October's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Families,

It hardly seems possible that we have just completed our first full month of the new school year. The students have truly settled in to their school routines, having reconnected with old friends as well as connecting with new ones.

Please note the school events slated for this month. For starters, all of our Fall school and outside sponsored programs / clubs have begun -- especially note Picture Day slated for Tuesday, October 18th. 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 events, also note the PTA sponsored proceedings set for October, which include:

• PTA MEETING: MONDAY [unlike the regularly scheduled Wednesday], October 17th , beginning at 7:30p
• BCMCS FAMILY HAYRIDE & BONFIRE @ SNIPES FARM: Saturday, October 15th 6:00 – 8:30p. Forms will be sent home and posted on school website soon. Please contact Kat Graves @ 267-496-0003 with any questions.

As always, the PTA appreciates all of the new 2016-17 PTA members who have already joined, and want to remind you that anyone can join the BCMCS PTA at any time for only $8.

As always, Take Care . . .
Mr. Brian Long

My School Account
Last year, our school announced the launch of a new online service "MY SCHOOL ACCOUNT" allowing parents to monitor your children’s lunchtime purchases, track what your children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low.

This year we are expanding the capabilities of the My School Account to also manage payments of all additional school sponsored activities, such as field trips, fundraisers, purchase of year books, play tickets....etc.

Starting in October of 2016, online student debit accounts linked to a credit/debit card or checking account will be the only way to place a lunch order or make any other purchases through the school. Checks or cash sent to the school will no longer be acceptable forms of payment.

If you haven't already created an account, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. See the above hyperlink for directions on how to create your My School Account or to Log In and Manage your account.
