Principal's Message

Friday, June 17, 2022

After 6 years as principal at Bernabi, you’d think by now that my final message for the school year would be quick and easy: “Have a great summer!” or “Thanks for a great year!”  Then again, if you know me at all, you know it would never be that simple.

From Covid fatigue to our shared grief over Mr. Mantell to the state of our nation where school shootings continue to happen, this year has been hard on our hearts and our minds, and it brought a lot of emotion to the forefront of how we navigate our daily lives and interactions.  While I love what I get to do each day, I have never been more welcoming of summer break as I know just how desperately everyone from students to families to teachers, needs time to step away and reset, myself included.

As I step away, I do want to wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy summer together, and offer my gratitude for your support during this unthinkably difficult period of time.  It is my greatest hope that come fall, we all return having given ourselves what we need to start new.  I believe in you, I believe in us and I believe in our future.  #OneBernabi

As a special gift to start your summers, I wanted to share links to a few special videos that your children may have seen once or twice before.  Grab a tissue and enjoy, then take a breath and let summer’s warmth embrace you.

Last but not least, while many of you know this already, I promised our amazing school nurse, Mrs. Brenda Kurz, that I would share news of her retirement effective June 30.  Brenda has taken such amazing care of our children and families and I know that she will be missed by one and all. 

Wishing you all the best,

Dave
