Our Mission:

The vision of the founding coalition was that the BCMCS would be a model Montessori School, providing a superior learning environment for its students through implementation of individualized Montessori curricula.

April's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Parents,

Well, it seems that Spring has finally sprung! The milder weather has allowed the kids to get outside more often, which in turn allows for better stability of the ever sought after mental and physical balance that we all pursue. Kids, more than anybody, require this sense of balance in order to be most poised and productive during their school day.

Last month, our school and staff fully participated in the annually held AMS Montessori Conference, as we were both a visiting tour school in addition to our attendance at the event itself. The conference's theme revolved around the aim of the 'discovery' and 'freeing' of the child. As unified Montessorians, we collectively celebrated the appreciation for this 'discovery' and 'freedom' which drives Montessori education. Our staff both showed off our own development of these ideals, and were then able to meet fellow members who shared in examining these and other exciting ranges of topics -- building new ideas for using learning autonomy in industrious and differentiating ways within the ever-widening spheres of Montessori influence. All in all, we both shared and received valued information that not only benefited our Montessori learning environment, but Montessori learning environments throughout the county.

Remember that PSSA testing for students in grades 3rd through 6th, and TerraNova assessing for students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, is set to take place this month. Please make sure your children come to school both well-fed and well-rested.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...
Mr. Brian Long
