Scholastic Book Fair:
Beginning on Monday, October 18th and running through Friday, October 22nd, Genet is excited to welcome the Scholastic Book Fair! Flyers were sent home last week with students and during library this week, students were given a sneak peak at some of the titles that will be offered.
Here is the schedule for when classes will visit the book fair: Genet Book Fair Schedule October 18th – 22nd.
If families are interested in creating an e-wallet to put money in for their child(ren) please view the accompanying link to a video: Short Video Reading eWallet.
Students, sometimes, share with families books they have seen in the “sneak peak” videos and cannot remember the information they viewed. To help, please click on one of the following links to be taken to the book trailers for grade levels:
- K-3 Book Trailers
- Grades 4-6 Book Trailers (** Please note, this trailer comes with a disclaimer: “Some segments of the grades 4-6 highlights may not be appropriate for students in grades K-3**)
Lastly, this year the PTO worked hard on creating an opportunity for families to donate to teachers to purchase new literature for their classrooms. If you are interested, please click the hyperlink to download a letter from the PTO: PTO Letter to Genet Families regarding teacher eWallets
Families, today your child(ren) was sent home with a letter regarding Genet’s Halloween Parade. I am also sharing it here in .pdf format: Genet’s Halloween Celebration 2021. Please take a moment and read this letter as it contains a lot of important information.
As we anticipate families wishing to take their child(ren) home after the parade, we are looking to get a better handle on how many students will be leaving after the parade. I please ask that families who are planning on taking their child(ren) home after the parade, please complete a google form. Please complete a google form for each of your children. At the completion of the Halloween Parade, families will need to come to the main lobby to sign-out their child(ren) with a member of the Genet Team. As the parade will be taking place at 2:00 PM and regular dismissal begins at 3:05, I kindly ask that you pick up your child(ren) after the parade to ensure we do not impact regular dismissal.
Please click the hyperlink for the form to indicate your are taking your child(ren) after the parade: Halloween Early Pick-Up List.

Emergency Dismissal Day – November 10th
This week your child(ren) should have come home with a letter from our Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction regarding our Emergency Preparedness Drill coming in November. If you have missed it, I have attached it here for you: Emergency Preparedness Drill Letter. Please take a moment and review the letter. If you have any questions, please contact the main office at 518-207-2681.
Thank you for your continued support of Genet! I wish you all the best this weekend and next week!
