Successful Spring Salon Series Evening

Tuesday evening, BCD parent, filmmaker, and CEO of the global campaign, Girl Rising, Christina Lowery, led a film viewing and discussion. The inspiring, hopeful, and powerful film highlights the incredible work she is doing for girls and society around the world. Christina’s message is that educating girls is the best investment we can make toward ending poverty, violence, inequality. Her film is used to spread this message and encourage others to educate and empower girls.

Upcoming Parents’ Association (PA) Meeting is this Friday, May 4 at 8:15 am. We will be planning for Fun and Field Day and discuss upcoming events. The meeting will be in the Kevin Hirt Learning Commons. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

How To Host a Fresh Air Fund Child

The Parents’ Association was delighted to welcome Kenzie Fields from New Marlborough, MA to talk about her experiences hosting children from the Fresh Air Fund at our most recent meeting. Kenzie was an incredibly engaging and moving speaker. She shared personal stories about her family’s involvement with the Fresh Air Fund, provided details about how the program works, and answered many questions.

BCD Parents’ Association

All parents are members of the Parents’ Association. Active participation on the Association’s committees and their projects gives parents opportunities to become better acquainted with one another and with the life of the school. Though volunteering is not required, the expectation is that each parent will volunteer to work on two school functions. Volunteer activities contribute substantially to the well-being and overall healthy environment at BCD. Over the years, the School has been fortunate in having all parents give willingly of their time and talent to enrich BCD.
