BPS Comfort Ship

Welcome Students and Families!

We want to provide some resources on social emotional learning.  This is a great place for parents and students to find information, videos, activities, and more.   

Wow, can you believe that we are already into late April! Our Allyship group of 3rd and 4th graders recently gathered outside in the (chilly) sun to add color and positive messages to the sidewalks that grace BPS. Laughter and chatter could be heard as the students worked in small groups and independantly to write messages such as "Stay Kind!," "All Are Welcomed Here!" and "You Are Beautiful!" out in front of the building. This group continues to provide leadership, positivity and ingenuity to our school community which we are very thankful for. 

We challenge and encourage this work to continue even outside of school! How can you and your child(ren) make someone's day brighter? Offer a helping hand? Serve in your community? Perhaps April break will give you and your family the opportunity to brainstorm some ways that you can come together to spread goodness, kindness and positivity just as our students in Allyship have been doing!

From the Counseling office; we hope your spring is full of laughter, rest and self-care. 

In partnership, 

Ms. M & Ms. B

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

More than 1 out of every 5 students report being bullied. National Bullying Prevention Month (NBPM) is a campaign founded in 2006 by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. The campaign is held during the month of October and connects communities around the world to help prevent bullying. The past few years, a worldwide pandemic and a growing movement for racial equity and social justice have highlighted the need to unite communities for a better future. It is more important than ever to join together in creating a world that is kinder, more accepting, and more inclusive. Take action at school, at home, in your neighborhood, at a local business, or in your workplace to show that you care about kids being safe at school, online, and in the community.  (Pacer.org)

Bullying should NEVER be tolerated. If you or someone you know is being bullied, there are things you can do to keep yourself and others safe from bullying. Check out the resources below:
