Words from our Principal

Happy New Year Crusaders!

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with loved ones. We are jumping right back into things for second semester. Saturday school begins on February 1st, you will find our after school tutoring schedule below, and we are right in the middle of winter sports for soccer and basketball. BVM just competed in the VEX Middle School Robotics Championships and we are gearing up for the district science fair. So many exciting things happening at BVM!

Please join me for Coffee with the Principal on January 30th at 6:00 pm. I enjoy hearing your feedback and suggestions and I welcome questions and the raising of concerns during these meetings. We will be asking parents who attend this coffee to answer a few survey questions about your experience at BVM so we can continue to improve our practice and create the best possible academic and social emotional experience for your children.

Many of you will be receiving invitations to our upcoming student celebrations for perfect attendance, straight A's and rising stars. Please RSVP to these invitations so we can accommodate all of our guests. Our students give us many reasons to celebrate and we want to make sure these are special events.

We still don't have a date for promotion but as soon as I receive the information from the district I will share it with you. I realize you are all excited to make your plans for this very important day.

Thank you for your continued support! Let's make this a great second semester.
