Happy Valentine’s Day from the Parents’ Association!

Please join us this Friday, February 15th for our mid-winter meeting at 8:15 am in the Kevin Hirt Library and Learning Commons. We look forward to sharing updates about WiseBodies parent workshops and an upcoming Salon Series in Columbia County. The February meeting is a great time to brainstorm new ideas and reflect on past events.

All are welcome, especially if you haven’t attended a meeting before!

Welcome Back and Happy New Year!

The Parents’ Association is thrilled to begin 2019 with a Welcome Back meeting this Friday, January 11 at 8:15 am in the Kevin Hirt Library and Learning Commons.

We thank all the BCD families who contributed to the Holiday Gift Drive! The Department of Children and Families was incredibly thankful. Your generosity was felt by 75 children and their families.

We also hope that you were able to shop at the lovely Book Fair, as well as purchase some BCD gear and water bottles. We still have some available!

This Friday, we will be preparing for many of the winter and spring activities that the BCD community looks forward to, including Alaska Day, the Salon Series, and Faculty and Staff Appreciation Week.

Please join us! We look forward to seeing you!

REMINDER – BOOK FAIR and HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE

The Parents’ Association has several opportunities for you to participate in this year’s Book Fair. Please click HERE to sign up. We will need help with setup on Wednesday, December 12th, with sales on Thursday, December 13th, and with sales and packing up on Friday, December 14th.

The Book Fair is a wonderful event, with books for children and adults curated by Lenox’s The Bookstore owner, Matt Tannenbaum. Teacher wish lists will be available as well! This year, we will also be selling BCD winter hats and stainless steel water bottles. Don’t miss out on a unique chance to get some holiday shopping done. CASH and CHECKS ONLY.

Holiday Gift Drive tags came home this week. Please wrap your gift(s) and make sure your tag is attached. You can return your gifts from 7:45 – 8:30 am Wednesday 12/12 – Monday 12/17 in the small outside room (aka Bat Cave) to the left of the main entrance to Albright. Also, a parent volunteer will be collecting gifts before the Winter Concert on Friday 12/14 at the Fitzpatrick Gym entrance.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

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.
