Mission Statement

Bucks County Montessori Charter School will make an individualized educational experience consistent with Montessori principles available to elementary age students. Montessori principles are based on the philosophy and methodologies of Dr. Maria Montessori who believed that children learn best by doing. In our Montessori school, this goal is accomplished through active pursuit of many different integrated learning experiences: physical, social, emotional, kinesthetic, as well as cognitive. The environment we provide facilitates intellectual, emotional, and social growth, thereby empowering our students to become responsible, confident, and caring global-citizens. Our goal is to enable children to become young adults possessing strong independent and analytical thinking skills, as well as an enduring love and passion for learning.

October's School Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Families,

The month of October originally held the eighth month spot ['octo,' inferring the eight] back when we followed a ten month Roman, lunar calendar. Following January's and February's insertions in the now followed Gregorian calendar, October was pushed into its current tenth month spot. Regardless of the rationale related to October's etymology, it hardly seems possible that we have just completed our first full month and are already into our third month of this school year. The students have truly settled into their school routines, having reconnected with old friends as well as connecting with new ones.

Please note the school events slated for this month. For starters, all of our Fall school and outside sponsored programs / clubs have begun. Also note the BookFair slated for the week of the 9th. Be sure to follow the school’s Quick Reference Calendar, found in the Quick Links section of our home page under Calendars, for all such up-to-date listings of pertinent school events. The best way to keep up to date with our school schedule would be to import and attach you own personal calendars with our school's Google account, located HERE -- you will then be able to see all future events and get reminders straight from your phone's calendar app.

In addition to school activities, also note the PTA sponsored events set for October, which include the BCMCS FAMILY HAYRIDE & BONFIRE @ SNIPES FARM on Saturday, October 15th from 6:00 – 8:30p. Forms have been sent home and are available on our website. Please contact Kat Graves @ 267-496-0003 with any questions. As always, the PTA appreciates all of the new 2017-18 PTA members who have already joined, and want to remind you that anyone can join the BCMCS PTA at any time for only $8.

As always, Take Care, and until next time...
Mr. Brian Long
