Homeroom Class Activities

Homeroom Class Activities:  Each year the MS & HS students have opportunity to challenge the BCA staff in a team sport activity.  Home school students are welcome to participate in this event.  Send Mr. Cartwright an email (jcartwright@broadfording.com) and just show up at the gym on the given day and time.  The schedule for this is as follows:

9th grade vs. teachers in volleyball - Tuesday, May 5 from 2:30-3:20 p.m.

12th grade vs. teachers in softball (?) - Tuesday, May 12 from 2:30-3:20 p.m.


Field Trip Opportunities


4th Grade - Wednesday, May 13th (10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) - Mt. Aetna Camp in Hagerstown, MD - Science field trip to discover animal and plants with hands-on activities.  $9.00 for 4th graders; parents are free.   Please reply to Mrs. Hirsch by May 6. (Valerie.hirsh@broadfording.com)   If one home school parent of a 4th grade student would like to volunteer to be the chaperone for any interested 4th grade home school student, please contact Celia Torres.  This would enable 4th grade home school students to participate who otherwise may not have opportunity due to the no younger/older sibling policy.  We have a total of seven 4th grade home school students.  Depending on the number of interested 4th graders, we may need 2 parents to assist.
