Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,

It has been a great week for our music programs. Our choir and band had awesome performances last week at the holiday concert featuring Halloween and Christmas music and at the Band Pageant. We also celebrated all of our fall athletes at the fall sports banquet. Our BVM athletes and musicians are so talented, work so hard, and make us very proud!

We have one week left before Thanksgiving break. Let's make it a great one!
