Get Involved

BNS has an active parent community and committees that cover a wide variety of interest areas. Committees create programming, work with faculty and staff, and help focus the community’s attention on different topics. Committees are always looking for more members who can bring passion and expertise. Learn more about committees below or suggest a new committee to the PTA!

Konstella To help the BNS community stay on top of  events and activities, the PTA is rolling out a new communications platform called Konstella. This will provide one location for parents to stay informed about their children’s activities and school events. Parents will be able to follow and manage information for all their children at the school in one place using the website and app. View Parents Getting Started Guide and BNS usage guidelines for Konstella here. (Note: full Konstella roll out will happen in Fall 2019)

You can also send notes to your teacher via Backpack mail.
