  • Camp Kesem Available to Kids Affected by Parents' Cancer
    Hello from Camp Kesem.  
    We just wanted to reach out and let you know that camper applications are now open for Camp Kesem at Saint Louis University. This year, camp will be at Camp Manitowa in Benton, IL from July 22nd-28th. We would love to be an extra resource for those you work with, so let us know how we can best help you in recruiting campers.

    A little bit about us:Camp Kesem is a national non-profit organization that provides a one-week summer camp, completely free to families, for children ages 6-16 who have been affected by a parent's cancer. We have kids all across the board: some have lost a parent, some parents are currently in treatment, and others are in remission. It's a week of fun for the kids, just to get away from the stress of home and meet kids who can relate to their situation. We also do year-round programming to provide support to our families even when they're not at camp.

    Feel free to forward our application and flyer on to any potential families or contacts who may know of families who could benefit from Camp Kesem. Please also feel free to send us the contact information for families we can personally reach out to. Our camper goal is 125, and we have about 40 more spots left to fill. Linked below is a document that outlines directions for our new camper applications that can be found at kesem.force.com.

    We are working to get a pdf brochure out to you. If you would like hard copy brochures, please let us know if those would be helpful and let us know how many you would like. Thank you so much for continually supporting Camp Kesem. As always, please reach out if you have any questions!!

  • Back to School Registration
    We are quickly approaching the start of a new school year. Exciting changes are coming to our family registration process. We will no longer be having the district wide registration at BPMS. All current student registration forms will now be accessed and completed online through the Parent Portal beginning August 1 at 8 a.m. These links are included below. If you do not have access to the parent portal, you can contact one of our school offices.  For families that are enrolling for the first time, they will access a Quick Registration Form on our www.bisonpride.org website, beginning August 1. Once our office receives the completed Quick Registration Form, a district employee will contact the parents with their Parent Portal information so the family can complete the forms on the Parent Portal.  If you do not have Internet access, there will be registration stations at each school building, August 2-3, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  You can also contact a building office if you need additional help. Our building offices are still closed for the summer but will reopen August 1.
