BRMS Campus DOGS
Attention BRMS Dads!

BRMS is looking for some amazing Dads to become Campus DOGS (Dads of Great Students). If you are willing to give up some time in the morning and afternoon working with the public and children and have an upbeat and positive attitude, this is right up your alley. This is a volunteer experience that would be worth your time. We need Dads willing to complete a volunteer packet and fingerprinting in order to volunteer at the school. Campus DOGS will assist with monitoring the parking lot, traffic flow in the pick-up and drop-off area, and walking the halls before and after school. This is an incredible opportunity for Dads to be involved in the school.

If this is of interest to any Dads, please stop by and see me. Volunteer packets are available in the office. This packet needs to be completed prior to fingerprinting. Fingerprinting is done on Fridays after 1:00 p.m. Please check with Mrs. Lopez to arrange a time to be fingerprinted. We look forward to having some DOGS assisting at the school.

Thank you-
Alicia Phillips
Important Announcement for Parents
This year BRMS will be promoting healthy snacks and food at school. Effective the beginning of the 2014 – 2015 school year, food items to celebrate student birthdays will no longer be permitted due to an increase of students with food allergies, illnesses, food reactions, and childhood obesity. Parents are encouraged to bring in items that are nonfood based such as school supplies to share with their class for birthday recognitions. Because our school values uninterrupted instructional time, we appreciate your support in this new practice. Healthy snacks are becoming a common practice in many school districts across the nation and in Arizona schools.

BRMS has designated three scheduled parties for the school year:
 
·         December  - Winter Celebration
·         February – Valentine’s Day
·         May – End of the Year
 
These parties will have a healthy snack theme to promote healthy eating. We will continue to allow students to bring in a healthy snack during the morning break and ask that students not bring in soda or sugary items to consume at that time.

Thank you for supporting our school with this endeavor. If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Alicia Phillips, Principal
