Principal's Corner

A Note From the Principal

Image for A Note From the Principal

Let me start by saying thank you to everyone who voted for BPS in the Best of the Best Competition run by the Chattanooga Times Free Press. I do not yet know the results of the voting, but please know your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. We will strive to do our best for your kids each and every day regardless of how any vote may turn out.

Did you know that BPS is a Title I school? Just in case you do not, here are some things you may want to know. Title I (Title One) is a federal school program that is funded based upon the number of students receiving free/reduced lunch services. In Catoosa County, nine out of the ten elementary schools qualify for Title I services. Schools use funds from this program to improve student achievement, especially in the areas of reading and math. This money cannot be spent, however, without hearing from all of our community. This means that we need input from you as parents, from community members, and from BPS staff. This helps us make sure that any money we get from the Title program goes towards worthwhile purchases. Our next Title I meeting where you can give input is on Feb. 6th at 8:30 a.m. If you cannot make that meeting, please feel free to place any suggestions you may have into the Title I box located in the main office. We look forward to hearing from you.

If you would like to hear some great Valentine music, swing by BPS the morning of Feb. 14th. Our music teacher, Mr. Gillespie, will be serenading the car riders. :)

Well that is all for now. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
