  • Volunteers Needed for New Family Breakfast and Move-up Day - Each spring, BCS hosts two events in order to help our new students transition smoothly to BCS. The first event is the New Family Breakfast, May 17, 2016, 7:45am – 8:30am. This is a great opportunity for the new families to socialize with each other and meet the 3/4 staff and the principals. The second event is Move-up Day, June 13, 9:00am-10:30am. Move-Up Day is a wonderful opportunity for our new students to begin feeling part of BCS.
