To assist our day families, The Bement School offers daily van transportation services each year. This service runs from the towns of Amherst, Bernardston, Greenfield, Hadley, and Northampton and pickup points and routes are determined based upon demand.
Our ability to accommodate requests for this service is limited by the level of demand for the service, and by applicable state law regarding capacity of our vans. If there are more requests than we can accommodate, we will give preference on a first-come, first-served basis.
Although the costs are not finalized for the 2019-2020 school year, we are estimating the charges to be:
Greenfield - $2,000 round trip and $1,000 for one way
Bernardston - $2,500 round trip and $1,500 for one way
Amherst/Hadley/Northampton - $2,700 for round trip and $1,900 for one way.
Reduced rates will be available for families receiving financial aid.
If you are interested in transportation services, please contact the Bement business office by June 1.
For more information about routes and combining transportation with after-school care, please call the Bement business office at 413-774-7061.
Our goal for the Bement Summer Reading Program is to encourage our students to read for pleasure, explore new genres and formats, and to see themselves as readers.
We are asking each upper school student to read two or more books from the list linked below. The list represents a range of interests and maturity levels, and students should choose books that are right for them.
Our Super Readers program encourages lower school students to read creatively while they are away from school. To participate, students simply need to track the titles and times they have read using a downloadable reading log. For every 15 minutes read, students can earn a bead, and they can trade up to a different type of bead the more they read. Each student will receive a chain and brag tag to put their beads on so they can design their own creation with the beads they earn.
