Congratulations to Mrs. Palumbo and the third and 4th grade musicians on their performances at the Spring Concert this week. It was a powerful showcase of learning and the arts at BPS. Thanks also to the entire arts team and several staff volunteers who ensured this event went smoothly.

Music Notes

Spring Concert

Congratulations to all the performers at last night's Spring Concert! 

If your student was given a school T-shirt, please have them return it to their classroom teacher as soon as possible. We will take care of washing them. 

The concert videos will be up on the school website soon for anyone who was unable to join us. 

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Palumbo

Help to Keep BPS Clean: Please continue to have your child wear boots/outdoor shoes to school and have a clean pair of shoes to wear in the classroom. Wearing muddy boots/shoes in the classrooms makes the custodial staff's job much harder. Let's all do our part!

PE News: We wrapped up our tennis lessons this week. The students demonstrated a good deal of growth in their skill development. If your child enjoyed this activity, your family can access the tennis courts by the town pool. This is a great community resource and it is free to use!

Next week we will do a quick spring fitness testing so that students can compare their fall and spring scores to see if they have maintained, improved, or need to keep working on their fitness in cardio endurance, core strength, upper body strength and flexibility. 


Please visit the lost and found (in front lobby all next week) before we make donations of unclaimed items during April break! Thank you!

Have a great weekend!

Sarah & Chris
