State Assessments
All students will take the state assessments in English Language Arts this week, on April 14, 15 and 16. Please remember that students do their best when they come to school on time, well rested and with a good breakfast. They will also need #2 pencils for the exam. As per state guidelines, students may not bring any electronic devices into testing rooms (such as cell phones, laptops or e-readers) but they may bring reading materials for after the exam.

Parent Coffee
Please join us for a Parent-Principal Coffee Meeting on April 20 at 10:45 in room 209. We will discuss plans for integrating instructional technology for September.
Book Club
The next Parent-Child Book Club will be on Thursday, May 7 at 6:30 pm at the Briarcliff Middle School Library. We'll be discussing Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate.

Summary: Kek comes from Africa where he lived with his family, but he has been sent alone to a new home in America. Kek sees snow for the first time, and feels its sting. He wonders if the people in this new place will be cold and unkind, like the winter. But slowly he makes friends: a girl in foster care, an old woman with a rundown farm, and a sweet, sad cow that reminds Kek of home. Kek struggles to find his way, making a few mistakes along the way. But with a little kindness, he learns to become a man.

The Parent-Child Book Club is open to all Briarcliff Manor 6-8th graders and the adults they like to share books with. Please RSVP to kmccabe@briarcliffschools.org orabgkaplan@gmail.com so we can be sure to have enough pizza and snacks!​
