Okemo Ski Program Update

Okemo paperwork for students and chaperones is available at BFMS starting today. It is due back on Friday, January 18th. Please keep an ear/eye out for updates on when we will get our passes. Right now, the plan is to get them on our first day. This is the only option Okemo has presented that works for our program.

Dental Opportunities at BFMS

Bellows Falls Middle School has partnered with Springfield Medical Care Systems and the Holt Foundation to offer dental services to your child while at school.

Barbara Hodgkins, RDH from the Children’s Dental Health Project is looking forward to providing dental cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and oral health education to any child at the school. These services are offered at no cost to you. The opportunity for improving dental health is made possible with a grant from the Holt Foundation.

These services are open to all BFMS students and provided at school, whether or not they have dental insurance and whether or not they have a regular dental home.

Please call or email your school Jeannie Hodsden to have the sign up forms sent home with your child.  You may leave a message on the confidential voice mail.  The number is 463-4366 option #5.

You’re cordially invited to attend our Winter Showcase Night on Wednesday, February 6 at 5:30 PM. Light refreshments will be served. (Snow date: February 7)
