Parent Notification System

A cloud-based, automated system allows us to mass contact parents/guardians, students, and staff to share calamity-day information and other relevant and timely information. It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to keep this contact information up to date in PowerSchool.

 

Only authorized school administrators may activate the notification system. All client information is confidential and secure and all data is password-protected on secure servers accessible only by school administration. Each school's administrative assistant can answer questions about the notification system or assist in changing a home phone (primary) number.  Thank you for continuing to work with the District to remain informed and keep our schools safe.

The group includes 13 orchestra students, and one band student, senior tuba player John Bridges.

During the event, students performed before a judge as soloists or in small ensembles of two to eight musicians. The judge critiqued their performances and awarded each musician or ensemble a rating between I and V (i.e., 1 and 5).  A “I,” considered “Superior” is the top rating. 

 

Great work by our “superior” musicians!

BEXLEY EDUCATION FOUNDATION PROGRAM

High School Philanthropy Students Award Mini Grants

Juniors and seniors taking part in the Bexley Education Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Program approved more than $5,000 in faculty and staff mini grants this week.

 

After hearing from presenters regarding their project-funding requests on Monday afternoon, the students discussed each project’s merits among themselves and with members of the Bexley Education Foundation staff. Presentations were made by faculty and staff members, as well as students presenting on behalf of staff.

 

In the end, the group of students funded four requests totaling $5,012.

 

The grants will fund:

  • An after-school “safe space” and mentoring program at the high school;
  • The purchase of musical instruments to enhance high-school math instruction;
  • The purchase of COSI science kits for high-school students to use with their middle school or elementary school “buddies”; and
  • The purchase of a color printer to create quality prints to support high-school curricular and extracurricular activities.

The Youth Philanthropy Program is supported by the Bexley Education Foundation’s Charlene Morgan Emerging Leaders Fund.

There Was Fun for Everyone at ‘Maryland Night at the Library’

The dreary weather didn’t keep Mallards and their families away from the Maryland Night at the Library last night! The event featured an open house with pizza, snacks, and fun at the Bexley Public Library. A number of students signed up for new library cards, looked for books with their families, and played games.

 

A big thank you goes to the Maryland PTO and the Bexley Public Library for hosting this event!

 

Cassingham and Montrose Elementary Schools will have their “Night at the Library” events in February.
