From the BEES
The BEES March meeting date has been moved to THURSDAY MARCH 12th, 6:30 to 7:45 PM in the school library.
Nicole McKeon will be attending to explain more about the Woodstock-based Covered Bridge Neighborhood Afterschool Program for 2015-2016. Go to the web site www.coveredbridgeneighborhood.com for more information and email her at email@example.com to pre-register for the program. Spaces are limited, and we still have not worked out transportation from Barnard Academy. It would be helpful to know how many Barnard parents might need this service.
The Twin Farms BEES Dinner will be SUNDAY MARCH 22nd. Thank you to Twin Farms for once again offering to provide an exceptional dining experience for 60 guests. The cost of the dinner is $125 per person and all of the money goes to the BEES! A special thank you to the Barnard Academy parents who work at Twin Farms and will be helping to create this wonderful evening.
BEES President, Nicole Conte Stevens, will only take reservations via her cell phone starting at NOON on SUNDAY FEBRUARY 22nd. 802.236.9663. Calls will be returned in the order that they are received. The BEES will send out an email invitation reminder to Barnard Academy parents and staff closer to 2/22. We hope that you will consider joining in our largest fundraiser of the year.
If anyone would like information from the January Community Education Forum on youth substance abuse prevention, or would like to help plan a follow-up meeting or series for parents and/or families, please contact Nicole at 234.9786.
See you at school,
Mrs. Anne Koop
