Running of the Bells at BBIS: Parent Night

We invite you to join us on the grade level appropriate evening for our "Running of the Bells". This night is specifically designed for parents to get acquainted with their child's schedule and pick up any information the teachers are offering.


5th grade: September 26, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.


6th grade: October 1, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.


This is not a "come and go" event. It will be scheduled to resemble your child's day, so your promptness on the designated evening is essential for you to get the most from the evening.

BBIS PTO

BBIS PTO will be holding the first general meeting at 6:00 p.m. on each of the "Running of the Bells" nights. The same information will be provided on September 26 and October 1.


Visit the BBIS PTO webpage to learn more on how YOU can support BBIS and our PTO.
