Last Day of School Message

Dear BFMS Parents and Guardians,

Today is the last of school!   Your child will be bringing home their final report card today (5th, 6th, 7th grades). I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our families a happy and healthy summer. For families not be returning to BFMS in the fall, I would like to extend our well wishes for you and your family.

The PTO is looking for one parent per class to be the point of contact for organizing future events and fundraising activities. If you are interested in being a contact person, please let me know and I will have the PTO reach out to you. NOTE: There is no obligation to attend the PTO meetings, they are simply looking for support from the classes and thought having a contact person per class would be helpful.

For those families returning, I will have our school supply list posted on our school website and I will be sending out my first parent email of the new school year in the beginning of August.

 Have a wonderful, restful summer!

Karen Bukowski
