Grade Level Multicultural Luncheons in December!

We are very excited that we were approved by HPS to host one of our favorite BMSS events this year, Multicultural Luncheon! To follow COVID safety guidelines, it will be split up and each grade level team will be on a different date in Dec, and each class will eat at a different time in the gym (more room to social distance). We have to limit the number of guests to 1-2 per student (no exceptions), and visitors must check in at the main office to do the Raptor screener, wear masks at all times (except when eating), and maintain social distancing. Please see the flyer that will be sent home by your child's teacher for more information.

CCMC PJ Day (Fri, Dec. 10)!

We will be participating in the annual PJ Day on Friday, Dec. 10 where we raise money for CCMC! Here is the URL if you would like to donate online for the event, or you can contribute cash that your child's teacher will collect (like we do on other dress down days): https://give.connecticutchildrens.org/team/394720. We will send home a flyer to remind you the week of the event as well. Thanks for supporting CCMC!

Spreading the Word about Breakthrough South!

Did you know that the 22-23 RSCO School Choice Lottery opens Nov. 8?! We know that the best way for potential students and families to learn about our awesome school is by word of mouth. If you would be willing to help us spread the word about BMSS by putting a lawn sign in your front yard, passing out school flyers or door hangers, or sharing social media posts, please let Mrs. Gustafson know through ParentSquare or email. She will send home a lawn sign and school flyers!
