It's only been two weeks, but the children of BHN seemed to have settled into their new nests nicely. All around the school the classrooms are abuzz with the sounds of children excited about what they are learning. Whether discussing colors, friendship or traveling to new places, these birds are eager to discover new things and they can hardly wait to see what's going to happen next.

YOUR CHILD'S CLASSROOM

This event is just for parents. Teachers will discuss their plans for the year and you will have an opportunity to write a special message in your child's journal. (Parents and teachers get to chat without the distraction of little munchkins ;)

FESTIVAL ON THE HILL

Saturday, Oct. 11th, 11am-5pm

1300 BLOCK OF BOLTON STREET

It's time for all BHN families, old and new, to get behind the festival! Things are falling into place and we are on our way!
We have Milkshake! We have Mambo Combo! All free!


Here are some ways to help right now:


  1. Clean out those closets and basements- We have 2 booths for used items. Household items will go to Junktiquities. Gently used children's clothing and toys will go to another booth. Please drop off at 204 W. Lanvale or call us and we will try and arrange a pickup- (410) 728-0003
  2. We need used books! All kinds! Once again, you can drop off them off at 204.
  3. We need a few "special" items for the auction at the end of the day.
  4. We need advertisers and sponsors for the program. A half page is $50.00. whole page $100.00. Promote your business, thank a teacher, wish someone happy birthday or whatever you want. All artwork should be sent to festivalonthehill@gmail.com by October 3rd.
  5. Promote the Festival on your neighborhood blog , Facebook page or whatever.



Of course, the main thing is to come to the Festival, volunteer an hour or two at a booth, drink beer and wine, eat, talk to everybody and have a wonderful time! Volunteer sign up sheets will be coming later.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

6 O'CLOCK PICKUP OPTION

Did you know that BHN has a 6 o'clock pickup? For an additional monthly fee, parents can sign up for this option and rest easy that they don't have to rush here at the end of a long hard day. Interested? If you are willing to commit for the school year, please contact Kelly at bhnkellyapplefeld@gmail.com.

SCHOOL DIRECTORY

I'm still missing information from several families for the 2014-2015 School Directory. Even if you've been with BHN for a while, I am trying to compile all of the information online in one place. So please take a moment to click on the button below and fill out the form. Thank you in advance.
