Words from our Principal

BVM Families,

This week we celebrate Presidents' Day and we will have a 4 day weekend that also coincides with Valentine's Day. The schedule for this week and next is posted below. Thank you to our amazing PTSA for preparing Valentine's Day goodie bags for our students and teachers. They were able to hand out 100 treats today to students in a lunch time drive through. It was such a success, we will plan another one for the spring.

February is Black History Month. How are we honoring the stories and contributions of black Americans in our classrooms, our community, and our homes this month and all year long? I have shared some resources with our teachers that they can use in their classes as we acknowledge these stories and contributions.

We have a few more weeks before progress reports will be released on February 26th. Please take advantage of the next few weeks to turn in any missing assignments and attend our virtual tutoring sessions and office hours. Our teachers are here to help!

Next Wednesday, February 17th at 10:00am, I will host a virtual Coffee with the Principal. Join us to ask questions and get school and district updates. The Google Meet link will be emailed out on Tuesday.

Have a wonderful 4 day weekend with your families.
