December Greetings!

As our students, families and staff prepare for the holidays, I am reminded of the dedication of our Barnstable Public School staff. Our BPS staff take great care in ensuring our children experience a sense of community in our schools.  Our schools will continue to provide positive learning environments where tolerance, empathy, and compassion are taught and modeled.  This holiday season provides yet another opportunity to celebrate Barnstable’s many cultures and traditions. Our diverse school community is our strength and we remain a proud world community.

Many of our students are engaged in community service, fundraising, and charitable events to support our community throughout the year, but in particular this holiday season.  Our students “pay it forward” in order to make a difference in the lives of others. BPS students are partnering with numerous organizations for food drives, clothing drives, toy drives and other fundraisers to benefit our community. We know many of our families and staff give in untold ways throughout the year, and we are grateful for the generosity of our community.

Our students’ engagement in community service is just one component of civic life.  The National Council for Social Studies highlights the mission of schools to prepare all students for civic life through their statement: our democratic republic will not sustain unless students are aware of their changing cultural and physical environments; know the past; read, write, and think deeply; and act in ways that promote the common good. In Barnstable Public Schools we are focused on developing our students as knowledgeable, thinking and active citizens!

May you and your family enjoy this holiday season where we are fortunate to witness a spirit of giving across our proud and inclusive community.






Our Vision

The vision of the Barnstable Public Schools is to provide a common, standards-based educational program that will enable EVERY student to achieve rigorous performance standards in order to graduate college and career ready.
