Principal's Corner

Dear BFPP Families,


I have written end of year notes for 20+ years in my professional career but none ever feel adequate, this year especially. I am torn because while I am ready for a break and the opportunity to rejuvenate, I know that the end of this year also brings many goodbyes. From the bottom of my heart thank you and go forth with an extra bit in your heart from all of us at BFPP.


With tear filled eyes and hugs from afar, k
