BJH Bobcat News
August 28- September 1, 2023
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend Back to School Night (BTSN). For those who were unable to attend, here is a copy of the BTSN presentation. Due to limited time, I was unable to complete the presentation. However, I look forward to seeing you at other parent events such as Coffee with the Principal meetings and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) meetings where I will discuss important topics pertaining to our school. BTSN Presentation
