Open House – volunteers needed

We will be holding our Kindergarten Open houses this year on Thursday, April 20th and Friday, April 21st.  Many of you have helped out in the past with leading the tours or signing families in and know how much fun it is meeting new families and sharing the excitement of BSI.
For those of you who have not lead a tour in the past and may not know what exactly is involved in helping with Open Houses –  having been a volunteer myself for a few years in the past as a BSI parent, I can tell you how exciting it is to see hopeful families coming to tour BSI.  As a tour guide you get to take prospective families around school and into the classrooms (a great opportunity to see classes in action as a parent!).  I will send you complete information including exact tour route with details about every room you will be visiting and general info about our great school, so you will have all the information you need to lead a tour.  It’s only an hour and a half in the morning and it really is a lot of fun!
We need your help to sign families in and to lead the tours!  Please sign up here if you are available April 20th and/or April 21st between the hours of 8:15 AM and 10 AM.  Please email Maryana – msigalova@bsi686.org if you have any questions. Thank you very much!

Water Test Res

Dear Families,

We have heard from many of you today who are concerned about the lead test results reported by the DOE this morning.

Here’s a vital piece of information: the faucet in the kitchen that reported the highest level of lead is part of a steam kettle that has NEVER been used by our kitchen staff.  It has not been used for cooking, and it has not been used for washing dishes or hands.  It has not been used — period.  That is apparently why the reading came up so high.

I hope this is helpful information.  We will continue to share any reports provided by the DOE.

all best,

Donna
