Our Mission:

The vision of the founding coalition was that the BCMCS would be a model Montessori School, providing a superior learning environment for its students through implementation of individualized Montessori curricula.

Dear BCMCS Families,

It hardly seems possible that we just completed our first full month of the new school year. The students continue to enjoy settling into school routines, reconnecting with old friends as well welcoming new ones. Along with welcoming new students, we have also have a new teacher on our school team who has already begun to make strong connections with both students and staff alike. Inclusion Teacher, Mr. Ciotti, has been assigned UE2 classroom and brings a variety of experiences to BCMCS, complementing the talents and expertise of our entire Lower Elementary team. Be sure to welcome him to our school community.

Please note all the events slated for this month, as many of our school sponsored and outside program Clubs Fall sessions have begun. Especially note Picture Day slated for Thursday, October 29th. As always, be sure to follow the school’s Quick Reference Calendar, found in the Quick Links section of our home page under Calendars, for all such up-to-date listings of pertinent school events.

In addition to school initiated events, also note the PTA sponsored proceedings set for October, which include:

•PTA MEETING: Wednesday, October 14th -- 'New Parent Meet & Greet' from 7:00-7:30p, followed by general PTA meeting starting at 7:30p
•BCMCS FAMILY HAYRIDE & BONFIRE @ SNIPES FARM: Saturday, October 17th 6:00 – 8:30p. Forms to be sent home. Please contact Kat Graves @ 267-496-0003 with any questions.

As always, the PTA appreciates all of their new 2015 PTA members who have recently joined, and want to remind you that anyone can join the BCMCS PTA, at any time, for only $8.

Finally, as a result of an internal assessment of our Foreign Language curriculum, and subsequent planning strategy thereafter involving teachers and students, it was decided to move away from our past use of the Rosetta Stone program to, what we believe, is a more responsive, advanced, entertaining dual combination Language System. Thus, we have replaced Rosetta Stone with a combination of the DuoLingo and LanguageNut programs for all students. Both programs, like Rosetta Stone, are web based with numerous language options. Both programs are linked to the Teacher/Department section of the BCMCS website for your preview and use -- please be sure to review the PowerPoint, in the same section, for setting up your student’s DuoLingo account so that these it can be utilized at home as well.

As always, take care and until next time. . .
Mr. Brian Long
