other schools and older siblings not attend. This is a family event and all children need to be supervised by an adult.  We hope to see everyone there!!

At the Bethlehem Central Board of Education meeting on Wednesday, November 1st our BOE members will be recognized for their dedication and service to our school community as part of New York State Board of Education Recognition week.  Each school library will be purchasing books in their honor. Thanks to our Bethlehem Central Board of Education members:

  • Christine Beck – President
  • Lynne Lenhardt – Vice President
  • Charmaine Wijeyesinghe
  • Holly Dellenbaugh
  • Meredith Moriarty
  • Michael Cooper
  • Jonathan Fishbein
