Dear BCAM Families:

We hope this letter at the beginning of our 3rd Academic Quarter finds you well.  We want to thank all our families for their continued support and partnership with our school.  We have successfully navigated the winter, a rise in COVID cases, continual NYC DOE policy revisions—and we are still doing quite well and thriving.

Please see enclosed your student’s most current transcript with brand new grades for Semester 2021-22 found at the top of the transcript.  The grades are the formal grade that is the result of averaging 1st and 2nd Quarter grade report card grades.  Please review these grades with your student and set goals for the 3rd and 4th Quarters.  These quarterly grades, which then be averaged for their formal transcript grade issued in June.

Also, please be aware that now every single BCAM student’s academic record can be found in their MySchools Account.  If you do not know how to access your student’s MySchools Account, please immediately email our Parent Coordinator Joseph Cooper (jcooper12@schools.nyc.gov) and he will get you linked to your account. 

Next, please be aware we will be sending you a link to complete the annual DOE Parent/Family Survey about your experience with our school.  Please complete it! It will take 5 minutes electronically from your phone or device.  It gives us good feedback about how we can support you and your student.

Finally, the below bullets provide you key information about important topics and dates to support you in maintaining strong connection to our school community.  We will continue to share updated information constantly via our Kinvo Text System, our website www.bcamhs.org, our Instagram @bcamhs, and phone calls.  Please do not hesitate to contact us by Kinvo text, call (718)230-5748 or email Mr. Cooper with any questions or concerns.  Your child’s safety and security, and academic and emotional development is our clear mission.   As always, in any situation, we are partners and we are #BCAMStrong!!!
