Principal's Message

Friday, September 7, 2018


Greetings from Bernabi where I can say with all sincerity, we have had the single greatest start to any year in my entire career!  When our students walk into those doors, full of excitement and donning those beautiful smiles, the feeling around our school is like no other!  I have spent a majority of my time this week with students; visiting classrooms, hanging out in our hallways and eating lunch in our cafeteria and I am so impressed with how quickly they shifted into school mode, even our newest kindergarten friends who are off to an incredible start!  Starting today and carrying into next week, Mrs. Brien, our school psychologist, Mr. Shufelt, our school counselor and I will be meeting with all students by grade level to ensure everyone knows our school-wide expectations and feels supported in exceeding those expectations each and every day!


I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you, my Bernabi families, for the commitment, collaboration and partnership you continue to provide to Bernabi as we work together to provide the best environment possible for your children to learn, love and grow.  It has been so wonderful to see so many of you over the last few weeks at the many events we planned to ensure a smooth transition into the school year, and I hope to continue to see you all throughout the year. 


That said, I wanted to remind you of the district’s refined greeter protocols for all visitors.  While we hope to get to know many of you by face and name, we are asking all visitors to come prepared with a government issued ID.  Knowing you may be asked, please have this ready upon arrival.  It will also help to know the name of your children’s teachers, as we are asking all faculty to inform our greeter of anticipated guests in advance.  If you know you are coming to school for any reason, it will enhance efficiency and security if you could call ahead.  Our greeters, Mrs. Sue Gary and Mrs. Spencer can be reached at 349-5413.  As for dismissal, please remember that we close our main entrance at 3:15 each day and ask that you enter through our cafeteria where Mrs. Gary is positioned until dismissal is complete.  Thank you, also, for remembering to use our brightly painted crosswalks at all times.  My faculty and staff have been asked to address anyone walking around or through our buses and redirect them to our crosswalks—thanks for your help with this!


For morning drop offs, please also remember that we offer two options: regardless of grade level, parents can continue to use the east side drop off loop between 8:45 and 8:55 am, or if walking your children in, can do so through the main/front entrance during that same window of time.  All doors, which are supervised by adults during arrival, will be closed and locked at 8:55 promptly, after which time you would need to walk your child into the front entrance and sign him/her in to school late. 


As we look ahead to the coming weeks, I wanted to share a few important dates with you in case you haven’t written them down yet!

  • Fri, Sept. 14: School Spirit Day: wear your blue and gold or your grade level colors!
  • Mon, Sept. 17: Constitution Day: wear red, white and blue!
  • Tues, Sept. 25: Bernabi Parents Association Meeting, 6:00 pm at Bernabi
  • Wed, Sept. 26: School picture day


Lastly, thank you for helping me welcome our newest members of the Bernabi family!
