BLA Weekly Update

January 20-24, 2020

Semester 2 - 2019-2020

This week we welcome back returning students and offer a warm welcome to all new students! We look forward to a fresh start and renewed focus! We also welcome back Dr. Betsy Schroeder to BLA. Dr. Schroeder served as Beloit Learning Academy's Assistant Principal during the 2018-2019 school year! We are all very thankful she has returned!


We have high hopes for a strong Second Semester and look forward to the Class of 2020 graduation on June 6, 2020. It's an amazing accomplishment for so many of our students! Until then, we promise to work hard on behalf of your child. However, we can't do this without our families partnership! Please make sure all contact info is updated! Also, if you ever have questions and/or concerns please do not hesitate to come in or contact Dr. Schroeder (608.361.4335) or myself (608.361.4310). Your input is welcome and appreciated.


Blessings to you all!!
