BF Home and School Association

The HSA supports BF activities and provides additional enrichment to the school program. We encourage parental involvement at all levels. You make it possible for the HSA to promote the welfare of all students, maximizing opportunities for their physical, mental, and social development.

HSA meetings are held each month.  These meetings are open to all BF parents/guardians. We encourage all to attend.

We are always in need of volunteers.  Our volunteer sign-up form can be found below in the "Flyers" folder. Help us help the BF community!

May is Mental Health Month, and the culminating presentation of this year’s Community Outreach Program on Student Wellness will deeply address this important topic on Wednesday, May 18 in the Benjamin Franklin Middle School auditorium from 7:00-9:00 pm.

Please join us to hear from an expert panel on mental health including representatives from Care Plus NJ, Inc., West Bergen Mental Healthcare, Inc., and the Stigma-Free program.

Additionally, they will talk about resources that are available, both in the school and community, and the importance of removing stigma.
