Blue Hills News

From the Desk of the Principal

Week of December 16 - 2019

To the Blue Hills community:


I hope that you have a wonderful holiday break and a happy new year as we usher in a year that at one time in my life seemed incredibly distant - 2020!


A few highlights from the last few weeks at BHR:


  • The winter athletic season has begun! Good luck to all the BHR teams!
  • The Boosters Holiday Fair was a great success! Thank you to the Boosters for all you do for our school.
  • The first superintendent/principal coffee hour was held on December 10th - another will be scheduled early in 2020. We hope to see you there!
  • The renovation project continues to inch closer to its end - our front entrance is back and looks great!

What makes BHR a special place?

Our teachers work hard, every day! Here, Ms. Wariboko (Social Studies) is leading our teachers in one of our teacher-led Professional Development sessions on 12/12/19, "Conversation about Race." Our teachers educate themselves and engage in learning to better facilitate learning for our students.

A special thanks to our Academic Director, Dr. Paul Bavuso, for his keynote address, and for DSC Chair Tom Polito (Dedham) for his attendance and support.
