BSD Parent/Guardian Survey
Greetings Parents/Guardians and Community Members,
Thank you to all who were able to participate in the Community Forums and contribute to our system vision. I wanted to give you an individual opportunity to share your thoughts regarding your child's school. This information will assist me in the analysis of areas that need improvement in specific schools. Your responses will also contribute to the development of our Strategic Plan and Multi-Year planning process.

Please take 10 minutes to support our schools and provide this feedback by Monday, November 30. Thank you.

Game Night, Dec. 3

Report cards will be distributed to students on Tuesday, November 24th.  If you do not receive your child’s report card on that date, please contact the school.  This date was changed for all district elementary schools because of the implementation of a new student assessment data system.  As it sometimes takes more time and effort to implement a new system, we want to make sure the information is recorded accurately.   
If your child has outgrown her/his winter coat from last year, have you considered donating it to a family in need?  We are accepting donations of winter coats in good condition to distribute to children who don’t have them.  When we receive a coat, we wash it and give it to someone who can use it.  Thank you for your generosity. 
The Marine Corps League of Vermont is once again organizing a gift collection program for families in need during the holiday season.  The toys are collected in big red barrels (such as the one in our main office) and then turned over to area agencies for distribution to families.  Tax-exempt donations may also be sent to Toys for Kids at P.O. Box 4092, Burlington, VT 05406.  Once again, we thank you for your donations to this worthy program. 
A number of Smith School alumni will be appearing in “Seussical, the Musical” this weekend at B.H.S.  It is always great to see former students pursuing their talents on and off stage as they grow into responsible young adults.  “Seussical” will be presented on November 19th and 20th at 7:00 p.m. and at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on November 21st.   The Very Merry Theatre will be working with our school again this year to put on our own production.  It will be “Aladdin,” and it will be presented in February. 
(We will be holding an informational meeting for parents and guardians of potential play participants on December 10th at 5:30 p.m.)  In March, we will hold our annual school concert as part of Music in our Schools Month.  It’s great to support the fine arts in our school and in the community as a whole! 
We hope your family will be able to attend “Game Night” on Thursday, December 3rd from 6:30-7:30 p.m.  We will be playing lots of fun Math-related games that also help us develop our problem-solving skills.  Please join us!
There will be no school next Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  My best wishes are yours for a holiday season filled with peace, joy, happiness, and safety for you and all the members of your family.
Thanks for all you are doing—and will do—to make our school community one of safety, respect, and responsibility for all who come through our doors.
