  • Auction

    A group of parents have come together to form a committee to explore having an auction at the school, possibly next winter. They are looking for volunteers to join the team. If you have experience or are just game to take on this challenge, please email the PTA at baruch104pta@gmail.com.

  • Cell Phones & Social Media

    The school's cell phone policy and social media awareness is currently being reviewed with students during advisory. Cell phones and other electronic devices should not be taken out in the school building or in the school yard during school hours. If taken out, these items will be confiscated and a parent/guardian will need to pick them up at the school.

  • Honor Roll

    In response to interest shown by students and families, please note the following criteria for honor roll:
    Overall average of 95% or above
    Average of 90% or above for every class
    Honor roll students are acknowledged directly by the school at the end of each marking period.

  • PupilPath--New Student Online Grading System

    The school is using a new new online grading and communication system called PupilPath. Letters have been sent home this week with instructions on how to sign up. We are trying to have a PupilPath representative speak at the next PTA meeting. There has been some confusion between Skedula and PupilPath. Skedula is the name of the program from the teachers' perspective; PupilPath is the name of the app for parents--as stated in your letters. So please use the PupilPath app.

6th Grade Announcements

SLT & PTA Positions for 6th Grade Families
 
Nominations closed at today's PTA meeting for the PTA and SLT positions for 6th Grade families. We have two parents stepping up for the two Members-at-Large PTA slots. Since there are two parents for two slots there will be no need for an election for the PTA positions. We have three interested parties for the SLT slot. Since there is only one position open on the SLT, there will be a contested election for that position.  Elections for this position will be held at the October PTA Meeting. Each candidate for the SLT will have the opportunity to address the meeting and provide a statement. Once all candidates have addressed the meeting, the election will be held.  
 
In June, additional SLT slots will become available as graduating families leave.  Elections for those slots will be held at the June PTA meeting. Communication regarding those slots will be sent out closer to that time.

8th Grade Announcements

High school tours and information sessions have begun and will be filling up fast. Parents must call and/or go on the school website to register for a visit.
