Gate Passes
We would like to remind all parents that we have started the process of changing the gate passes following the procedures detailed in the email sent to parents on the 1st of April from info@bscr.ed.cr. Please note that as from the month of May, this will only apply to students 12 years or older departing at the 3.00 p.m. exit.  All parents who would like to request a gate pass for their child to leave campus unaccompanied must now complete the new form as explained in said email.  As of Monday 2nd of May, only the new gate passes will be valid.
 
Early Years and Primary
 
Book Week
Next week we have many activities that will focus on reading and literature as we celebrate “Book Week”. Each class will spend part of each day focusing on special literature related activities. However, we also have two special days towards the end of the week. On Thursday 28th of April, all students will be able to come to school in pajamas. In addition, on Friday 29th all students are invited to come to school dressed as a “Character from a book”.  Both Thursday and Friday activities are optional and if students choose to not take part then they should still wear school uniform.  Any student doing PE on these days should also bring in their sports kit if their costume will limit their ability to take part in PE activities. During this week, and in compliance with the current health and safety protocols, we will be able to invite a limited number of parents onto campus for reading activities throughout “Book Week”.  As a result, if any parent, or grandparent, would like to come onto campus to read a story to their child’s class then please do email the class teacher to arrange a time.
 
Secondary
 
Book Week: Costume contest
The Spanish, English and French departments are organizing several activities during Book Day, which will take place on Tuesday 26th of April. We will have a costume competition during Registration time, with costumes based on literary characters. We encourage all Secondary students to start searching for or making their costumes for that day.  There will be other activities during breaks and language lessons to motivate the whole community to read, and share their experiences and talents.
 
Secondary Uniforms
We would like to remind all Secondary students that they are expected to dress appropriately at all times while at School.  As a result, students are not permitted to come to school in ripped jeans, beach shorts or wear leggings which are not black.  Flip flops and crocs are also prohibited.
 
Parent-Teacher Meetings
Thank you to all Secondary parents who participated in the Parent-Teacher Meetings on Wednesday.  If a parent was unable to schedule a meeting with a teacher for any reason then please either contact the teacher directly by email or contact Reception (reception@bscr.ed.cr).
 
European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad
We would like to congratulate Nicole Lipschitz on achieving a bronze medal at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad which was held in Hungary between the 6th and 12th of April.  Nicole, who was one of four students representing Costa Rica, competed against female mathematicians from all over the world.  Many congratulations to Nicole on her outstanding achievement – EGMO Announcement
