PARENT CONFERENCES ON FRIDAY

We have a half-day scheduled for Friday, October 20th.  This will allow for conferences to take place on that afternoon.  There are sign up sheets at the front office.  You can also email the teacher/teachers you are interested in meeting with.  This is not a mandatory conference, but it is a good time to meet with the first nine weeks behind us.  

 

SWIM MEET RESCHEDULED

The MAIS swim meet is rescheduled for Thursday, Oct 19th.

The first session (1st-3rd grades) begins warm-up at 9:00.

The meet starts at 10:00.  

The second session (4th-6th grades) begins warm-up at 12.

SPIRIT WEEK DRESS

If your child is not interested in dressing up, that’s ok.  You can just send your student to school in a BDS school uniform or BDS PE attire.  On Walking Yearbook Day, your child can wear any t-shirt to school.  We will start the day with an autograph session in the gym.  The students will then change into their newly autographed shirts.  The students will not autograph the shirts while on a student’s body.

“Did I offer peace today?  Did I bring a smile to someone’s face?  Did I say words of healing?  Did I let go of my anger and resentment?  Did I forgive?  Did I love?  These are the real questions.  I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.”

~Henri Nouwen
