Today (Wednesday, September 28, 2016) during our morning preschool session, we had a practice fire drill which we now call an evacuation drill. It was short and went very well, but we wanted you to be aware of it incase your child wants to talk with you about it. Each classroom has individually practiced for the evacuation drill to prepare for whole school drills like today. If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the main office.
Hello BECC families! It’s been a great two weeks seeing our old friends and meeting new ones. Now it is time for the BECC Back to School Night. This night is scheduled for Tuesday, October 18, 2016 from 6:30-7:30 PM. This is a night designed for parents/guardians only to come to your child’s class and learn about your child’s day. We hope you can join us.
Because of the large amount of families attending, this is not a time for individual conferences. We cannot discuss your child’s progress in front of other families due to confidentiality issues.
Your child’s teacher will provide you with more specific information pertaining to your child’s specific class. We look forward to seeing you all on October 18th!
The BECC will be closed from August 8-August 19, 2016. We will reopen on Monday, August 22nd. We will respond to any office voice mail the week of August 22nd. Classroom teachers will be mailing out their letters in the next two weeks to our BECC families to let you all know which classroom your child will be placed. Enjoy the rest of you summer!
On behalf of the entire BECC staff, we would like to thank all of you for the wonderful luncheon you hosted for us today! Everything was delicious and disappeared quickly! We loved the barbecue theme, and the mason jars will be great for all the water we drink daily.
We would like to give a special thank you to Laura Parrillo and Shannon Tedesco for organizing and planning this event.
If you brought any dishes or plates in, you can stop in anytime next week to pick them up.
Again thank you all for your work and generosity in making this special luncheon for us. We are truly privileged to work with you and your children.

BURLINGTON — Chief Michael R. Kent reports that the Burlington Police Department is investigating reports that a suspicious man in a vehicle approached a child near a bus stop.
As a result, Burlington Police are urging residents and parents to be on the lookout for an older model green Cadillac car driven by a white male, likely in his mid-60s.
Yesterday, at approximately 3:05 p.m., a 6-year-old boy told his mother that he was approached by a man in an “older green car” near the intersection of Gedick and Gibson roads. The man allegedly asked the boy’s name and where he lived. The children ran home and told his mother who called Burlington Police.
Police responded to the area and talked to two other children who said that they had seen an older model green Cadillac car, either two or four doors.
A license plate was subsequently called in by an off-duty officer but an investigation determined that this was not the suspect vehicle, and that this vehicle had not been in the area of the Wednesday incident.
Burlington Police are investigating the incident and have taken the following additional measures:
Additionally, Chief Kent and Superintendent of Schools Eric Conti are encouraging parents to have frank and honest discussions with their children about strangers and safety while walking to and from school or the bus stop.
“The safety of our children priority number one, and we want to get this message out to the public to ensure that people have their eyes open at all times,” Chief Kent said. “Anyone who sees anything suspicious is urged to contact Burlington Police right away.”
If anyone sees anything suspicious or has any information on Wednesday incident, they are urged to contact Burlington Police Youth Services Officer Steve Cross at 781-272-1212.
Please join us for our next presentation Understanding Executive Functioning
Presented by OTA Wakefield
Wednesday, March 9th , 7:00-9:00pm (doors open at 6:45)
Ever wonder what executive functioning is?
When kids have issues with executive functioning, any task that requires planning, organization, memory, time management and flexible thinking becomes a challenge.
The more you know about the challenges, the better you’ll be able to help your child build executive skills and manage the difficulties.
Join us for a discussion about what executive functions are and how they impact learning and everyday living.
We hope you can join us for what’s shaping up to be a very informative night!
*In addition, Jessica Reedy from the Burlington Youth & Family Services Center will be there for an introduction to their services.
