Please join us for an evening of conversation about the skills and knowledge that young people need in the world and workplaces of the 21st century, and how the Bay Farm Montessori curriculum seeks to develop these in our students. Hauke Kite-Powell and Liz Titus will lead the discussion. Refreshments will be served. Childcare is available for children 2.5 years and older. Please RSVP to Kyra at email@example.com if you would like to reserve a spot for childcare.
Parents of toddlers moving to the Children's House and Children's House students moving into Kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year are invited to Moving-Up Night next Wednesday. Parents will learn about the next level's curriculum, logistics, teachers, and instruction.
Moving-Up Night will be held in the Kingfisher and Osprey Rooms in the Children's House. The schedule is as follows:
6:30 - 7:15 pm Toddlers to Children's House
7:30 - 8:15 pm Children's House to Kindergarten
Many of Bay Farm's Winter Enrichment classes begin next week. There is still space in some classes, but on a limited basis. To register, please drop by the office to complete a registration form or visit: http://www.bfarm.org/enrichment-programs. Additional copies of the brochure are available in the office.
We want to remind families that the first semester of pizza lunch continues through the end of January. The next session of pizza lunch begins in early February, so if you would like to continue pizza lunch for your child, you will need to sign up again. We will notify you when new sign-up forms are available.
Bay Farm will host an Admissions Open House on Thursday, January 19th from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Families of toddlers through middle school students are invited to attend and learn about Bay Farm's Montessori curriculum, tour the campus, and meet staff and faculty members. Please spread the word by inviting your friends and neighbors to our Open House. If you would like a friend to receive a personal invitation, please email their address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event of an emergency or severe weather preventing Bay Farm from opening or requiring an early dismissal, you will receive an email notifying you. The school has registered all parent email addresses with an outside service called Remind. As a result, you will receive an email in the event of an emergency or school closing.
You can also receive a text message if you opt to do so. If you would like to receive text messages when Bay Farm is closed, please do the following:
Text this number: 81010
Text this message: @bayfarmall
You will get a text back confirming you have joined the school broadcast.
Additionally, Bay Farm will continue to also communicate school closing news via the following methods:
1. An email blast will go out to all family email addresses.
2. A text message will be sent to all mobile phone numbers. (If you opted in through the directions above.)
3. A voicemail message will be sent to all phone numbers.
4. We will post the closure on Facebook and on Bay Farm’s website.
5. We will contact the local news affiliates, including NBC (WHDH, CH 7), ABC (WCVB, CH 5) , CBS (WBZ-TV, CH 4), and FOX (CH 25), who will post the closings on their website and/or list on their TV news stations.
6. We will post this with WPLM (1390AM) Radio in Plymouth.
When power lines are down, it can be difficult for the school to get the word out and for families to access the information; therefore we provide many ways to communicate.
If the weather is bad and the School is open, families are encouraged to use their own best judgment and to travel only at their own discretion.
We would like to kindly ask Children’s House families to not arrive early to school. Elementary and middle school families begin their drop off at 8:15am as those students must be in their classrooms by 8:30am. While we appreciate your promptness and eagerness to arrive to school on time, the driveway becomes backed-up and delays our elementary and middle school students from arriving on time. Children’s House arrivals do not begin until 8:30am. Thank you for your consideration.
