cover of 2017-18 calendar; "Our Schools, Their Futures"The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District’s annual calendar will once again be distributed to students when they return to school. The 2017-18 calendar is also available to district residents who do not have children attending the schools at KeyBank (Route 30 Maple Avenue Branch), NBT Bank of Vail Mills, and at the district office.

The pages of the 2017-18 calendar feature aspects of the district’s $39.7 million capital project, which is in progress. Each project highlight is accompanied by site maps or floor plans, artists’ renderings, photos of students who will benefit from the project, and a description of the work to be completed.

Several years ago, the district discontinued its practice of mailing a calendar to every household in the school district to save money on postage. This year, residents who would like a copy of the 2017-18 calendar have the option of picking one up at the district office, 20 Pine Street, Broadalbin; at NBT Bank of Vail Mills, 3711 State Highway 30, Broadalbin; or at KeyBank, 4773 State Highway 30, Amsterdam.

Residents can also request to have a copy of the calendar mailed to their homes by calling the district office at 954-2500 (press 5 at the prompt). Area business owners or managers can request to have copies of the calendar placed in their stores by calling the district communications office at 954-2640.

Residents who have children in Broadalbin-Perth schools can expect to receive a calendar by the end of the first full week of school. Classroom teachers will distribute calendars in their classrooms at three of the district’s schools. The district will use the following distribution system:

  • All children who attend The Learning Community will receive a calendar.
  • Children who attend the intermediate school who do NOT have a younger sibling who attends The Learning Community will receive a calendar.
  • Students who attend the middle school and high school and are the only children in their families attending Broadalbin-Perth schools can pick up their family’s copy of the district calendar in their school’s main office.
