Dear Parents,

It is always sad to answer questions may have about any crisis. If your child has questions about the tragedy that occurred in Orlando over the weekend, you can find resources at http://www.nasponline. Please let us know if you need any additional support.

Please remember the importance of arriving at school promptly at 9:00 for the start of school. We have had approximately 20 students arriving late over the past two weeks. It is important that children learn the responsibility of arriving on time to begin their school day with morning work and/or morning meeting in the classroom. We appreciate your efforts in helping our students remain focused and contributing to a smooth start to the classroom each day!

There are many fun events planned to celebrate the successful year that we’ve had. If you are available to help out on Field Day, June 8, please let the PTO or Mr. Clemente know as soon as possible.

I have had a wonderful two years as principal of BCHMCPS and I want to thank you for the support you have shown. This is a great school community and I am proud to have served as your principal. I wish you the very best in the future.

Reminder to parents: Children should be dropped off at 8:45. There are supervisors at the door at that time. If you would like to come into the building, please come through the front door, sign in at the office and obtain a visitor's badge. Please sign out when you leave. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our school safe for our children.

Message from Principal Podesky: 

New Policies Effective 4/25/2016
If you are dismissing your child, please send a written dismissal note in with your child (we cannot take verbal instructions from students), or if necessary please call the main office by 9:00 a.m. We ask that you do not call the office during the day to change transportation plans, unless there is an emergency. Many times children express concern and feel anxiety when plans are changed, they do not know how they are getting home or with whom they are going home until the end of the day.

For security and safety reasons, the main office will be closed for student dismissals after 3:00 p.m. If you need to pick up your child early, please send a note and plan to come before 3:00 p.m., otherwise please plan to pick up your child at walkers or parent pick up at 3:25.

Quick Notes:

Incoming Kindergarten Registration will take place on May 12, 2016. There will be NO SCHOOL that day for existing kindergarten students.

Yours in Education at BCHMCPS,

Kathy Podesky

Important reminder for Grade 3 parents:

State law requires that a physical exam is done during third grade. If you have not already scheduled an appointment with your child’s physician for their yearly physical, please do so before the end of the school year. If your child’s physician has already done his/her physical, please send in a copy of the physical to Mrs. Melley in the health office. Any questions, she can be reached @ 508-790-6495.

Spring is here but, sometimes the weather is still very chilly. We try to go out for recess every day, so please remember to have your child wear appropriate clothing, including sneakers or other running shoes.
