Also, Band Forms were sent home via backpacks this week (hard copy) and shared by Ms. Anna (electronically). If your child is interested in the after school band program, please submit the form asap. Here is a link to the letter:  Band Letter Home 2018_19 (1)

Also, there was a loud speaker announcement made by a couple of student school representatives about a NO PLACE FOR HATE Student School Diversity Committee forming. The application is open to students in Grades 5-8. If your child is interested in applying to join this committee he/she should fill out the form that was shared with his/her BSI google drive account. We believe in the power of student voice and choice. We believe that diversity brings unity. We believe that communication builds connection and understanding. We believe in the power of collaboration and community! In Ms. Ferguson’s words: One Tribe!
