Dear Beaver Meadow School Families,

Welcome and welcome back! I hope that your summers were happy and healthy and that you are looking forward to the year ahead both during and after the school day. To that end, I’d like to share some information with you about an after school program that is held right here at BMS!

Brittany Bishop, our new site director (starting Sept. 11) and staff members from the YMCA, will join me (known to some as “Mrs. K,” or Cathy), Beaver Meadow teachers and staff, and Concord High School students, each afternoon for three hours of fun and enriching activities – including time to complete homework.

Our weekly schedule looks like this (enrichment activities begin on Sept.11):

*Enrichment activities will include, but are not limited to: STEM Building Challenges, STEAM projects, Gardening, Creative Writing, Arts/Crafts, Fiber Art, Strategy Games, (No-cook) Cooking, Music, Outdoor Sports and Sportsmanship. Activities will run for four weeks in each time slot; students will select new activities (from the same list of offerings) for the second four weeks of the session.

A registration form must be completed for all children who attend the after school program. To answer some of the questions you may have about registration/fees:

You may schedule your child/children to attend the after school program at no cost for up to six hours in order to take advantage of specific enrichment programs offered on particular days. If your child/children attend(s) the after school program for those six hours only, they will not be eligible for care on snow days and vacation days unless parents/guardians fill out all necessary applications and paperwork for scholarships and aid. All families are able to sign up for vacation camps using a separate registration form available at Beaver Meadow School prior to vacation weeks.

As of September 11, there will be a late bus (leaving BMS at 5:30 pm) available to transport students home.

There is a $40.00 registration fee per family at the time of registration.  If a family is applying for assistance (regardless of receiving assistance) or if they receive the state childcare scholarship, the registration fee is waived and the member rate is extended to them automatically. 

Members of the 21C staff will be available on back-to-school night to answer questions and assist with paperwork, but we are happy to assist before then, as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me (Cathy Kaplan at ckaplan@sau8.org) or Susan Farrelly (Concord School District 21C Director at sfarrelly@sau8.org) if you have any questions or concerns.

Looking forward to a great year!

Sincerely yours,

Cathy Kaplan (a.k.a. Mrs. K, Cathy, and Cat-Diggity-Dog (-;)
