Dear BCMCS Parents, Reflecting back, the 2015-16 was yet another accomplished and exceptional school year that included numerous highlights, from stunning plays to spectacular ceremonies to superb musicals to meaningful fundraising events to fabulous displays of art, all the while encompassing our assenting Montessori instruction. As is always the case, these highlights and accomplishments would not be possible without the devotion of all constituents. Therefore, I would like to formally thank those who truly make BCMCS such an incomparable school environment year after year, from our phenomenal teachers and staff to our devoted PTA organization to my administrative and IT team to our committed BOT -- this past school year truly was nothing less than spectacular. Each new school year comes with change, and this year will be no exception. Mrs. Bowman, Mr. Ciotti and Mrs. Brownstein will not be returning this school year as they have taken on Counseling, SPED and other teaching roles in or at neighboring districts. We truly wish them all the best. Somewhat in addition to these departures, Mrs. Montague will serve in a more limited role this upcoming year, one in which she will be more a part of the LE1 and LE2 classroom settings during their uninterrupted morning work cycles. To counteract all of this change, we have promoted from within, extending Mrs. Mahan's [SPED Teacher] role by moving her into the vacant spot left in Mrs. Carpenter's room. Mrs. Lyons, who filled in for Mrs. Montague last year, will permanently remain in LE3. As the UE student population has dwindled this upcoming year due to so many 5th years deciding not to return, the UE position will not be filled; however, we have added a more permanent additional staff member, Mrs. Belinski, to support if assistance is needed at either of the LE or UE levels. And finally, Mrs. Toor will take over Library duties in addition to her Language and other commitments in a full time role for this upcoming year. Know that, although there will be huge voids left with those teachers not returning, we feel more than confident that the movements, increases, and/or additions of other known staff members will more than fill these voids. Take care and until next time . . .
