We strongly encourage parents to be part of our learning community. There are a number of ways to do so:
The school invites parents to volunteer in their child’s classroom. We can use your help in various ways in the classroom and in the building. Tasks can include working with students, duplicating teaching materials, assisting on field trips, center time, etc. All school volunteers must undergo a criminal background check and school board approval prior to volunteering with us. Please download the volunteer application from our website or contact the office at 282-4134 for the necessary paperwork and information.
Attendance at School Functions
Classroom and school-wide sponsored activities are held throughout the school year. Announcements are put forth in the Thursday folders.
Research indicates that reading aloud to children significantly impacts their ability to read. Project Storybook is a community based volunteer reading program. Parents, extended family members, BHS students, and other community-based programs volunteer their time to read to individual children. The time commitment can be minimal such as thirty minutes per week. The children look forward to this special time they share with you. We provide training for this program.
