The BCD Parents Association Steering Committee is working on creating a Parent Business Directory for the BCD community in an effort to better introduce the many professionals engaged in our school. As busy families, we often do not have the opportunity to learn about the impressive work of fellow parents nor may we realize the resources and services available to us within our own BCD parent community. Our hope is that the Parent Business Directory is a way for our families to support businesses owned by or that employs BCD parents and to provide a resource for you to network within our community.
We offer the directory as a service to our families. Our including a business in the directory does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement on the school’s part.
