BMP Spirit Day

Bren Mar Park spirit continues to shine with Bren Mar Park Spiritwear Day!


Message from the Admin Team


Dear BMP Families,

It is hard to believe that we have arrived at the end of the 2019-20 school year!  As we close out the year, we have already begun working in preparation for the next school year. 

Thanks to the community members who participated in the review of our Title 1 Family Engagement Policy and Compact.  We are currently finalizing dates for Family Learning Nights.  We will present our Title 1 information with our school community as part of our Back to School Information Session scheduled for Friday, August 21, 2020 starting at 10:30 am.  It is still to be determined whether or not this can take place in person, however we are already planning forward to ensure that all families can access the information online.

Continuity of Learning opportunities continue to be available to you and your child throughout the summer.  More information is included below. We encourage any and all families to take advantage of our Bren Mar Park staff who are hosting virtual office hours between June 29 and July 31

Bren Mar Park laptop return for any students who are moving and students promoting to middle school will be shared later this summer.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support of our staff as we have quickly learned and implemented new ways of teaching during these past months of distance learning.

Your Partners in Education,

Elizabeth Williams and Erin Lear

The Bren Mar Park Admin Team

Bren Mar Park Vision Statement

“A community of learners thriving in a diverse world” 

Bren Mar Park was proud to share this revised vision statement with our school community earlier this year.  In the fall, we will continue to work on our mission statement, which will outline our commitments in practices to support each of our students every day.  Our goal is to deeply embed this in our daily work as educators, students and a community.  We look forward to this work in more detail next school year.
