11/8 School Events
JOIN AFFINITY GROUPS
Our school is beginning to create affinity groups for students and families of specific races, ethnicities, etc. Affinity groups are a great space for people with similar backgrounds to come together to share experiences, discuss issues, and generate ideas. These meetings are also amazing spaces to talk and learn about cultures, and to meet people with similar experiences and identities.
Students of Color Affinity Group
Ms. Hodge is currently working on creating an affinity group in which all Basis Independent
Manhattan students and families of color are welcome and encouraged to join.
Pan Asian Student Alliance
The Pan Asian Student Alliance is a new affinity group created by four juniors. PAU is open to all students, both highschool and middle school, and faculty who are ethnically from any region of Asia. PAU’s main objective is to bring a sense of diversity to our school community, as well as strengthen our community through integration of different cultures. Currently, PAU is starting work on bringing a Culture Day to BIM. Every Monday at 12:05pm.
November 10 is the date of the AMC 10 and AMC 12. AMC 10 is for grades 6th through 10th and AMC 12 is for 9th to 11th.
