Words From Our Principal
I am very excited to share with you that our students have been doing a great job this semester. Our students are being successful academically, participating in clubs, playing sports, and performing in our visual and performing arts programs. Our teachers do a great job in keeping our students engaged and making learning fun and relevant. I want to thank all parents for working in collaboration with BVM to help meet the goals of our students. I hope you have a great and safe fall break.
Eduardo Reyes, Ed.D.

Student Art Work
Art students painted floral closeups by mixing muted or natural colors. They then added salt to the watercolor backgrounds (negative spaces) for amazing texture.

Fuel for School
Lately, I have been seeing many of our students in the nurse’s office with complaints of headache, dizziness and stomach pain. While sometimes these complaints can be signs of a more serious issue, I find that more often than not, these symptoms occur because students are not eating prior to coming to school or during the lunch period. Most of the time, students will say they have no time for breakfast or have forgotten to pack a lunch. Some students do not like to wait in line during lunch so they decide to skip lunch.
A little planning ahead, such as making breakfast or lunch the night before and packing small snacks to keep in the backpack when breakfast is skipped or lunch is forgotten, will help keep students from missing instructional time when visiting the nurse for “hunger lows.” Parents, consider taking your student with you when you do the food shopping to help them find healthy food items for quick breakfasts, lunches and snacks. It’s easier to stick to a healthy eating plan if the foods your student likes to eat are available.
Enjoy your Fall Break.

Mighty Crusaders! You have made it through the first progress report and many have taken advantage of the interventions to help with your grades. We will be going on break so be sure to rest up so you are ready for the remainder of the semester. Those of you that have fallen behind, check with your teachers and Jupiter Grades for missing assignments that you can complete during the Fall Break. Come see your counselor if you have any questions. Have a great and safe break!
Occasionally you may experience issues with your iPad. Maybe your internet isn’t working, apps keep crashing, or you are having trouble submitting assignments. Here are a few things to try.
1. Update your iPad- Tap the Settings icon on your home screen. Then tap General. Then tap Software Update. Then tap Download and Install. It is best if you can do this at school, with your IPad plugged in or at least 50% battery power
2. Hard reset- Hold down the power button and the home button at the same time for a few seconds until your iPad turns off. Wait a few minutes and then turn it on again. You should see a black screen with a white apple on it. In a few minutes it will show the normal home screen.
3. Wi-Fi problems at home
If you have an app called SUHSD Login open it and login:
· If you have the app, open it and login:
· If you do not have the SUHSD Login app, find the app called LANrev Apps. Open it and tap Profiles, then tap Install. You should now have the SUHSD Login app on your iPad. Open it and login:
If nothing works and you are still having issues ask you Advisory teacher for a pass to the Genius Bar they can help you out.
