Leadership Message

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year. We can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, reading, organizing, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support JV students—both at home and at school. Special thanks to our PAC and BUCPS who, as usual, went above and beyond to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience.

May God's blessing go with us today,

At the end of this school year, we pray.

That you keep us safe and give us rest

So we start again renewed and refreshed.

Full of health, full of fun

Ready to come and learn again.

Most importantly always remember if nothing else; to BE KIND, BE THE CHANGE. It will always lead you to happiness. Have a wonderful summer and may God bless each and every one of you, every day of this wonderful life He gave to us! See you in September!
