4/3/22

Team,


Happy first weekend of APRIL!! I don't know about you, but I am ready for consistent warmer weather.


I am asking for your help with PHONES. They are to be OFF and AWAY during the day. Some teachers are providing storage areas for kids. Those that do not take advantage of the storage, need to power off and keep their phone in their lockers. Any phones seen will be sent to the office and given back at the end of the day. If they become a repeat offender, consequences will be given.


*If you need to get in touch with your child for any reason during the day, please call the office at 508-222-6260.


Yesterday was Autism Awareness Day! Let's all come together and light it up blue for Monday! Wear your BLUE gear!!

Counselors Corner!

On Wednesday, Dec 8, 2021, our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students participated in a classroom assembly entitled “Say Something”, an initiative that teaches youth and teens how to recognize signs and signals of potential harm to self or others. The students learned three steps that will help them keep their friends and classmates safe from hurting themselves or others. The three action steps your student learned are as follows:


  1. Recognize warning signs and threats

  2. Act immediately and take it seriously

  3. Say something


This presentation was well received by our BMS community and generated thoughtful and candid conversations. We encourage you to take this opportunity to engage in a conversation with you student about this presentation. As always, if you have any questions or your student needs additional support around this topic, please contact one of our School Adjustment Counselors.
