Social Media and Cyber Safety: Parent Meeting
Please join us on Monday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the Middle School Theater for a special presentation by Westchester County Assistant District Attorney Robert Mayes on Internet safety, social media and cyber-bullying. This will be a great opportunity to learn important information about how to keep our children safe on-line. The meeting is open to parents of students at all grade levels.

Charity: Water
The Briarcliff Middle School Greenhouse club is proud to announce our 8th annual Charity:Water campaign. Over the past eight years, the Briarcliff community has been raising money for people in need of the most basic necessity in life: clean, safe water. Thanks to past efforts, we have raised enough money to fund two wells in Africa and two in Nepal. We’ve used this as an opportunity for students learn about global water concerns and raise the issues of philanthropy and compassion.

On Friday, students were fortunate enough to hear from a guest speaker, Peter Lenahan, who experienced the water crisis first hand and took it upon himself to help build a well for a community in need. Please ask your child about it. Below is the website for this year’s campaign. Donations are voluntary and help make a difference in the lives of others today!

Parent-Child Book Club
Parent-Child Book Club will hold our final session on Wednesday, June 7 at 6:30 pm at the Briarcliff Manor Public Library. We'll be discussing Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the BMPL for check-out. The Parent-Child Book Club is open to all 6-8th graders in Briarcliff Manor and an adult they enjoy sharing books with. Please RSVP by Tuesday, June 6 to: kmccabe@briarcliffschools.org

Summary: The first time she saw him, she flipped. The first time he saw her, he ran. That was the second grade, but not much has changed by the seventh. She says: "My Bryce. Still walking around with my first kiss." He says: "It's been six years of strategic avoidance and social discomfort." But in the eighth grade everything gets turned upside down. And just as he's thinking there's more to her than meets the eye, she' s thinking that he's not quite all he seemed.

Interactive Art Night
The Middle School Art Show takes on a unique format in the form an interactive family event on Wednesday, April 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please join us to view student work in our “gallery” outside the MS Theater, and come into the art classrooms to participate in art activities.
