September 2017

Dear Families,
Welcome back to a new year of learning! It is wonderful to see everyone return after a summer of growth; children change so much in just two months!
As we return to school there are many routines to relearn and adjust to, and it takes time to regain our stamina for school. You may notice that your child is coming home more tired than usual and maybe even more sensitive. This is very typical at the start of a new year. Children are readjusting to a new class, often a new teacher and definitely new routines and expectations. As you and your child get back into the school routine it is important to insure that he/she is well rested for the school day. When children are well rested they are in the best mindset for learning and working with peers. We appreciate your support in this area!
Please mark your calendar for our Open House, Wednesday, September 27th.
And be sure to check the bottom of the BPMS website for our scrolling school calendar and important news announcements.
Happy New School Year!
