"Bee" Mindful with Ms. Faliveno

This month MBD is working together on filling buckets!

Staff will give out bucket-filling slips for students to add to the Big Bucket in the hall when students are caught being a bucket filler. Together MBD is working towards getting 100 bucket-filling slips in the big bucket! When we get to 100 we will have a school-wide celebration!

We want our students to fill buckets at home, at school and everywhere they go!

In Depth Look into PreK - Going to the Airport


Great job with lost and found this year. Below are the items still looking for a home. If any of these items are your child's, please email your child's teacher so they can be reunited together again.

The Hive's Health Hints

    • Spring has sprung, please send your child with appropriate clothing to be outside, layers are key. As long as it is not raining we try to get the children outside at some point during their day.

    • If your child is sick please keep them home, if they are sick the night before, they should not come to school the next morning. If you or your doctor do a COVID test, the school requires that you report the results of the COVID test to the nurse by sending a picture of the results via email. We now accept rapid and PCR tests. Your child can return to school when a negative test result is received in the nurse's office and your child’s symptoms have improved in the past 24 hours. See our website for other COVID guidance.

    • Please have a change of clothes in your child's backpack in case of an accident, in the bathroom or at lunch!! Spills happen. We have a limited supply of clothes in the nurse's office to give to children. Please remember to replace the clothing in the backpack and return the borrowed clothes to the nurse.

    To report an absence please call (973) 838-1311 press 1

    or email kbarile@bloomingdaleschools.org
