Weekly Bulletin

The end of year PARCC schedule will be starting on Monday, May 19, 2014 and running through June 2, 2014.  Each class is scheduled for two days of testing during that time period and will continue with their regular daily schedule when not testing.  It is important for students to be present and on time to school to minimize disruptions.  The PARCC schedule was sent home with students last week. Please feel free to call if you have additional questions.

A big THANK YOU to all our Field Day volunteers for their help this year!  Students love to see parents and older BHS students here and involved.  It was a successful and FUN day.  Mr. Rebelo and Mr. Magee did a wonderful job preparing the students for the day and executing this exciting activity!  THANK YOU!!

Francis Wyman Student Council is holding a drive to benefit More than Words, a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business. Please donate gently used or like new books, video tapes,  DVDs, Blu-Rays, video games, and CDs to help this organization. The drive will run through May 23rd.
