 oct 2nd

We had a very busy month of September and our students have settled into a very comfortable and focused routine at school.  

All students completed the STAR assessment in reading, math and early literacy.  STAR is a computer generated test that students took in the computer lab on IPads or computers.  STAR is being administered to all students in the Barnstable Public Schools three times a year to monitor and measure student progress and achievement. The results of the test will be used by the teachers to plan appropriate instruction for each student.  Your child's teacher has a report to share with you during parent conferences.

We have a computer license for each child for RazzKids, SumDog and Typing Pal.  These programs can be used at home on your computer or IPad for students to practice their reading, math and typing skills.  If you would like assistance with any of these programs, please contact your child's teacher.

I am available to assist and support you and your child regarding any school matter.  Please do not hesitate to contact my office.  I have received very positive feedback from parents through email and I appreciate the time parents have taken to communicate with me about our school.  

Yours in Education at BCHMCPS,
