8th Grade Field Trip

Dear 8th Grade Families,


On Wednesday, May 17, the eighth grade will be attending a production of Romeo and Juliet by the Shakespeare and Company at the Strand Theater in Dorchester. The eighth graders read Romeo and Juliet in English class, created written adaptations, watched the 1968 version of the movie, and completed projects inspired by the play in Theater Arts. Now they have the opportunity to see an adaptation live on stage.

Trip details

  • Students will have first period as usual, then meet in the dining room and have a snack before departing. We will be back for a late lunch and then students will attend their last period class at 1:25 p.m. and attend afternoon activities as usual.
  • Beaver field trips do not involve any shopping. Your child does not need to bring any money on this trip.  
  • Below you will find an important note from the school nurse Talia Ossowski about field trip medical information.


We expect this to be both an educational and fun class experience and, of course, we expect everyone to be on their best behavior.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Associate Director of Middle School

A note from the nurse

Any non-emergency medications (anything other than the medications listed above) need to be checked by the school nurse at least 3 days in advance of the field trip. A field trip medication form must accompany the medication and be brought to the school nurse. Please contact the school nurse at tossowski@bcdschool.org or 617-738-2739 if you have any questions.
