Naming of the New Middle School

The School Committee has opened the process for receiving suggestions regarding the naming of the new middle school.  Nominations should be sent to the School Committee President, Kris Silverstein, in writing by April 14, 2017 to be considered at the April 26, 2017 School Committee Meeting.  Please send any nominations to  Visit School Committee Policy F-4 available on the School Committee page for further details.

BHS Principal Search

We are looking for parents, teachers and students to serve on the screening committee which will begin its work at the end of the month.  Please let me know if you are interested.  We are also conducting focus forums next week which was relayed to you in a ConnectEd.

Digital Etiquette

The year is full of events and performances at the schools.  It is a time to enjoy the accomplishments of our students. Remember in this digital age there is Digital Etiquette to follow:

Digital etiquette maintains that someone who takes a picture/video should always ask the people in that picture/video for permission before posting it on the internet.   Parents often post pictures/videos from sporting events, recitals, birthday parties, and school functions online.  If those pictures/videos include other children, the parent needs to obtain permission from the parents of ALL students involved.  

We need families, teachers, and community members to be aware of this policy when they are at school events such as grade level programs, field day, field trips, and even when visiting our classrooms and cafeteria.  We have parents who prefer that their child's picture/video not be posted online.  If you take pictures please do not share them online without consent from the parents of students pictured.

This is not just a school issue.  It is a community issue, as we want all children to be both safe and respected.
