BROADALBIN - The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District's annual calendar will be distributed to students on the first day of school, Sept. 4.
The calendar is also available to district residents who do not have children attending the schools at NBT Bank of Vail Mills and at the district office.
The pages of the 2014-15 calendar feature some of the extracurricular opportunities available to students, continuing the district's "Re-Imagining a Broadalbin-Perth Education" campaign, which began three years ago, a news release said. The calendar includes facts about each of the featured programs, as well as photos of students who have been involved in the programs. The calendar cover was designed by senior Emily Snow.
The cover of the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District’s 2014-15 annual calendar is shown.
Several years ago, the district discontinued its practice of mailing a calendar to every household in the school district in order to save money, the release said. This year, residents who would like a copy of the 2014-15 calendar have the option of picking one up at the district office or at NBT Bank of Vail Mills, 3711 Route 30.
Residents can also request to have a copy of the calendar mailed to their homes by calling the district office at 954-2500 (press 5 at the prompt). Area business owners or managers can request to have copies of the calendar placed in their stores by calling the district communications office at 954-2640.
A printable PDF of the calendar grids, which highlight important dates in the upcoming school year, can also be downloaded from the district website, www.bpcsd.org.
Residents who have children in Broadalbin-Perth schools can expect to receive a calendar during the first week of school. Classroom teachers will distribute calendars in their classrooms at three of the district's schools. The district will use the following distribution system:
- All children who attend The Learning Community will receive a calendar.
- Children who attend the intermediate school who do not have a younger sibling who attends The Learning Community will receive a calendar.
- Children who attend the middle school who do not have a younger sibling who attends the intermediate school or The Learning Community will receive a calendar.
- Students who attend the high school and are the only children in their families attending Broadalbin-Perth schools can pick up their family's copy of the district calendar in the high school main office.
