Principal's Message

Friday, January 5, 2018

Greetings from Bernabi where regardless of the temperature outside, things are heating up in our classrooms!  As I make my way around the building each day, I am consistently impressed with what I see from both our students and our faculty and staff, all of whom display hard work, collaboration and kindness, an important concept I hope to continue to reinforce throughout the new year.  Looking ahead at the next few weeks, there are a few important dates I want to remind you of, see below for details.

Monday, January 8: Due to today's "cold day," we have rescheduled our PBIS assembly celebrating students who demonstrated appreciation.  If you previously received an invitation to join us in honoring your child, please plan on coming into our gym for a 10:15 start!

Wednesday, January 10: The Bernabi Parents Association will be gathering at 6:00 pm in our conference room.  All are invited and welcome to attend!

Thursday, January 11 is our second half-day of the year for students.  Those in grades K, 1 and 2 will still have their normal specials classes take place in the morning, and while there will be no school lunch, breakfast will still be available as normal.  Our instructional day will start on time at 8:55 am and will end at 11:50 am, with buses departing for home by noon.  Please remember to send in a note if you plan to pick your child up from school on this day.  I can say from experience that any time we dismiss early, there is always a little more last minute action; so thank you for notifying us of your plans in advance!  As for the faculty, we will be hard at work collaborating in teams, analyzing multiple data points to support the creation of instructional goals for all students!

Monday, January 15: there is no school as our nation honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Jumping way ahead to Wednesday, March 7: Kindergarten registration night!  Details will be making their way home to you soon, but please know that we are in the process now of identifying our incoming students for the 2018-2019 school year, and the earlier we know, the better we can prepare.  If you have a child or know of anyone in the Bernabi boundary who has a child born between December 2nd, 2012 and December 1st, 2013, please let us know by filling out and returning the purple form we sent home last month.  Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to call 349-5401.

That’s all for now, but I would like to end by inviting you to visit our district’s and school’s new web pages, found at Your feedback is welcomed!

Stay warm today and through the weekend!
