No School - Thanksgiving Break

The All-School Meeting held on January 21 began with an introduction of our new teachers, Hari Berzins and Lucia Gruber. Hari is returning to BMS to teach social studies with the Unknowns. They will be working on developing and running a TED-x Floyd event later this spring. Lucia is bringing music and movement to all our students in enrichment classes every Monday. Parents were also reminded that students must be picked up from their classrooms at the end of the school day. If someone other than a child's parent is going to pick the child up, a parent must contact a member of the staff before hand.
Another exciting opportunity coming up is for parents. The BMS Parenting Group is starting again on Thursday, January 31, from 3:15 to 4:30 at school. Everyone is welcome (you don't have to be a BMS parent to attend), and we will be discussing the first Chapter of The Whole Brain Child by Daniel Siegel. We will also be taking some quiet time together, so even if you have not read the book you are welcome to join us. The book is available at Notebooks in Floyd.
School Director Shelly Emmett took a few moments to review some upcoming calendar items and mentioned that the two snow make-up days scheduled for later in the year are canceled unless we have a need for them.
The committee is also working on the upcoming 4th Annual Mardi Gras Ball. Jamie listed a few ways you can help (besides coming to the party and having a great time!)
Next, Kristan Morrison, the president of the Board, mentioned some board news. She shared the recent appointments to the board of Trustees Jack Wall, Kamala Bauer, Susan Slate, and herself. She also spoke about the ongoing workshops the board has been engaging in to help build a stronger organization. Finally, she invited everyone to attend Board meetings, which are set for the second Wednesday at 6:30 pm. Keep an eye out for notices as meetings come up.
To wrap up the meeting, Shelly introduced the topics for the 2013 BMS Summer Camps. Watch for more info coming in the next few weeks!
