September Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Families and Students,

What a magnificent time this, the beginning part of the school year, brings about. Already, our students have had a plethora of experiences academically, artistically and, especially, socially -- they are truly having fun catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

For this month, recognize that many of our Fall Clubs are set to begin, with detailed information posted in the After School Activities tab. As always, be sure to follow the school's working calendar, located in the Calendar tab, for all updated school listings.

In addition to the staffing changes this year that were mentioned in last month's message, know, also, that our Art teacher position has changed, as Mrs. Shahlin has decided not to return. Melanie Branchide, whose vitae includes Art Instruction in varied school, camp and program settings, as well as being a freelance artist and designer, will be taking over. Her Bio page will be uploaded to the website shortly.

Looking forward to continued successes and accomplishments throughout the year. Take Care and until next time . . .
Mr. Brian Long

My School Account
Last year, our school announced the launch of a new online service "MY SCHOOL ACCOUNT" allowing parents to monitor your children’s lunchtime purchases, track what your children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low.

This year we are expanding the capabilities of the My School Account to also manage payments of all additional school sponsored activities, such as field trips, fundraisers, purchase of year books, play tickets....etc.

Starting in October of 2016, online student debit accounts linked to a credit/debit card or checking account will be the only way to place a lunch order or make any other purchases through the school. Checks or cash sent to the school will no longer be acceptable forms of payment.

If you haven't already created an account, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. See the above hyperlink for directions on how to create your My School Account or to Log In and Manage your account.
