Dear BTS Parents,
We hope that you had a great holiday. At BTS we are preparing to open our doors on Sunday January 14th for the first day of classes for another semester filled with exciting, and meaningful time with you and your families.
To get ready for our semester on this same day, we will be holding a Parent Orientation day. Your attendance is very important for this day for a few reasons listed below. Please remember to bring your calendars, and meet us in the library upstairs after you sign in your children.
Please arrive at 9:45 AM the program begins sharp at 10 AM.

BTS is a community school so we have made an effort to establish more organized ways of parent involvement in running our school more efficiently. On this day we will go over a few but here is the synopsis.

PARENT CLASSROOM COORDINATORS:
We are asking our parents to sign up to their child’s classroom to volunteer their time to be a Parent Classroom Coordinator to support our teachers and to develop our community stronger. Please sign up for January, February, March, April or May whichever fits your schedule best. Each coordinator will plan one social activity per month for their classroom students outside of school. (Play at the park, movie night etc)
Aid teachers in classroom setup and cleanup
Manage the classroom’s library check- in and checkout by bringing the classroom box to the classroom at the beginning of the day, and returning it at the end.
Rotate monthly, and train the next coordinator on the last day of your shift.
Please Sign up on registration day or we will assign randomly
