Each year David Cevoli and I collaborate on a bookmark competition, funded by the PTA. Students from ES, MS, HS and staff have an opportunity to design a bookmark that will be printed and distributed around campus. Entries are due Monday, December 14th and winners will be announced at the ES Winter concert on Friday the 18th. Entries may be turned in to David or I at any time. Check out the winning designs from last year!

Hanoch Piven, a member of the BFIS community with a daughter in High School, will be presenting his work and doing a workshop with ES students on November 23 & 24. We are now collecting as much STUFF as possible to use in making assemblage style portraits during his workshop.  Stuff such as cartulina, styrofoam, paper towel rolls, egg cartons, bottle tops, screws, nails, old CD’s, stickers, pins, old toys and figurines, combs hairpins, feathers, old computer parts, shells, puzzle pieces, buttons and whatever else you can think of! These things can be delivered to the plastic bin on the white shelf outside the art room door with the attached image.

*Students in grades 3-5 need to bring a piece of cardboard or heavy paper (cartulina) size A3 or 11×17″ with their name and class code on one side as soon as possible and no later than Friday, November 20th. They can deliver these to the art room at any time.  Thank you!

Thank You NoteThank you so much to all the parents who attend our Back to School Night yesterday evening.  We really appreciated the turnout from so many families and are truly grateful to part of a community that deeply values the importance of an outstanding education.

As promised, here is a links to specialists’ presentation.  We hope the parents who were not able to attend will take the time to read through the information.

Throughout the year, we will be updating the blog with information about the different concepts and topics that students are exploring. Our teachers will be using the blog as the primary platform for communicating with parents and we will continue to encourage families to visit the site regularly.

Many thanks again for all the support!
