Dear BCAM Students and Families,


We hope this message finds you well.  You have recently received the following:

  • Your 1st Semester (1st & 2nd Quarters) Report Card
  • Your Updated Transcript, with 1st Semester Grades Added


Also, please be reminded of the following upcoming calendar dates:

  • Fri, February 12thDOE Holiday, No Classes.
  • Mon, February 15th- Fri, February 19thMidwinter Break/Credit Recovery: This is a vacation week for many, but BCAM will hold Virtual Midwinter Credit Recovery this week for students who are required to make up past NX’s (incompletes) before they turn to failed classes.  You will receive notification if this applies to you.
  • Mon, February 22nd- Return to Live Classes & New Extra-Curricular Programs Begin: Welcome back from break!  Please keep an eye out for a brand new set of BCAM Spring Semester Virtual Extra-Curricular Programs to be offered to all students.
  • Fri, February 26th- BCAM Annual Black Excellence Day: Please join us on this day for wonderful workshops, panel discussions, calls to action, and performances- all dedicated to developing and showcasing African-American culture and excellence with our students.   There will be a call for student proposals and auditions coming soon.


In addition, there is still no formal word on when and if we will return to our buildings for blended learning.  However, middle school blended-learning students are now required to return February 25th, so high schools may be next.  Again, this is only for families that previously agreed and wish to send students back to blended learning.  All families are able to keep students learning remotely.


And of course, we encourage you to review our website at www.bcamhs.org and Twitter/Instagram @bcamhs to keep up to date with our school and access our calendar.  And please contact our all-star Parent Coordinator Joseph Cooper (718)230-5748, Ext. 338, jcooper12@schools.nyc.gov ) with any issues.  Thank you as always for your partnership and participation.
