WELCOME TO BFIS!
It is important to us that new families feel a part of our community as soon as possible, providing a quick and easy transition for students and parents. To meet this goal, BFIS provides a Welcome Program designed to help new students and their families make early connections within our friendly and inclusive community. Once you arrive, you’ll become part of it.
"Excellent welcome program, we especially liked the pre school, during holiday buddy introduction. It provided all three kids the chance to get to know someone before the first days of school, plus explore the city and their surrounds. Again the best orientation/buddy program we have been involved with." (Ford Family)
"Definitely a highlight for our 2 girls! It made them feel very welcome and reduced much anxiety!"(Forer Family)

Each Tuesday BFIS will send to all families an online newsletter informing about upcoming events, field trips, student activities, academic highlights of the week, and other practical information.
