The staff at the BECC would like to welcome all of you back or, for those of you who are new, welcome you to the BECC for the 2013-14 school year. We look forward to a wonderful year with you and your child.
We have had a few staff changes over the summer. Andrea Hayes, our Friendly Frogs teacher, has accepted a new position in the district. She will now be a Team Chairperson at Pine Glen and Francis Wyman. Kristin Fiorino, our Tiny Turtles teacher, has accepted another teaching position closer to her home. While we will miss both Andrea’s and Kristin’s expertise, compassion, and dedication, we wish them the best of luck in their new positions.
We are excited to announce the addition of two new teachers to the BECC staff. Megan Rafferty and Carmel Higgins will be joining our staff. Megan has worked as a substitute teacher at the BECC as well as an Instructional Assistant at our elementary schools. Carmel comes to us from working in the Boston Public Schools. We are fortunate to have their experience at the BECC.
By now you should have received a letter from your child’s classroom teacher with general information about your child’s class plus information regarding our Open House scheduled for Wednesday 9/4. The first day of school for the BECC is Monday 9/9 for our students attending our 5-day program and afternoon program. The first day of school for our students attending our 3-day program is Tuesday, 9/10.
One of the many projects at Burlington High School this year was the first part of a repaving project. The driveway that leads around the high school to the preschool was completely redone, and the painting was just finished on Friday. Because of this, we will be making some changes to our drop-off/pick-up policy, and visitor parking. As soon as the changes are approved, the policy will be posted on the Director’s Blog as well as the Classroom Blogs. This will be announced prior to the start of school.
We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday for Open House. If you have any questions prior to Open House, please contact your child’s teacher or contact Deborah (781-273-7632) or Sandy (781-270-1808) in the office. We are always available to answer your questions.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
The BECC Staff
