GBMS Update



Clean Ocean Action (COA) holds the Beach Sweeps event twice yearly in New York and New Jersey.  Our Global Scholars attended the Beach Sweeps event this past Saturday with a few hundred other volunteers from around the region at Raritan Bay Waterfront Park.  The students spent the morning clearing the beach of straws, bags, bottles, and other plastic items, collecting several trash bags full of washed-up refuse.  A huge thank-you goes out to our parent volunteers Lori Goucher and Rajul Vyas.


Picture Retakes – Monday, October 30th.

Students who had pictures taken will bring home PROOFS and orders on Tuesday.

New Students & Absentees:  The office will call students down to take their picture. Students should bring the order form if placing an order. If the student is not ready to order yet, the student will still be photographed (important for YEARBOOK), and will receive a sample proof of the portrait 2-3 weeks after retake day with a unique pass code to order online.

Unhappy with Original Package: Return original package to the photographer and have a new portrait taken. BNL will print the same package with the updated image.
Please Note: A new package will not be sent unless the original package is returned on retake day.

Happy with Original Image, Never Ordered: Simply have your child hand the order form to the photographer with a note explaining it is for the original portrait. OR use the unique password on the “LAST CHANCE ORDER FORM” enclosed with the proofs.
