Dear BFCCPS Community, 
It's hard to believe that we are already in the Third Trimester of the 2018-2019 school year! This is typically an incredibly exciting, but also incredibly busy time of year.

Today I am writing to share details of the 2018 Fine and Performing Arts Week.  You will find information about the upcoming Spring Concerts, our Annual Art Show, the Memorial Day Concert and much more.  Please be sure to review the upcoming dates and mark your calendars accordingly.

Have a great rest of the week, 

Mrs. Heather Zolnowski
Head of School
