Principal’s Message 2/14/11

Hello BA families.

What an exciting time! Wednesday we kicked off our annual Read-A-Thon with an all-school DEAR (Drop Everything And Read). The children tell me daily that I’ll soon be coming to school dressed as a superhero, due to their reading diligence. Our Book Fair runs this week, with our evening event Thursday. A record number of 4th graders turned in ROPES forms last week, and I’ve already met with several to help refine their very interesting topics. Spring Fling Raffle sales are underway, and families are doing a great job supporting our student sales force. Meanwhile, 3rd and 4th graders are getting ready to sign up for the BA Talent Show beginning Tuesday.

With all of this in motion, Presidents Week ahead, I hope you will still make time to attend Dr. Baker’s budget presentation at our School Site Council Meeting tomorrow: Tuesday, February 15. All are welcome. This is a very trying time for education, and your informed citizenship is essential to our mission. We will meet on the MUR stage; please enter via the amphitheatre door.

Would you like to read the meeting agenda? A new feature of our website beginning this week is the accessibility of online agendas and minutes of our School Site Council meetings.

As always, I appreciate this amazing community. BA families are behind all of the ways we are improving the work we do to support our children.

Best wishes,

John Triska
