From the Library
There was an error made in last week's message from the library! My apologies. The wrong image was linked for the fabulous Search Slip winner drawn. Here is the correct image of Frannie Baldi sitting in the library. She is in Mrs. Stank's 5th grade homeroom. Congratulations again to Frannie!

Earbuds have arrived and will be sold for $1.00 (cash only please) in the library. Please see the note from Susan Cavanaugh in this publication of Principal's Notes.

Earbud Purchase Option
With the introduction of 1:1 Chromebooks this year, students were asked to bring in a pair of inexpensive headphones/earbuds to leave at school. Because many students have forgotten to bring them in, they will now have an option to purchase a pair of inexpensive earbuds (similar in quality to what you would purchase on a plane) from the library for $1.

Amazon Smile
The PTG is excited to announce that shoppers can support the PTG by shopping through and selecting "Bedford Parent Teacher Group”. Amazon will donate .5% on eligible purchases to our organization. There are no fees or added costs to you, special offers and Amazon Prime benefits still apply.
