March Newsletter

Dear Parents,

You are always welcome as partners in our school.  We appreciate the support you provide through so many of the contributions you make by volunteering, participating in PTO and our schoolwide activities.

On that note, I would like to clarify that our goal at this point in the school year, especially given the changes due to the weather conditions, is to have our students in their classrooms by 9:00 a.m.  so that the teachers can begin instruction promptly.  We encourage the students to have breakfast in school and they can bring food from the cafeteria to the classroom if they are not finished by 9:00.

You are always welcome to walk your child into the school and please sign in and take a visitors badge if you come in to volunteer.  I extend my greatest appreciation to all of you for contributing to a safe and positive environment for learning at BCHMCPS. 

We’re going to start the month of March off with a celebration of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and
“Read Across America” on Monday, March 2.  Students can bring their favorite Dr. Seuss book and to wear their pajamas.  This will be a great topic for your family’s conversation!

March also means that we start the MCAS third grade Reading test on March 23.  We’ll send home a a reminder later in the month with tips for parents, the most important being , spend time reading with your child.  The computer program, Raz-kids, is an online reading program that the children love!  Perhaps you and your child can enjoy the books on line together.  If you have any questions about the program, don’t hesitate to contact our reading specialist, Jennifer Hemr or our technology assistant, Lauren Minnicozzi.

If I can be of assistant to you at any time, don’t hesitate to contact me.


Best Wishes,

Kathy Podesky
