Words from our Principal
Thank you to all of the parents and guardians who have been attending our parent meetings. The attendance at Coffee with Principal and Middle School Success 101 was at about 30 people and the discussions were informative. I encourage you to log on whenever possible to get the most updated information from BVM. Meetings and meeting links are listed on the BVM website under the calendar tab.
The next progress report grades will be released in the Infinite Campus Portal on Friday, November 6th. Many teachers are encouraging students to submit missing assignments by the end of October so they can be graded and factored into the progress report. Please help your students create a timeline to help them submit missing assignments and get caught up.
Halloween is around the corner and many of you might be wondering if it is safe to celebrate. Here is the link to the county guidelines for Halloween. Please celebrate safely to protect our precious community.
Students will be allowed to wear their school-appropriate costumes to their distance learning classes on October 30th.
Wishing you all a safe and wonderful weekend. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this very unusual year.
