Dear Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Barnstable Horace Mann Charter School, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school.
During the 2010-11 school year, we have continued to address the changes in grade-level configuration undertaken in response to the Barnstable Public Schools reorganization, begun during the 2008-09 school year. As our approved charter amendment indicates, in September of 2009 we became a school which serves all grade 4 and 5 students in the Town of Barnstable. Through the extraordinary work of our school’s Administration and its Management Team, the process of integrating grade 4 students, teachers, and parents into our school community has been highly successful. While there is work remaining to create a truly seamless curriculum with appropriate assessments, we continue to be a school of collegial professionals working together to provide excellence for all!
With the ongoing support of the Board of Trustees, we have continued to develop the school’s technological capabilities through the purchase and installation of a new server. This addition provides reliable support for our student technology labs, classroom Promethean Boards and staff laptop computers. The infusion and effective use of technology is a focus of our charter. We are delighted to be able to upgrade the technology available in our school to meet the highest standards of education.
Throughout the 2011-12 school year, our school community will work diligently to address the changing needs of our students and their families. We believe that our hard work has been productive in the past, and we are proud of our accomplishments. We will continue to do our very best to provide you and your children with excellence in education. Should you have any questions regarding BHMCS, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of the Board of Trustees.
