It’s officially February! We have two exciting events this month: The BSI Summer Camp Auction and Chess Festival.
STARTS: Monday, February 3rd.
ENDS: Wednesday, February, 12th at 10 p.m.
Bid for and win summer sleep-away and day camps, after-school
programs, and all-season activities for your kids while raising funds for BSI!
All proceeds raised through the Camp Auction will be invested in
enrichments and specialty educators for BSI students.
Sunday, February 9th 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. (Tournament registration from 10-10:30 a.m.)
If your child is a beginner and is not going to participate in the tournament just yet, he or she can still enjoy the event to the fullest!
Activities for those who don’t play in the chess tournament include:
Parents can participate in the tournament too! Just select “adult” as your grade.
Please volunteer here to donate food or help with event organization.

The Consortium for Research & Robotics is a partnership between the Pratt Institute’s cutting-edge center for K-12 technology education and our seventh graders. Through the Consortium, our children are provided with a unique opportunity to work hands-on with many different types of robots including NYC’s largest industrial robot!
Each year, we have a specific project-based study where Mr. Brian, our math teacher, works closely with the Pratt instructor to tailor to meet the needs of our students. Students learn skills in engineering, architecture, design and fabrication as they engage mathematics, software, technology, and robotics to problem solve, create, and learn.
Below, an excerpt taken from Consortium’s website:
Traditionally, robots perform repetitive tasks that are “dull, dirty, and dangerous.” Here at the Consortium, we are challenging this convention, putting people to work by engaging designers, engineers, researchers and artists in a new experimental paradigm that is equal parts digital and physical.
Today is the final day to make your donation to the BSI PTO in 2019. We’ve raised approximately $40k but still need help closing the gap to fund the programs we’ve highlighted here. Any size contribution matters!
