June 2nd Trip (5/6 Grade) To Southwick’s Zoo

Southwicks_Zoo_-sign-2Sept2007As the date of our 5/6 grade trip to the Southwick’s Zoo approaches, we wanted to remind parents of some important details. Students will be departing BFMS at 7:30 AM and returning at 6:30 PM – should there be a delay in our arrival time, it will be posted on the school website and on our Facebook page. Please make sure your child packs the following items: lunch, water bottle, sun block, and extra snacks. We recommend students wear sturdy shoes on this day as there will be a lot of walking on the trip (no flip-flops, please).

Walk @ Advisory Day

IMG_3077On Wednesday April 27th all BFMS students and teachers took part in “Walk @ Advisory Day” and did a full loop around Bellows Falls. As part of a Blue Cross Blue Shield “National Walk at Lunch Day” initiative, we set a goal and incorporated a fun walk around town in order to encourage our students to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Studies have found that regular walking, particularly at a brisk pace of 3 mph, can substantially reduce the risk of developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Additionally, simply performing 30 minutes of moderate physical activity at least five times a week has significant health benefits and can lower the risk of developing or dying from hypertension or type 2 diabetes, and improve the health of muscles, bones and joints. The weather’s getting warmer – don’t forget to walk!
