We are hopeful that all of you had a great weekend! As we enter into our fourth week of school, I am excited to announce that we will have our annual school wide Curriculum Night tomorrow, Tuesday, August 26th at 6pm. In conjunction with the PTA meeting first, all parents will have the opportunity to engage in an in-depth understanding of the expectations of the school year, everything from what will be studied in every content area/unit to field trips! While this is not as individualized as a parent/teacher conference, all parents should leave with an in-depth understanding of what it will take to support all of our students this year! Please make every effort to attend. We will have child-care for kids age 4 through 5th grade. We will have two sessions to accommodate siblings. The first session will last from 6:45pm-7:15pm. The second session will last 7:25pm-7:55pm. Our first PTA MEETING will begin promptly at 6:00pm. The PTA needs your support.
We will also have the opportunity during the PTA meeting to engage in our annual Title I meeting.
Very important! Please ensure that we always give teachers at least a 24 hour notice (per Board policy) if we are interested in observing in the classroom. Instructional time is very important. Thanks for working with us to protect our learning environment. It is also critical that ALL visitors stop by the main office. Teachers have been instructed to NEVER release students unless directed to do so by the main office. This is a very important aspect of our school wide safety and supervision plan.
Please consider supporting our after-school program. Globaltech Academy is one of the best kept secrets in APS! Offered to all students at BPA, the program offers students an extended experience in robotics, as well as an array of fitness/dance programs! Please see a few pictures in this week's weekly blast on just how much our kids are being exposed to. The program is offered Monday through Friday, 2:30pm-6:30pm. Please stop by the main office or www.globaltechacademy.com<http://www.globaltechacademy.com> for more information.
