What is a Virtual Town Hall?

A Virtual Town Hall provides an update on how school is going this year. It's also an opportunity for families to ask questions, seek clarification, and offer suggestions/input.

A BIG Thank You to the Mason's!

The Mason Family donated oranges to our kitchen, and the students sure have been enjoying them.

Thanks for your delicious gift!

BASH 2021

What is BASH?

It stands for Building A Scholastic Heritage, and it's an amazing fundraising event. Your support is vitally important to Bishop Marshall School’s ongoing commitment to deliver exceptional Catholic education to children in our community. The money raised during BASH is a key component in our ability to keep tuition affordable, as well as to provide the tuition assistance that makes attendance possible for over 40 percent of our children.

BASH 2021 Theme:

This year, we're celebrating all things Vermont through a virtual silent auction. Check out the BASH webpage and stay tuned for updates as the event nears.

Interested in sponsoring BASH?

If you own your own business or you think your employer would like to help out, we have a fantastic sponsorship opportunity. See the flyer below for more information.

Enrollment for New Families

Enrollment for new families officially began on March 1st! If you know someone who may be interested in joining our BJAMS family next year, encourage them to apply early as space in many of our classrooms is limited! Don't forget to tell them to list you in their application as a referral! Our parent referral program awards you $250 off your next year's tuition when a new family enrolls and names you as the referral family.

Enrollment for Sibling Students

Do you have a child not currently enrolled at BJAMS but you are interested in enrolling him/her for next year? We would like to be able to offer current BJAMS families first priority in the limited spaces available next year. If you are interested in enrolling a sibling of a current student please let Mrs. Nordenson know by March 5th.
