Superintendent's Memo - Monday, December 6, 2021

Hi Team,

Our Annual Education Results Report AERR summary and Year Two results was approved by the Board and is posted online. The learning that continues in our schools and classrooms continues at such a high level. I am extremely proud of the results and know that it takes an amazing team to achieve these results. Thank you to all staff for your efforts in achieving, supporting and improving student learning outcomes for our students.

The BTPS Audited Financial statement is on our website. This was approved by the Board of Trustees in November.

I am excited to share the bus contest posters, winners and video. Here is the Bus Poster Contest Video with the amazing work from our students. I want to congratulate all the winners who are listed below. We have many talented artists in BTPS.

Our BTPS Learning on the Trail Podcast has a new episode where we interview an Aquatic Toxicologist. Listen here:
