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.

Reminder: Please send your appreciation videos by Wednesday, April 22nd

Hello parents!
We hope that you are all staying healthy & enjoying this unexpected time with your families.
As you have probably guessed, we will not be able to celebrate the faculty & staff during faculty & staff appreciation week as originally planned.  However, we have some great alternative celebration ideas.
The first idea is to compile some videos from the kids to say thank you & that they miss their teachers.  We would love for you to have your kids do this and upload them to this google drive:  BCD teacher thank you – Google Drive.
They can be short & sweet & done from your phones.  An example script may be, “Hi Mrs. Allentuck!  I miss you & just wanted to say thank you for all that you’re doing to make virtual school so much fun.  I hope you’re well & I can’t wait to see you again really soon.”
A huge shout out to Kenzie Fields who is coordinating this effort.  Feel free to contact her with questions:  [email protected].
Thank you for your participation in this project to make the teachers feel loved during this unprecedented time. Please send your video’s by Wednesday, April 22nd.
Stay tuned for an email on more celebrations in the coming weeks to honor the faculty & staff.
Stay well,
Jen Glockner & Stephanie Lazar
