Principal's Corner

A Note from the Principal

Image for A Note from the Principal

Where has the school year gone? It seems like we just had our open house night! Oh well, I guess that means that I am getting old. (I am)! Let me take some time and talk to you about some big things going on this last month of the school year. By now you should have received a letter from the school titled “H2O for our Heroes”. This letter informs you about our last service project for the year. We are gathering drinking water for our local first responders (law enforcement, fire department, paramedics, etc.). These people do so much for our community and this is our opportunity as a school to say thank you to them. This is especially personal since we will be getting a school resource officer next year! In case you have not heard, we will be sharing a resource officer with our sister school, Battlefield Elementary. We are very much looking forward to having this person within our building next school year. Finally, the first week of May is teacher/staff appreciation week. Please join me in thanking the BPS staff for ALL that they do! If you will allow me, I can tell you one way you can show them appreciation, especially if your child goes to our after school program. On Friday evening, May 4, our PTO is hosting a “prom” for our staff at an off site facility, and it will begins at 6:00 p.m. Many of our staff work our after school program, so in order for them to get to their event on time, we will close our afterschool program at 5:15 p.m. If your child attends afterschool, it would be a tremendous gift to accommodate this early closing. Well that is all for now. Family Fun Day is coming up, so maybe I will see you on that day. Just remember that you might get wet :)
