What is IB? I BE what? IB stands
for International Baccalaureate, part of The
International Baccalaureate Organization,
or IBO. The IBO deals with education,
government, and separate international organizations
to create challenging curriculums
of international education and intense
review of children. It usually starts at a
young age in a child’s life, and More…
1. Do not stare at anybody.
2. Try to take the subway with
friends or a group.
3. While waiting for a train do
not stand to close to the track.
4. Fooling around near the
tracks is not funny, what if you
slip and fall in.

belongings. Keep bags on your More…
The grading system in BSGE is
quite complicated. It not A-F
nor is it 0-4. It is 1-7, and in its
unique way it makes sense.
Whatever you get, remember
that it can not be converted to a
percentage. Getting a 6-7 is More…
1. Stay away from Mr.
Mac [ he bites]

My sister, Jolijt, had been prepping
me for months. She was telling me
what to say and how to say it before
I even went to the open house.
I was already worried about taking
(and hopefully passing) the test,
much less the interview. I really More…
On the day before the last day of school the former BSGE 8th grade was busy getting their funk on with nature. They went to the Poconos Environmental Education Center (P.E.E.C) in the Pennsylvania Poconos.
On Monday at 9:00am (sharp) 48 BSGE students and 4
teachers boarded two coach buses. With snacks in hand
and sleeping bags in cargo the 8th graders (and Niki, Mrs.
Africano, Linda and Mr. Powell) began their adventure.
The first bus smelled like someone dumped a bottle
of cherry flavored Tylenol all over the backseat. Turns
out the bus company just had something for More…
Ahh, the two months of July and August are simply amazing. No pressure of school work on your shoulders, no waking up early, and no parents nagging you about getting your homework done. Unfortunately, those long days at the beach and days of carefree fun are over. Yes, as hard as it is to believe, the summer of 2007 has come to an end. We know how hard it is to hold back tears right now. Please, take a brief moment to wipe your eyes. . . As we experience the More…
We are the Baccalaureate School for Global Education but you might not have known that due to our lack of school sprit. Maybe it’s because we have globes on our school shirts. Or maybe because there is no sprit because, up until this year, we never really had a mascot. Many people use our nonexistent sports teams as an excuse for their lack of sprit. That is all going to change.
As of now we are no longer the nerdy school. We will no longer mock our school’s efforts. We will fight for our school. We will go to school events. We will support our school teams. We will love our school. We will take care of our school. We will stick up for our school when it gets into fights with big bully schools. We, the students, will be proud that we go to BSGE. Okay, now that I’m done making these proclamations let me tell you how we will up the school moral. As the school paper we feel responsible for the school moral. The BACC Rag has gone on a mission to make you love our school. We’ve got plans, big plans. Those include hosting party’s, organizing grade football tournaments and possibly a tshirt contest.
Welcome to The Bacc Rag. Here you will be able to read and explore a collaboration of writing from a wide range of talented writers here in
B.S.G.E. Our weekly meetings allow us to keep track of what is happening inside and outside the school and keep readers entertained about the strange and wild things that are happening in life. For only about 2 hours every Thursday, you will be able to be a part of a school newspaper that will benefit everyone. We write articles, for love for writing, about anything and everything that we think will be appealing to you and quiet frankly to us. All are welcome to join The Rag, and enter with bright ideas and a place for free expression. To look for Bacc more information about this newspaper or just to have something to look at, check out our website: http://www.thebaccrag.com. Enjoy the paper.
BSGE students Kari Lindberg, Amalia Carusone, Erica Llanera, Pamela Reyes, Charisse Sanchez, Shaquille K., Matthew M., Kevin Encarnacion, Sophia Bourara, Hannah McFadden, Audrey Rivera along with Pat Llaneer collaborated with artist Francesca Nikkolos to make our very own peace pole.
In a school with 400 students and over 100 different spoken languages, there needs to be abond that brings us all together.
There needs to be some connection that allows us to live in harmony. All 400 students here at BSGE are very different. So how can you represent 400 very different people in one sculpture? According to Francesca Nikkolos, itʼs possible. With
some plexi glass, acrylic paint, makers and tissue paper, we will all be represented on one pole.
The pole is creative to say the least. Itʼs got six sides but itʼs not a hexagon. There is a triangle in the middle with a plexi glass cylinder surrounding it and a circle on top. There is no More…
Mr. Powell is one of two physical education teachers here at Baccalaureate School for Global Education. This is the first year for Mr. Powell working here at BSGE. It is also Mr. Powellʼs first year working as a physical education teacher. We donʼt know that much about him since he is new at the school and many of us havenʼt had him as a teacher yet, so I went to interview him to find out what he likes and other interesting facts.
Mr. Powellʼs full name is Jacques Powell, which means he doesnʼt have a More…
For many teens in America today, running a suicide on the basketball court could be a real hassle, and have them lose their breath fast. This is a problem for a lot of kids, especially these days. Today, the amount of overweight kids has doubled since 30 years ago. That, obviously, is not good, and this epidemic is becoming more problematic than it ever has been. Many people blame it on the greasy foods that children are eating instead of homemade meals, or the fattening sweets that take over the closets rather than fresh fruits being stored in the refrigerator. That is part of the problem, but it is not including a very important factor, which is exercise. People of today are not making sure that their kids are receiving the correct amount of exercise every day. The target amount of exercise for kids ages 2 and up is actually around 1hour most or More…
New York City has many things to offer. There are hundreds of shopping areas, restaurants,shows etc. For everyone who has nothing to do over the summer, here are some places to hang out and explore. If you like strolling around by yourself or with friends, then you can go to Times Square. There you will be able to find fun stores and mini malls, restaurants, some strange people (like the Naked Cowboy), and Broadway plays. The streets are always busy and youʼll never get bored. There are places like The Hard Rock Café, designer stores, fun little shops with collectables and more. Going with friends will More…
Remember hearing people say, “Hey make sure you put on sun lotion?” Well they have their reasons, and theyʼre not nagging you, theyʼre actually reducing your chance of getting skin cancer. Like when youʼre out in the beach and you want a tan, your mom is like “Sweet heart put on some sun screen youʼre going to get sun burned”. I know it gets annoying but hey like people say, parents know best. Ever heard of skin cancer? Thatʼs what you get when youʼre out in the sun without protection. Summer is right around the corner and Iknow that everyone is dying to go to the beach, and getting a suntan. Through More…
You always hear warnings for girls. Donʼt get pregnant, be strong, no abortion, no sex for you and worst of all, WHATʼS WRONG WITH YOU? Conversations always go something like, “how could she get pregnant? Her life is ruined forever.”
Iʼd just like to remind boys, girls and society in general that sex is a two way street and guys play a part in baby making too. So why donʼt they share the responsibility? Boys donʼt seem to get the blame but itʼs half their doing.
If itʼs going to ruin the girlʼs life shouldnʼt it ruin the boyʼs life to? The sad truth is that society doesnʼt More…
Have YOU ever felt pressured to have sex? Do you think that by having sex will make you seem older? Sex thatʼs what practically every teenage boy and girl is talking about. Have you ever actually thought about the consequences about having sex? I mean what would happen if youʼre a girl and you have sex and then youfind out that youʼre pregnant, what would you do?Teenage pregnancy has been one of the biggest issues in our country.The National Center for Health (NCHS) has collected data obtaining the topic of Teenage Pregnancy. Within a period of 10 years (1990-2000) teenagepregnancy has dropped a total of 27 percent. A rateof teenage pregnancy was taken in 1990. 116.3 pregnancies per 1000 women (ages 15-19) were reported.
