Career Day Planning
Calling all Professionals! We hope to add a Career Day to the schedule this coming spring. Our tentative date is March 16 and we are looking for volunteer presenters in a wide variety of career choices, vocations and paths. Presenters will be paired with teachers in our building to help prepare for the day. If you are interested or know someone who you think would be interested, please contact Mrs. Piersons at spiersons@briarcliffschools.org.

    Souper Bowl Spirit Drive
    On Friday, February 5 Student Government invites all students to bring a canned or non-perishable food item to benefit a local soup kitchen. In return, students get to wear their favorite team spirit wear (jerseys, tee shirts, hats, etc.) to celebrate their favorite teams and the spirit of generosity. At this time of year, the need at soup kitchens is great; your support is appreciated by many.

    Spring Musical
    Students interested in participating in the spring musical are invited to an introductory meeting with Mr. Driver and Mrs. Leon on Thursday, February 4 at 2:30 p.m. in the MS Theater.

    From the Library
    The next Parent-Child Book Club will be held at the Briarcliff Manor Public Library, on Wednesday, March 2 at 6:30 pm. We will discuss Monster by Walter Dean Myers. The Parent-Child Book Club is open to all 6 - 8th graders who live in Briarcliff Manor and an adult they like to share books with. Please RSVP by Feb. 26th so we can be sure to have enough pizza and snacks! kmccabe@briarcliffschools.org

    You may use School-Pass to send electronic notification when your child will be absent, late or picked up early from school. Please find the link on our district website, under the tab for Parents and Students.

    It is time to order middle school yearbooks! Please note that books must be ordered on-line and in advance; they are not available for sale in June. Please use this link to order by February 1: http://briarcliffschools.org/schools/ms_yearbook

    8th Grade Families
    The Yearbook staff is asking for your help! The Yearbook publishes a section that features pictures of groups of 8th graders in their younger years. We would love to continue this Middle School tradition but we need your group photos! If you could take a moment and go through some old photos of groups of 8th graders from years past, we would love to feature them in the Yearbook. Please email your pictures directly to lgualtiere@briarcliffschools.org - or drop them off at the main office in an envelope for Mrs. Gualtiere. Due date for submission is Monday, February 29.

    6th Grade Maker Faire
    Our Electromagnetism Maker Faire is fast approaching. Students demonstrate knowledge of working with electrical circuits and magnetism by making different products as they apply concepts learned in class. Parent facilitators make this event successful. Volunteers may plan to stay for the day, or sign up for a specific time slot. No experience is needed to help with this activity, but there is an introductory meeting on Thursday, February 4 from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m. Please use this link to sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084aacaa2aa3fe3-6thgrade
