Dear Parents,

Our annual Hamagrael Elementary School Science Fair is set for Tuesday, March 19 from 6:30-8 p.m. in our auditorium.  This is always a fun event as our student scientists come up with creative projects each year. During the evening scientists and engineers from our school community will visit the student exhibits to talk with the children about their projects and what they learned from completing it.  Thanks to our PTA for their support of our science fair and to our coordinators Sarah Genovese and Jaimy George for all of their efforts helping make this program such a success.

We also will have our Summer Camp Fair in the lobby during the Science Fair.  There will be representatives from a variety of camps in the area. They will be available to provide information and answer questions from 6:30-8 p.m.  Thanks to Sabrina Petruska-Wilmot for organizing this for us.

We have our Spring Picture Day on Wednesday, March 20.  If you would like your child to get their picture taken, please make sure to follow the instructions on the school picture order form we sent home last week.  Please note that late online orders will only be accepted up to 48 hours after Picture Day. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Thanks to Yayoi Miyajima, Jackcy Jacob and Haley Schager for their help organizing this for our community.

On Thursday evening our 5th grade band students will be participating in the BCSD Band Festival at our high school.  This is always a special event as our band students get to perform with a guest conductor and the BCSD High School Band.  This year the guest conductor for the festival is Robin Linaberry, noted teacher, clinician and performer for the Southern Tier.  Here is the schedule for the evening:

BCSD Band Festival – High School Gym
6:00 p.m. BCSD elementary and high school band students
7:30 p.m. BCSD middle school and high school band students

There is no school for all BCSD students K-12 on Friday, March 22.  Our BCSD staff will be participating in a staff development day attending a variety of workshops.

Finally a reminder that the Silver Graphics orders must be placed online by this coming Wednesday, March 20.

Have a wonderful weekend.
