I've added a short story entitled "After the Fall."  What happened to Humpty Dumpty after he was put back together again?  The question gets answered here!

STUDENTS

There is a way that we can continue the Chess Club!  Take a look at www.chess.com (or use the link to the left where it says "Play Chess!"  You can sign up for the website to play live competition, join tournaments, and register for classes, or you can just hone your skills by playing as a guest against the computer.  You can learn as you play… the computer allows you to take back moves!  There are also online tutorials and puzzles for training your mind that are available to guests, so it isn’t necessary to join the site to enjoy the advantages of developing new strategies and becoming a better chess player!  Obviously there is more available to those who register for the site, but it’ll make you a better chess player whether you do, or you don’t.

This invitation is open to all Bellmawr students!  This website already has millions of members… come join the fun!

In this stressful time, where our spirits can be low, it is good to remind ourselves of the simple joys in life.  Kid President reminds us of this, and shares 25 Reasons to be Thankful.  Check out the link to the left.

Check out the Origami Heart Project on the left.  After creating the heart, write or draw something in it you miss as we continue our quarantine to beat Covid-19.  If you send me a picture of you with your heart I will post it on my webpage in the Photo Album section.  My email address is ddiciano@bellmawrschools.org

Hi to all my Bellmawr Park Friends! 

I hope this message finds you happy, healthy, and safe.  While we are away from school, I wanted you to know that I am still here for you.  Please contact me if you might need my assistance (ddiciano@bellmawrschools.org)!  In the meantime, please take the time to visit the links that I have provided for you.  My most recent video is me reading "Time To Come In, Bear"  I am looking forward to working with you in person again.  Let's hope it's sooner, rather than later!


Sincerely,

Mr. DiCiano

Dear Parents,

Please be advised that during our district shutdown I will be available to you for counseling services on a limited basis.  If a situation arises in which you feel your child needs consultation with me, please contact me via email (ddiciano@bellmawrschools.org).  I will be checking daily. 

I will set up with you a specific time in which I will call to have a telephone session with your child.  This isn't the most ideal of situations, but it will serve as our best option during this unusual time. 

Please stay safe and healthy!

Sincerely,

Dominick DiCiano




The counselors in the Bellmawr school district are available to help you and your child have a successful school year. School counselors work with parents and students in different ways through a program of many services. Each service is aimed at helping students learn and develop to their highest potential. Some of these services are:

• Groups to help children cope with difficult life events or to help them develop positive peer relationships

• Individual sessions to help children academically or with personal concerns

• Classroom lessons to deliver important information to students

• Parent and teacher consultations as necessary to work together to help the student

We look forward to collaborating with you to help your student succeed! If you have questions, please do not hesitate contact us!
