Families

BNS PTA Committees

 

BNS families are crucial in their children's education.  To inform this partnership, our teachers write descriptive progress reports and every family is scheduled for at least two half-hour conferences each year with their child's teacher.  Teachers and families also communicate regularly through notes and letters sent via the student's folder.

Families are seen as unique resources for the entire school, and are welcome in every classroom.  Participation is encouraged, whether it be coming on a class trip, a weekly or monthly commitment to help with a particular classroom activity or a contribution focused around an annual even such as the Curriculum Share.  Of course, fundraising is critical to BNS and families are critical to fundraising.  Our activities range from grant-writing to a silent auction and dinner dance, the Spring Fling.
