BTU School K-8 Winter Lights Celebration

Dear BTU School Community,

Please join us on December 20th to celebrate our community and honor the rich diversity present in our school. Scholars from grades K through 8 will perform a collection of songs that will teach us about many cultures and celebrations that are an  important part of our history and our community.

Because of the limited space available to accommodate everyone, we have divided the performances in three separate groups. Choose the times that best work for you and your family. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL HERE ON DECEMBER 20th!

We’ll Miss You Kevin!

Here is an open letter sent to the BTU School Community by Kevin. Kevin was one of our school custodians for a few months this year.

Dear BTU Friends and Staff:
 
I want to thank everyone for the warm wishes, help getting acclimated and overall great attitude from the staff and students.  Although I’m moving on, the BTU School will be a part of me forever.  I have never met such a nice and caring group of staff and educators.  These kids are in great hands, as I see the dedication (working weekends/long hours) that everyone gives to this school.  Lastly, as a lifelong union member, I applaud and support what this school is about.  You’re fighting for all unions whether you realize this or not.
 
Thanks
 
Kevin

Debate Team Achievements!

bdl

Hello BTU coaches, teachers, principals, and all other BDL volunteers,

BDL would like to extend congratulations to debaters and coaches for an impressive performance at Suffolk University. This past Saturday was our first middle school debate tournament of the season and it was the second-largest in BDL history! BTU competed against 17 other middle schools around the city. Here are some highlights from BTU’s debates this past weekend:

  • Every team won at least one round out of three
  • The teams of Gonzalez-Oviedo & Kamiya and Murray & Guevara won all three of their rounds
  • Diaz (6th), Kamiya (7th), Johnson (10th), Guevara (12th) all placed as top speakers of the tournament in a large and competitive field

These results are a testament to the hard work put forth by debaters and coaches, and BDL is excited to watch the team improve over the rest of the season.  We look forward to seeing what BTU debaters can do as they keep moving up into even higher divisions!

Please share this letter of congratulations with your school community so that everyone can celebrate the success of the BTU debate team.  We look forward to seeing you at our next middle school tournament, November 11th, at Suffolk University!

 

Sincerely,

The Boston Debate League team
