8th Grade End of Year Activities

April 2019

Dear 8th Grade Parents and Families:

As we look forward to warmer weather,  I am sure that you and your child are excited to look forward to the end of the school year, when your child is expected to graduate from Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School!   We here at BUGS are already planning many exciting events for our third 8th-grade graduation. We ask that each family pay dues of $100 for their 8th grader to support all of the things we are doing to create a lovely end of the year experience. Your $100 dues payment helps to cover the following items:

  • Graduation Ceremony  - Thursday, June 27, 10 a.m. in the auditorium.  Tickets are not required for entrance to the ceremony.

    • Flowers, programs, invitations, etc for graduation

    • Diplomas, Graduation Awards, medals, and plaques

    • Gown Rental (Students must return at the end of the ceremony)

  • Cap and Tassel with 2019 Charm (Students may keep)

  • A copy of the BUGS yearbook

  • An 8th Grade Class tee shirt specially made for the Class of 2019

  • Framed Keepsake from the School

The 8th Grade Dance and Trip will be separate fees should your child choose to participate.  

8th Grade Trip to Great Adventure NJ- $40

8th Grade Dance June 21st 6-9pm- Gennaro's Catering Hall 6602 13th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11219 $60

Please note that the class trip and the dance are contingent upon positive behavior and citizenship throughout the year. If your child is not able to attend for any reason, unfortunately, we are not able to offer refunds on payments.  

We would greatly appreciate payment for the dues as soon as possible. You may send payment to the school in cash or check, made out to Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School (not BUGS), and we can also accept credit card payments online at http://bugsbrooklyn.3dcartstores.com.  Please consider supporting another BUGS family by paying an added amount, as these dues do not fully cover our costs.  If you have any technical questions about dues or payment, please contact our Operations Manager, Cay Tolson at cay.tolson@BUGSbrooklyn.org  or 718.280.9556 ext. 506. For all other inquiries please contact Dean Lucie.

 If you have any questions about graduation, please feel free to reach out to me at lucie.davis@bugsbrooklyn.org.  Please know that, as always, academic excellence and engagement remain our first concern at BUGS.  We expect all of our 8th-grade students to maintain their academic focus until the last day of school.  I, along with all of the BUGS faculty and staff, will be focused on providing your child with an outstanding education through the end of June, so that they are prepared both for their end of year Regents exams and for the rigors of high school.
