Dear Parents and Guardians of Grade 5 Students:

I am writing to inform you that the Briscoe Middle School will be hosting our annual Principal’s Coffee for parents/guardians of current Grade 5 students who attend the Beverly Public Schools or reside in Beverly.  This event will be held on Friday, December 5, 2014 from 9:30 AM to approximately 10:30 AM in the Briscoe Middle School Library.

The purpose of this event is to give parents/guardians an opportunity to visit the building, discuss the Grade 6 curriculum and schedule, as well as address other questions that you may have regarding Briscoe Middle School.  It is our hope to provide you with the information necessary to make a well-informed decision about your child’s future educational pursuits.  In addtion, we will be hosting a Grade 5 Move Up Night for all students and parents/guardians on Thursday, January 22, 2015.  I will pass along more information regarding this event at a later date.

If you are planning on attending the Principal’s Coffee, I would appreciate it if you could notify my secretary, Ms. Lynda DeCourcy, at 978-921-6103 X151, so that we may accommodate all individuals who wish to attend.  I look forward to meeting many of you on the 5th!

Dismissal Procedures

Dear Cove Families,

If your child is not riding the bus, please have him/her bring a note to state who is picking them up or if they are attending an after school activity. We greatly appreciate your help with this. Safety is a big concern for us and we need to track where all students are going at the end of the day. Thank you : )

Also, please know that this year we are dismissing all bus students first. Walkers and parent pick-ups will be dismissed as soon as the buses are fully loaded.
