Principal’s Message 5/13

Date: May 13, 2013 Author: kristin Categories: Parent Updates, Principals Message, PTA

Hello BA Community,

Shaded Lunch Structure
I hope you’ve heard from your students about BA’s new shade structure/covered eating area on the upper playground. The gala opening Friday included a “flash mob” dance by Mrs. Melton’s 4th grade—a complete surprise to most of us, and a huge hit with all!

Our PTA began saving for this outdoor enhancement 5 years ago, and this year—thanks to the persistence of our two co-presidents Sara Mancini and Julie Juergens, and an effective partnership between our PTA, our district, and SCEF—we pulled it off. Please join me in a big THANK YOU to all who helped improve our children’s lunch experiences.

DRAFT Strategic Plan Update
What an exciting time in education! Districts across the country are striving to redesign schools, curricula, and instructional strategies to prepare students to succeed in this rapidly changing world. During the past two years our school board, staff, and community have been working hard to develop our 5-year Strategic Plan. The most recent draft is posted on the district website; please see it:

School Site Council 3:00 Thursday: All Are Welcome
Meanwhile, our School Site Council is working with our school staff to develop Brittan Acres’ goals for our own strategic plan, our Single Plan for Student Achievement. Our draft goals for next year are aligned with the district’s Draft Strategic Plan, and call for engaging, relevant learning experiences, and innovation around a variety of 21st century approaches to teaching and learning. Thursday’s Agenda and Minutes are posted on our website.

***SAVE THE DATE: Open House Wednesday, 5/22!

Best wishes,
John Triska
