Principal’s Message 1/5/2015

Date: January 4, 2015 Author: admin Categories: News, Principals Message

Welcome Back!

Happy New Year, and Welcome Back. I look forward to our important work together in 2015, continuing to develop the potential of our children.

Big News: Congratulations, Cathy Eitel

Our wonderful Cathy Eitel has accepted a new job at the district office where she will continue to support our work, but from a new perspective—as an executive assistant to senior administration.

Many of you know Cathy began her service at BA as a PTA volunteer when her own children attended the school. She became School Secretary in 1996, and has supported children and families, teachers, and staff ever since. For generations of students and families, Cathy has been the face, if not the soul, of BA, and I know all of us will miss her greatly. At the same time, I know all of us want what is best for Cathy. After these many years at BA, she feels ready for a change and the new challenges it will bring. I know you join me is wishing her the best in this next stage in her career.

Cathy will stay with us to help train and transition a new School Secretary, and when everything is in place here, she will set up her new office at the DO. We will make sure the children, families, and staff feel secure before the transition is complete.

Rescheduled School Site Council 3:00 Thursday, 1/8

This will be for the agenda we put off due to the “Great Deluge of 2014.” We meet in the office conference room, and all are invited to attend.

English Learner Principal’s Coffee 8:30 Friday, 1/9

Did you know BA has students with 20 different home languages? Come learn about the ways we support our English Learners, and share your ideas to help us improve. Coffee and morning treats will be provided! We will meet right after drop off in the MUR.

Best wishes,

John Triska
