Dear Parents and Guardians,
It doesn’t seem as though the school year should be wrapping up, yet here we are in June, with only fifteen and a half days of school remaining! If your son or daughter is entering Barnstable Intermediate School, this newsletter will serve as one of my last communications with you. If you are the parent of a student in grade four, my next official correspondence will be in the summer. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please contact me at 508-420-2272 or feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2009-2010 school year has been positive. We have come a long way, together, from the beginning stages of the district reorganization and aftershocks of budget reductions. Seven elementary schools have come together under one roof and the enthusiasm and spirit of staff, students, parents, and families has been contagious. My thanks go out to the fourth and fifth grade students who made BHMCS 4/5 a success, along with all of the grade four and grade five teachers, support staff, and administrative team. In order to ensure we are able to continue meeting the needs of current and future students, please fill out the attached survey and return it in the envelope provided to your child’s homeroom teacher. Your feedback is important and we want to hear from you. Please return the survey by Friday June 11. Responses will be tabulated, help formulate adjustments for 2010-2011, and be shared in our Annual Report.

As children grow older, it is important to consistently reiterate your expectations and provide tools for your son or daughter to stay out of harm’s way. With summer just around the corner, I thought it might be helpful to share safety tips provided by the Barnstable Police Department:
Remember, the best defense to an unsafe situation is to prevent it all together!
Thank you for a terrific school year, and
best wishes for a safe and enjoyable summer vacation!
