We had an awesome week this past week at BPA! We started off with our 5th graders engaging in the 5th grade GA Writing Test! We had 100% of our students in attendance, therefore we did not have any make-ups! Beginning last Wednesday, we opened up our school-wide annual Book Fair! Thanks to Ms. Cartwright for organizing this with Scholastic....we ended the week with what I would say was one of the greatest memories that I will ever have of being here at Burgess Peterson! Our students did an awesome job at BPA Got Talent! This event, under the leadership of Jeanne Fore and the PTA, was absolutely breathtaking. Our students rock! They are confident and extremely eager to hit the big stage! I personally want to thank the entire PTA body and the parents who helped Jeane make this possible. With the snow days, this event was pulled off in less than one month! OUTSTANDING!
When our students are given opportunities, they go over and beyond. I am extremely proud of them.
The second semester is truly going by at the speed of lightening! Please look in your child's courier every week for updates/calendar events to stay abreast of what is going on. Our next big event will be our Father/Daughter Dance on March 29th.
Please continue to do whatever it takes to ensure that students come to school every day. Unless they are ill, or other extenuating circumstances, please make this the only exception that they miss school. We also want to decrease the percentage of students with excessive tardies. Based on safety concerns, all tardy students must now be signed in by a parent/guardian after 8am. Thanks in advance for doing all that you can for Burgess Peterson Academy to keep a high percentage of students with great attendance. We had a ball this past Friday at our Popcorn Dance. Our next dance will be April 4th. We will invite all students with perfect attendance for the month of March.
I look forward to a great week! Don't forget to purchase your yearbook. It is going to be awesome!
