We have expanded our tutoring support on campus! This year, for ease of use and campus safety, our outside tutoring options are being run through the After School Activities program. We have contracted two excellent tutoring services, Bee Tutored and AE Teaching, who are available to tutor in many different disciplines and times, including during your student’s free periods (depending on approval and availability). Please reach out to Bea Zimmerman with any questions or to sign up (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Because of this new offering, we will no longer be allowing outside tutors, who are not associated with these two programs, to work on campus at any time. Of course, our teachers are still available for extra tutoring of students they do not teach. A current list can be found here: BFIS Staff Tutors Also, please feel free to reach out to Learning Support or a teacher directly for help with these arrangements.
IB Parent Resources- Have questions about the IB program or the International Baccalaureate in general? Here’s a GREAT resource page that can help you learn more about the program that your students are traversing.
Save the Date, SPTC- Don’t forget to mark your calendars for November 11 and 14. That’s when BFIS will be holding our bi-annual Student Parent Teacher Conferences. It’s a wonderful opportunity to sit with your child and their teachers and discuss your student’s progress and work at school. We look forward to seeing you there!
National Honor Society will be starting a peer-to-peer tutoring program where anyone in BFIS in need of tutoring can be paired up with any of our highly-qualified NHS tutors.
All individual tutors will have earned an A- or higher in the subject that they will be tutoring. NHS will pair your student up with a member of NHS with a similar schedule and arrange in-school tutoring sessions covering specific subjects you want help in. To sign up and apply to the NHS tutoring program, all you need to do is fill in NHS Tutoring Program Sign-Up with all of the relevant details.
We are really excited about our annual BFIS CAS Trip on September 28-30th. Please take a moment to look at the information here and return the permission slips to your student’s advisor, including authorization for billing. This trip is integral to their CAS experience and is very popular.
There are no classes or alternative options at school during this time, and any student remaining on campus will not be allowed off campus privileges during these days.
