Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe and managing your way through this crazy COVID crisis. As we wind down the school year, I would like to share some important dates with you.

May 15 Progress Reports emailed to parents

May 18-22 Uniform Collection (choir, colorguard, and mariachi)

June 5 SAVE THE DATE- Virtual Promotion (details TBD)

We are finalizing plans for our 8th grade virtual promotion. A team of amazing staff members are preparing a video that will be emailed out to all students. We are also planning for a drive through pick up of promotion certificates, yearbooks and spring pictures. All plans are awaiting district approval and will be shared with you ASAP, but I am hoping to do all of this on June 5th.

We will also need to coordinate textbook collection during the last week of school . This will also be a drive through format to protect everyone's health.

BVM is still serving meals every Tuesday from 11am- 1pm, or until we run out of food. Come on by and get lunch and breakfast for your children!

Wishing you all a happy and successful last few weeks of school. It is such a strange and uncertain end to the year for us. We are thinking of our students every day and we hope we are reunited again soon!

Be safe!
