Principal's Message

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Greetings from Bernabi!  I have some important updates to share below, so I’ll get right to it!

Tonight is our second parent teacher conference night.  While some of you completed your conference back in October, others have conferences set up for tonight.  Over the next month, our BPT will be seeking your input on how this January date worked out as we continue to try to meet your needs as our partners in education.

As we look ahead to 2020 and even next school year, please know that it is almost time to register incoming kindergarteners for 2020-2021!  If you have a child, or know of anyone in the Bernabi boundary who has a child born between December 2nd, 2014 and December 1st, 2015, please let us know by filling out and returning the salmon colored forms we sent home last month.  No form?  No problem!  Give us a call at 349-5401 so that we can plan accordingly for our continuously growing population at Bernabi!

Last and yes, MOST IMPORTANTLY: this Friday, January 17, is our second half-day of the school year.  While we focused on STEAM in November, our instructional focus with students this time around is on cultural diversity and responsiveness, which will look like rotations and activities around our theme: “All Are Welcome,” a book by Alexandra Penfold.  In their respective grade levels, students will collaborate on activities/rotations that support the theme and include texts and concepts such as race and culture, including a whole group activity where they will engage in a reading of this book and mixing of paint to match their skin color toward the creation of a grade level mural/collage of each child's hand print.

A very important change that everyone needs to be aware of: dismissal on our half days will now be at 11:40 NOT 11:50, and the expectation is that buses will roll at 11:50 am.  If you are picking up your child, please be present in our cafeteria between 11:30 and 11:40 am this Friday, and please be sure that you have sent in a note so that we are prepared!

That is far too much for this update, so I’ll end with a quick thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!
